Exceeded my expectations.

Summary: A fantastic lense for the price. Love it! Love it!! I just did a wedding and this lens was all I needed. The focus was pretty sharp; the zoom allowed for beautiful colse-ups as well as capturing the crowd. This lens has become my everyday lens for its flexibility.
Summary: So I guess it's common to get this error message, but I do like the quality of images in low light without flash. I can work with it. After reading several solutions, the one that helped me is: the aperture ring needs to stay locked at 22 in order for the camera to work on the Nikon D80.
Summary: I tried two copies of this lens and was very disappointed, it was not sharp on the edges or corners when shot wide open at any focal length. I would not recommend this lens for professional use.
Summary: Love this lens! I was a little skeptical at first because I am a Nikon product fan. This lens does what it says it will do. Love shooting indoors with it for games etc. Going to be my go to lense for weddings. :) If you are on the fence go ahead and purchase. You will not regret it.
Summary: This lens is absolutely perfect for my D90 Nikon and I could not be happier. I also have the same lens in 70 - 200mm which I used a ton for quick action multi shots and have used it for years but, that lens is not suited for indoors or closer up shots so, I went with my gut on this one for closer / wider angle shots and the 24 - 70mm has become my new favorite all around lens.
Summary: Buy this if you want BLURRY, OUT-OF-FOCUS, and NOT SHARP pictures! Maybe I got a dud but I HATED this lens. I probably got 20% of my pictures in focus. Used with a Nikon D5100 and tried all variations of settings, lightings, environments. I'm not the best photog but I'm certainly educated enough and know when I have a crappy lens... that was this one. Just awful. Best part of this transaction: Amazon refunding my money.
