Excerpt: I got this lens with the hope that I can have a decent walk around lens for the price... and honestly I did BUT after taking some pics I realize that they were soft and the focus points were off.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh
Excerpt: I bought this lens with hope to avoid heavy spending on the Nikon 24-70mm lens. Got the lens as promised fast and safe. I wanted to try the lens and tried to photography my baby. Outcomes: colors are very nice with good contrast. The problem I had was with the focus and the zoom ring.
Excerpt: I've had this lens since it was introduced. Have used it on Konica-Minolta 7D, Sony A700, and Sony A99V. It was excellent lens on both 7D and A700 but have noticed considerable back focus on A99 @ F2.8/75mm. It gets progressively sharper as F stop larger (4.0-8.0). At 8.0 lens is really sharp.
Excerpt: First off, it is very good optically even at 2.8 but you get corner softness, by f4 everything becomes really sharp, almost prime like. Unfortunately, my copy had some pretty intense back focus (I need to get at -10 on my k-5) at the 35 to 75 range and for the tele end I need to be at +3.
Excerpt: does not have an easy fit onto the nikon D600, used it at an indoor event and is provided good range for group shots and individual photos. On a large group shot indoors at 2.8 there was some distortion in the people on the edges. Sharp focus though even using f/2.8
Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
