Excerpt: I use this on my DX Nikons along with a Tokina 12-28mm f/4. They both cover all the range I need for landscapes, cityscapes, travel, and time lapse. What I like: this lens has amazing image quality.
Summary: This lens is awesome. I take a lot of photos of wrestling inside a gymnasium. The lighting is very poor inside a gym and it's difficult to get a good shot that isn't blurry and/or too dark. The 2.8 aperture at all focal lengths makes this lens ideal.
Excerpt: Just got this lens 2 weeks ago. Used it for a wedding. It's quite remarkable and tack sharp. It's a great hold over till you budget allows for the nikon 24-70mm. Even with that said, I'm not sure I'd part with it.
Excerpt: I recently got this lens for low light photography and inside shooting, but during the initial testing I used is all over. This is a great buy. It is not the Nikon 27-70 2.8 but it is 75% less expensive. I love this lens. It is clear, clean, sharp, fast, focuses w\quickly and very versatile.
Excerpt: I bought this lens a couple years ago and haven't use it much but while browsing the 24-70 ranges, decided to shoot a few with my 23-75 Tamron. After this experiment, I expect to do a lot more with this lens as a walk-around on my D700.
