Great all around lens. Took this lens to Punta Cana. Amazingly sharp. Excellent colors. Recently took pictures of a volleyball game at courtside, indoors. Got some great shots. Fast action? No problem! Fast focusing! Works extremely well with Nikon D3. A bit expensive but worth the price! Heavy but sturdy. You will not be disappointed. Now if Nikon only made a 70 - 200/2.8 with the same weight, I'd be all set!

Great Mid Range Lens

Bought this lens and from my first photo I haven't been disappointed. THis lens does everything that Nikon said it would. Built like a tank and along with my Nikon D700 it's a great combination. If you have to save your money to buy this, it's worth the wait. You won't be disappointed by the speed and color with this lens.
