9 out of 10 points and recommendedSharp and just the right size for a D7000Bokeh is better on 24 - 70 / 2.8 but for more than double the price !!
I've tested the 24-70 /2.8 and this Lens. If you want to shoot professional portraits you will have to go for the 24-70, but I was surprised by the sharpness and picture quality of this consumer Lens. Far better than the 18-200 ED VR which I was using most of the time. I've tested this lens on a D7000 without the VR the pictures are even sharper if your hand is not shaking. So I normally work without VR but it is a nice to have feature.reviewed August 28th, 2012 (purchased for $590)
10 out of 10 points and recommendedVery wide and very sharp, super HaptikIf you buy this lens you know that you can't use filters, I don't care
This is an excellent lens for landscape photography. And you can do a lot of photographic experiments with it. It works perfect on a D800. For that Camera only the best glass is good enough, but the 16 -35 gives you also excellent results. Just buy this lens if you are a wide angle junkie ...reviewed December 2nd, 2012 (purchased for $1,800)
