This is a killer general purpose lens. A great upgrade over the good but not as good as this kit lenses.reviewed April 13th, 2009 (purchased for $850)
Fast on all the bodies and lightning fast on the E-3. At home out in the elements, in a studio or even underwater. The results speak for themselves - I've had Nikonians gasp at the accuracy and pixel level sharpness from this lens. So good you can crop harder than an average lens, if you need to :-)
It's sharp, really sharp, really really sharp. Worth the money? Absolutely!
