JohnE Nikon's reviews
4 out of 10 points and not recommendedlight and inexpensivesoft @ 2.8
I did not buy. I have an old 35-70 Nikon 2.8. I compared 6 images shot with this lens @ 2.8 handheld @ 35 and 70 focal length. The Nikon was just sharper and brighter after I downloaded. I did not "upgrade" to the Tamron.reviewed March 24th, 2011
Handheld may be unfair but on the 6 images w each lens the Nikon was consistently sharper.
9 out of 10 points and recommendedsharp even @ 2.8, build qualitylens flare
This a great inexpensive lens.reviewed March 24th, 2011 (purchased for $290)
I use w D7000. I disagree that its not for digital age. I get great images w lens.
I use the con of lens flare creatively as its my only lens without great flare reducing coatings.
An attractive inexpensive alternative to to a 24-70. I bought mine at KEH.
