I sold my Olympus gear and went over to the Nikon side - two things I miss however : my 12-60 and my 50-200.reviewed July 18th, 2011 (purchased for $750)
Both lenses were perfect ...
If it wasn't for their SLRs, I would still be with Olympus. The lens quality is just ... awesome.

Left the Olympus camp for Nikon - do however loved this lens and the 12-60. Got it for a cheap price.reviewed July 18th, 2011 (purchased for $500)
Tried the SWD version. Preferred this one based on the price. Technically it's even a bit faster on some of the focal lengths (due to the SWD engine in the newer version they had to give in a small (read very small) % of speed).
If you find one at the price I paid, don't hesitate ... go for it !

Got lucky and found a cheap one.reviewed July 18th, 2011 (purchased for $300)
Bought it based on the reviews I found. Was thinking of the Nikon 85 as a portrait lens, but decided to go for this one.
Apart from the sloooww focus (it is slow), a killer lens !

Not the fastest, but in combination with my other gear, perfect for all round situations.reviewed July 18th, 2011 (purchased for $550)
Built Q is fine, but I stepped over from Olympus and I do have to state that Nikon should aim to do better here.

I sold it after 4 months and went for the 50-200 non SWD - overall it's a good lens, but if you watch ebay for the 50-200, you might find one for a cheap price - go for the big one ...reviewed July 18th, 2011 (purchased for $400)
