Robin Leech's reviews
10 out of 10 points and recommendedVery sharp, even to edges; smooth handling;A bit on the heavy side
pairs nicely with the 28-70 mm f2.8 D Nikkor for work, but packing the two of them...is heavy. If I am walking, I often select one or the other, rather than carry both.reviewed August 3rd, 2011 (purchased for $1,400)
I know there are lighter lenses, but they do not have the image quality that these 2 do.
10 out of 10 points and recommendedtacky sharp; very handy zoom rangeheavy
For me, works better on a full frame (e.g., D700 Nikon) rather than on half framesreviewed August 3rd, 2011 (purchased for $1,450)
