Kiron Kid's reviews
9 out of 10 points and recommendedSharp & well built.A bit slow. But if made faster, it would cost MUCH more.
I hesitated for some time, before pulling the trigger on this purchase. My mistake. I promptly burned two rolls of fine grained film with it, and the results are VERY good. Upon glassing the negs, (10x loupe on light table) I found the negs to be very sharp and defined. Great color & contrast. I used it on the F100 body, and had no issues with focusing. Quite fast. It's not too heavy or awkward. It very well, will probably become my "go to" auto-focus lens. It's much better than both versions of the Nikon 24-120 lenses.reviewed July 29th, 2007
9 out of 10 points and recommendedWell built, lightweight with sharp optics.None
I've been very pleased and satisfied with the performance of this lens. It's a bit lightweight, but it is built well. The "macro feature (1:2) is much better than I expected. I've also found it to be quiet sharp at all focal lenghts (aspheric elements). I've used it hard, professionally for over five years, and it still performs like new. I wouldn't hesitate to purchase another one or recommend it to someone else.reviewed January 17th, 2009 (purchased for $300)
