8 out of 10 points and recommendedExcellent sharpness, nice bokehFront lens extends quite far on closest focusing distance
I used this lens on a D70.reviewed December 11th, 2005 (purchased for $270)
* Good optical performance
* Good build quality
* Not expensive
* Front element extends quite far, working distance from closest focusing point to front element is about 4cm.
* Autofocus is slow (not that important though)
Very good for macro shots of objects that don't run away. Good for portraits too. Unusable for shooting insects.
