Review Date: Nov 16, 2009 Recommend? no | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 6 

 
Pros: Nice price for an f2.8. Mechanical build quality seems good.
Cons:
Generally, I think it is (too) soft at 2.8. Much too soft at the long end. Front focusing problems.

Weight/balance is good (for the type) on a D90.
Sharpness at f2.8 is not good. Quite a bit better at f4.
Have had front focusing problems. Still have, but to a lesser extent, even though my lens/body has been sent in for calibration.
I would have bought the Nikon lens, had I bought a new today.
