Review Date: Mar 11, 2004 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,399.00 | Rating: 8 

 
Pros: Sharp, well placed controls for the most part. Easy to carry
Cons:
Slow AF, Poor quality tripod collar.

I have been amazed how well the VR works and as a result rarely put it on a tripod. Good thing too, because the collar is flimsy and poorly designed. Even after reading many reviews. I was still disappointed with the autofocus, which on the D100 hunts a lot! The carrying case that comes with the lense is nice, but it's a tight fit if the tripod collar is installed. As for the picture quality - Outstanding for the price.
