Pros: VR, Sharp, Lightweight, AF-S
Cons:
Not really an indoor lens. This lens needs light (what lens doesn't?)

I bought this as general purpose lens for use on a D3. I was initially skeptical to purchase due to many negative reviews, but I noticed that most of these negative reviews were based on a DX body. Since I purchased with a generous return policy, I decided to take the plunge and give it a whirl.

On the D3, this lens is a stellar performer. It is sharp throughout the entire range. This lens is not fast glass and is not at it's best in low light even on the D3. You definitely need flash when working under low light with the 24-120mm to get top performance. However, give it some decent light and the lens is a shining star. The color and contrast is very good. I am very happy with this lens and it's a definite keeper
