Pros: I can't understand why this lens has gotten such a bad rap. I've had mine for about a year (bought it used) and have been satisfied with its performance on my D200/D300 bodies. I also use it on F100 when shooting film. It's sharp. has nice contrast and focuses fast enough for most situations. What more could you want?
Cons:
Wide angle isn't wide enough on DX bodies, but great for film bodies. I wish it were a solid f/2.8 throughout the zoom range, but I can't really complain at this price. I may move p to the 24-70 f/2.8 if I decide to go FX in the future.

See my comments above under positive and negative aspects. It's a fine lens at a great price. It does the job without breaking the bank!
