Review Date: Nov 14, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Extremely sharp, built like a tank.
Cons:
None

I bought this lens used a few months ago and while pleased with the results when stopped down a few notches was less than impressed with it's performance wide open. I couldn't understand how the lens got the reputation it had so I decided rather than just accept it the way it was or sell it to send it to Nikon for calibration. The difference is incredible. It's like I have a new lens. Even wide open it's razor sharp with fantastic contrast.

For my shooting style this is the ideal lens and now that it's performing up to it's 'legendary' status I could not be happier.
