Pros: Rock solid build, balances well with D100, unbelievably sharp
Cons:
none

Wow. I read everyone else's reviews and took the plunge... not looking back for a minute. This glass is exceptional. It is heavy but it feels 'right' on a D100 body. A smaller body might pose a balance problem.

Images are so sharp it's scary! I'm getting details of people's pores from about 4 feet at 70mm... actually I think I need a solution to knock down the sharpness a bit for my portraits. Little bit of Photoshop should do the trick ;-)

Wicked fast autofocus! I have noticed a little bit of searching for a subject in lower light (studio light with low settings on the model lights) but the manual override takes care of that.

I'd buy it again in a second!
