Price and features


Image and build quality, also seems to underexpose on D30/ D60

New out of the box my lens exhibits a ‘Clicking’ and scraping sound between 21mm to 30mm. Also very soft and at some distances (about 2m) auto focus seems to land about .5m beyond the focal point.

Also most images seem about ˝ to 1 stop underexposed.

Overall seems on a par or less then a Tamron AF 19-35mm (only $178).

When I returned it I found three out of four lenses to have the same clicking or scraping sound. and two customers complaining about similar problems with soft focus or zoom problems.
