1940NAS_180
Review Date: Jan 30, 2010 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $375.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: excellent image quality, good manual focussing, well balanced when handheld
Cons:
no tripod mount.

I bought this lens second hand. I love to work with it. The autofocus is noisy, but generally speaking is very accurate on the d200. When on manual focus the lens works like a dream, even on the small focus-screen of the d200.
When on tripod the combination is out of balance and there is need for a tripodmount on the lens.
Optically I love the sharpness and the bokeh, kind of dreamy.

On a nikon d700 the sharpness on 2.8 has gone, what is left is the irresistible rendering of a dreamy athmosphere.
