Review Date: Aug 25, 2010 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $650.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Great colors, bokeh, speed
Cons:
Using on a D700 the corners are a little soft.

I used this lens on a D700. Excellent option for the price. Very fast and quiet lens. I did not have any focus issues as mine was spot on with my D700 and D90 from day 1....without focus adjustments. A few points:

Sharpness - On my D700 center sharpness was excellent and the corners did not get sharp until about 35mm. At 24mm they were a little weak until stopped down considerably. On the D90 sharpness was excellent from corner to corner.

Size - Excellent, much smaller than a 24-70 but fit very nicely on the D700

HSM - Very fast and quiet...as advertised

Bokeh - Very nice oof area. Bokeh is excellent!

All in all a great lens and a great alternative to the Nikon 24-70.
