Works like a champ

 

Looks really well if you supplement with a flash, preferable diffused.. (my sb-700 has those).. Didnt' look so well with led ring-light, but that was more the light I used... I may continue to keep , though I now wish for the 105mm f/2.8. It's a great...

Sharp, fast focus, accurate, auto-focus works well with macro of butterflies that are not moving, light, rugged. good color. f3.5 is adequate for many situations involving sun light

not a FX lens for full frame, will vignette and not a good match with D800 if FX mode (which I should have payed attention to prior to ordering that bundle)

Awesome portrait lens

 

I use with a D4 body. I waited a year and finally got this lens. I usually have my camera set on manual, but on auto it has extremely fast focus! Depth of field is also excellent. If you can afford it, get it!

This is an awesome lens!!

 

I have no complaints with this lens! I use it was more than my 50mm. And I love my 50! It's not as good as the 50mm in low light but I haven't found that to be a big problem. I just bump up the ISO a little bit more.
