Pros: Sharpness Already at full aperture, quality, hood

Cons: Nobody, maybe and I say maybe the lack of VR

Opinion: Fixed lens really very sharp, perhaps too much, but always gives really good photographic moments and in all areas. It also tested on the Z system with the adapter works really well, then with the stabilizer on the sensor puts a patch to the only defect that can be found. I find the snap hood very comfortable. I consider it an unbeatable lens in the value for money on today's used, also considering the fact that it has a very efficient internal casting motor, therefore also excellent for moving fauna. The design of this lens is dated but does not mean anything. It remains and will always remain a really good lens, even if it mounts on modern and future cameras. I absolutely recommend it.

Pros: Sharpness, build quality, easy handling, hood

Cons: Tripod holder

Opinion: Happy owner also of the f / 2.8 I can say that in the comparison does not disfigure, especially at short distances and taking into account the difference in price. It is handy, sturdy, with minimum focusing distance for me sufficient. I use it for the stray with D500 and sometimes with 1.4 or 1.7, but I don't like multipliers. In the shed only for very short distances with D850 (excellent results) as less intrusive than 2.8. The hood is very comfortable and sufficient. I consider it almost unbeatable in the quality / price ratio on today's used. Of course it doesn't have VR, the project is dated... but I don't care. As for the support, I replaced it with kirk at the time.

Pros: Sharpness even at full aperture, low weight, dimensions and consequently maneuverability and transport

Cons: The only flaw is the lack of stabilizer

Opinion: I have been using it for several years now and it always gives me positive experiences in any area I put it to the test (from portraiture to nature photography passing through sporting events and agility dog) what to say .. still highly recommended today for SLRs (but not only since trying it on the Z system works very well with the plus of the stabilizer on the sensor putting a patch to the only defect I found .. precisely the lack of stabilization). Last thing I find the retractable hood very comfortable

Pros: It is a fantastic lens that can be seen from the sharpness and definition and easy to handle with the right proportions.

Cons: Perhaps the only flaw is that the stabilizer is missing but it can be remedied.

Opinion: A lens that I have been using for several years and that has never disappointed me as I use it for different purposes from nature photography and among these macro photography and natural landscape or with architectural elements, or for birdlife. I have been using it for some time in combination with the Nikon D810 every now and then I add the focal multiplier tce 1.7 with which it slows down a bit but not so much ii I must say that I almost always carry the desired shot. Now that it has gone out of production I advise you to buy it because in the second-hand market you can find it between 600 and 700 euros and it is affordable. I personally will keep it anchored for a long time if not when I wish to replace it with a more professional one. The only thing I can say is that it is worth all the money spent and if it had had tropicalization it is a more open aperture I would consider it the perfect lens. The vote I give is 9.7

Pros: Everything, really everything

Cons: Nothing, nisba, the cosmic void

Opinion: Exceptional lens. Purchased new on the nikon store (last example, at least in Italy), never more apt purchase. Incredible sharpness, microcontrasto from fear to full aperture. It completely solves the sensor of the z7ii and it is not enough! He would like more. Natural colors, made unique. Af very fast on z7ii via ftz (in short, this ftz is not so bad: made comparison on d500 and same speed). In short, very happy, I would never sell it again.
