    Great mini-review, Daniel, thank you. After reading this review and a few others, I ordered this lens with my D700 body (currently with a $300 savings from Nikon), so essentially this lens cost me less than $900. It won’t be my only lens (I’m getting a couple fast primes as well) but I have a feeling it’s going to be my everyday workhorse lens.

    The reviews of this lens have been very strange, they seem to either be effusive or completely on the other end. I can only think they must have some QC issues, so I would be careful to check everything out when you get one.

    This lens may the best kept secret in the Nikkor arsenal, yes, it is a compromise lens, but seems to have done about the best possible in the overlap of optical quality, performance, flexibility and range, and price.
