    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.

    I have read you new book “Behind the Landscape.” I could not “put it down” meaning that I kept at it because each photo you presented/analyzed was interesting and informative. I am trying to develop an eye for composition (both the scene and the light).

    Thank you! The examples you present and the suggestions are very helpful. Purple Mountains, McKinley River and Wonder Lake are fascinating.

    You have done it again! Another triumph.

    Your generosity to share, the clarity of thought and concise explanation thereof is brilliant. Perhaps I should also mention the beautiful photos and the talent necessary to produce them.

    Thank you, Dan.
