I have been scouring the universe in search of reviews for this Nikon Lens. Interestingly enough there are many glowing reports along with a few not so glowing reports. If anyone has any experience with this item, I would greatly appreciate any info offered. Should I purchase this lens, I am planning on marrying to my yet to buy Nikon D200 body. Just as an FYI, KEH is offering 25% off of their Black Friday equipment, ending at midnight tonight along with a full year warranty as long as the purchase is made through 12/31/2017. Not a plug for KEH, only an FYI.
