This is one of the best Dx lens you can get.  This is a pro series, and you pay a pro price for this glass.  Its sharpness will cut you!  Its a fast lens that's extremely well built.  Heavy, you bet--you won't forget this puppy is with you, but it won't break your back or wear you out.  Great low light/natural light.  You won't go wrong with one of these lens.
