This lens is excellent i have had mine for over 8 years no issues tack sharp fast af... Worth buying if you can get it used .

I have used this lens for years as my primary go-to lens.  It's fast, quiet, sharp, and is extremely dependable.  The bummer is it recently stopped focusing and needs to visit the shop.  Nikon has stiff-armed me as they say they don't support this lens any longer but suggested I visit a local shop.  So I am super bummed and need to figure out where to get it serviced.
