I bought this lens years ago it is excellent i stupidly sold it afew years ago but just recently i came across a new refurb for a great price nice to hve one in the bag ....

Fast, great portrait lens. Works very well on my D7100.

I recently purchased this lens, and I am more than pleased with it.    It is excellent for sports/action photography in most lighting conditions, even in an indoor setting.   Very fast lens, and great quality.   The constant max aperture of f/2.8 is really nice, giving a wide aperture throughout the entire focal range.  

I have owned and used this lens a lot since August of 2006.  I use it a lot for in the ring "action shots" at dog shows, indoor available light.  Currently use it with my D7100 and have had awesome results.  I am sure I use it for several thousand shots per year.  I have used it over the years on both FX (D700) and DX (D50, D80, D300, D7000, and D7100).  Always pleased with this lens.  One important comment, for years I was using it on DSLR bodies with standard or padded neck straps.  This past year I moved on to the Black Rapid straps. Not only is this much more comfortable for me to carry through a day's work, but it is also better for the Lens/camera ring connection, much less stress at that point.  I hook the black rapid to the lens via the tripod ring.  I am sure I was putting unneeded wear on the Lens' connection and the DSLR body in the past.  Here is an example of the photos, this one at 86mm on a D7100: http://cgernazio.smu...-25/i-3pfmxFb/A
