Thom's Mini Review: This lens shows its age, particularly on the 16mp+ DSLRs. Chromatic aberration is high and edge sharpness low on FX bodies. The lens was originally designed in anticipation of the D1, which needed a wide angle prime. On DX, the lens works decently, but it's expensive and large. Just not the right choice for anybody these days. Most of the wide angle zooms, DX and FX, out-perform this lens at the equivalent settings. Not Recommended
