Jon, Bridlington Professional Wedding Photographer

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Excellent build quality and very good image quality. I do get some vignetting on my D700 but in my line of work (weddings/portraits) it really doesn't matter. The centre is very sharp with good contrast and good colours. The VR is incredible, allowing me to handhold shots at a much slower shutter speed than I could ever have done without it. The bokeh is lovely and smooth, you just don't get this with consumer lenses.
Bad points:
Vignetting/corner sharpness wide open - Might be a problem for some people on full frame.
The price - it's expensive considering the corner performance.
The weight - this might put some people off. You couldn't carry it around all day comfortably.

Tony, Manchester

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Superb quality lens, perhaps the sharpest Nikon lens I've used. An expensive addition to your kit but worth every penny
Bad points:
A little on the heavy side but considering the results, I could forgive it even if the lens was twice the weight
