    Cons: Ugly, complex mustache distortion at 28mm. Warm color cast. Squeaky motor after 10 years. Heavy and clumsy.

    Pros: Extremely fast AF. Beautiful rendering. ACR distortion profiles are effective.

    Summary: Probably not as good as the newer 24-70 lenses, but still great. Fantastic on the D810.

    Cons: Heavy lens. Too heavy for carriyng on trekkings trips. Limited range 28mm-70mm. I would have prefer 24 to 90mm.

    Summary: My best lens for shooting family events.
