"SOLID SOLID SOLID Lens that does what you ask of it"4.5 starson by AlligamII
Pros: Excellent stabilzation in low light situations, great focusing speed, unobtrusive VR system.
Cons: None detected to date.
Summary: Unfortunately, two previous reviewers are wronf about the format, this is an FX lens that works well on my DX camera. I am taking shots that I could never have accomplished before -- 300mm at 1/30 second across a poorly lighted indoor pool is just the beginning. I have experienced NO LENS CREEP with a smooth yet firm zoom. I especially like that I can true up my focus without changing to manual mode. This is the best zoom lense for the money -- hands down.
