Great photos, and very nice contrast and color!  What processing flow did you use.

I used this lens a lot on my d700.

I have owned this lens twice, and sold it twice.  I tried it with the D600.  It was decent but unremarkable compared to the used 28-105 that I also own.  Fast autofocusing, if that's important to you.  Can't beat the light weight--almost made the D600 feel like my old D40.

I have owned 2 copies as well, almost identical IQ wise.  On the D800 it is certainly not as sharp as primes or the f4 or f2.8 zooms, and CA and edges arworse as well, but it really is a nice light lens, I agree - a lot like a D40 again!
