It's a waste if you plan to stop it down. It's strength is that it's the sharpest lens Nikon makes at f2.0 which is reportedly it's peak sharpness. So I guess that would be a nice portrait feature. At f1.4, it's the same as the others. Stopped down, it's not any better. So if you need to or plan to stop it down past 2.8 or so, you're wasting money.

And I'm not ashamed to say I read all this on the internet...

Let me guess, the person who wrote this has the initials KR?

He's one of them...

That was all to say, take my comments with a grain of salt. I see that actual owners (to my surprise) of the lens have commented in. Their comments make me want one!
