Essentially Perfect
2

Have been using this lens for about 2 weeks. On the D800 it's is proving every bit as good as the exotic Nikkor 300 mm F/2.8 and better than the Nikkor 105 mm macro (itself an excellent optic). This quality holds up wide open and into the corners. It's very heavy and big but there's no avoiding that at this aperture and FL. Build appears flawless. Expensive but worth every cent if your objective is image quality. I'm not often a cropper but even some extreme test crops have taken me aback at how fantastic they look.
