Re: Used Nikkor 28-70 or a New Tamron 28-75?

I bought a 28-70 2.8 Nikkor used and the IQ is amazing, truly outstanding and works really well with my 80-200 2.8 AFD. The only problem is the AFS motor after shooting for about half an hour or an hour starts stuttering and cant focus. I usually switch it off and then on and starts working again. Eventually I'll send it to Nikon to have it replaced and cleaned. Even if it costs 600 bucks to service it's still better and cheaper than buying it new! Plus I get a new AFS motor!
