Hi folks, does anybody have this lens? I have the opportunity to get it used in superb condition for only €100. I asked the owner to send me some images from his D3 taken at several apertures, and by f/4 it's already very acceptable even in the corners and improves a lot overall by f/8.

I intend to use the lens mainly at f/8 on a D700. I'd like to ask you how do you like the IQ, including wide-open, and what about the feel of the lens (manual focusing, etc.) because I never had one in my hands.

I've had one for many years. It was quite poor on film and I find it quite poor on my D300. I hear it's OK on full-frame digital, possibly because you can fix the CA.

But it's far less sharp than my 16-85 or my 10-24. It gets usable at f/8 but that's really no recommendation. It is very small and well-made, though.
