i bought 2 because it was cheap, old new stock at just over $100 plus they are full frame lenses. Unfortunately, they are not remarkable lenses. I hate to be in situations where I got a keeper when I should have used a better lens on my D800.


I do not recommend these lenses for professional work, such as product, fashion, weddings etc.

But for family , pets, streets photos and travel light I think 28-80mm and D800 is just like an expensive lens for DSRL and much better than any pocket camera, you just need a little more PP.
