Hi al

I had the screw version back in film days and liked it...

Digital may be a different ballgame; any one have opinion ot with FX and also whether the BIM version is a step backwards. (I seem to remember comments of stay away from the BIM version but not sure if that was talking about the 18-50 f2.8 model)

comments appreciated..esp if D600 related.

I have looked at the Sigma 24-70 f2.8 .. they do two different types of drive too !

There is a very fine line between 'hobby' and 'mental illness.' :'!':

The BIM version is awful for focus accuracy and speed.  Hunts a lot in low light.  The one I had briefly also would not focus in live view.  It would try, but never find focus.  Very strange.  The non-bim version I have now is quite good.  Focus speed is snappy.
