Super sweet lens sharp at all settings!
Other photographers would tell me over and over to get the Nikkor 70-200. For years I'd used the Nikkor 28-300 3.5-5.6 and was perfectly happy with it and it was great to have that super range of zoom. But after trying out the 70-200 I was hooked! It has a beautiful look and feel to the shots. I love the look it gives models…making them a bit slimmer. The focus is tack sharp at all settings and everything is clear, colors are vibrant. The bokeh (Blurring of backgrounds) is fantastic and that is the main reason I love this lens, well, and the fact that all the parallel lines of buildings etc…stay straight and are not warping as with a wide angle lens.
If you have room when shooting to back up away from your subject, use this lens! If you can't back up at a shoot then stick with the 24-70 2.8.
I recently got an inexpensive teleconverter for use with this lens to make it a 2x or 400mm zoom. Still experimenting with this and will update my findings here on DPreview.

(I need to add lenses to that list.)
