Sample variation, differences of opinion, go figure...


I actually wouldn't rate it as high as 4.5 on mechanical quality, it doesn't have the rock solid build feel of the top of the line professional lenses. But other than that, it is pretty good.

I doubt there will be a replacement, Nikon is trying to wrap up the F-mount stuff AFAICT, so next version is likely to be in the Z mount, whether we like it or not.

The lens earns its 4.5 star due to full metal construction including magnesium alloy outer casing rather than plastic similar to the majority of the modern lens constructions and there are seals for dust and moisture protection.
