    "5 stars...good len...I recommend using auto-focus fine tune....If you compared this to the 5 or 600 nikon prime which is almost the cost of a car this lens isn't as sharp, but it's 1399 not 13000.00... Buy it you will be happy with it The only reason it got 4 starts is from the weight and the inability to use the 5.6 on a crop body and I have had 2 copies and it'sn't a defective lens...do your research on this lens."
