Having used the 50mm 1.8D and the 18-105, I think this lens is slightly slower than that. It was not a problem taking a picture of an F-16 so it could not be that slow It is not the fastest lens I have but it is certainly acceptable. When the focus locks on it is crystal clear and with the VRII, all the shots at the show were hand held. Did not use a tripod or a monopod.
The images in the view finder are easy to see. The day of the air show started off cloudy and the lens did well at 300mm.
I am not a professional so for those of you that are you may have a more critical review than I. This lens fits the slot in my bag perfectly and will remain for many years to come. The ability to zoom out to the 55mm on a DX will make this lens my go to in many situations.
