After months of umming and aaahing about this lens I finally purchased it today. I brought it home, attached it to the D200 and tried some wide open shooting. I have always been happy with my 18-70 at medium apertures but longed for greater sharpness when wide open or close to it. Well I am now happy with this.
I worriedly brought it home, having read other peoples posts about disappointing performance with there copies of the lens (some of whom found improved performances after exchanging it). I was also worried that I had spent more than 3 times the price of the 18-70 for this lens. Anyhow I love this lens. Super fast focussing, silent operation and sharp even wide open. Plus I like the bokeh very much.
Thanks everybody for there various opinions on this lens. Looking forward to playing with it more over the weekend.

P.S. (NAS strikes again. I hate to say it but not only are the images great it looks cool on the D200.....gotta love the bling)

Cheers, Ray
