I like many others was initially frightened by the cost and weight, but all of that went out of the window when I took my first landscape shot. The handheld result was razor sharp, had great dynamic range and the detail in the far of trees was incredible. What more can you ask for. Recommended.
The second is a bit more of a deal though - the lens seems to suffer from quite a lot of flare and ghosting. It's not anything that has stopped me using it, but it does mean I have to be very careful when I'm framing shots - even candles in a dark room can create ghost flames if you're not careful. I've seen it in other lenses but not to this extent. Comparing it to my other f2.8 lens (105mm prime), there's a big difference with respect to the number of reflections, flares and ghosted lights that you see.
As I said, it hasn't stopped me using it as my main lens for years, you just have to be a bit more careful with it than some other lenses.
Bokeh is of very good quality too .
Focus speed is lightning fast even in poor lighting conditions.
New vr is out but not sure wether vr will make difference as i've never had issues with blurry images with this lens.
A bit heavy though especially with my d750
Bokeh is to die for, built like a tank, simply the best.
Only down side is its bulk and weight (with the hood on this is a big lens!), but its the price you pay for fast pro glass.
The lens itself is amazing, I don't have words to describe it. I am using it on a Nikon D7000 previously used with N 17-55 2.8 . It becomes a 36-105 on my DX so with this 2 lens I have all I need.
If you are an occational photographer it might not be for you, the sixe and price considered. But if you are a serious photographer this is the first lens you shoud get.
Cons: It's heavy and costly.
Would I recommend it? Without hesitation. In my case, the cost was forgotten as soon as I saw the quality of my pictures.
