So I was really excited to try out the lens but to my disappointment, it does not auto focus. Not only that but it does not work in any other mode except Manual. I called up Adorama but they're already closed so I emailed them as well. Anyway, I was trying it out in manual mode and it produces a nice sharp image, and I like the bokeh! But I just can't hold the lens while manually adjusting the focal length and focus clearly without exhausting my puny hands without a monopod. If it was auto focusing it would have made it easier. Anyone try this lens out? I have a D80. Every where I've read, the lens is suppose to autofocus.
