Off to Florida tomorrow! (a big deal considering I'm from the UK and therefore it's twice as much ) I rented out the above lens for the trip and took out for a spin last night. Overall I'm impressed so far, aside from the fact it's not the fastest at focusing, my 18-55mm (which came with the D50 and costs around £100 is faster, and to be honest that lens is incredible for the price). I don't know if this is due to the fact it's a rental and perhaps the motor isn't at its best. For a lens with a starting price of over £1000 I was at least expecting the focus to be a bit faster.
