    hi everyone

    so recently i posted about looking for a new lens to cover about 35mm to 100mm on a dx body and now i found out an acquaintance of mine is selling a 28-105 for around 100 euro. it seems to fit the bill for me. anyone have experience of this lens? i said i'd buy it anyway so don't be too harsh ;)

    Does your body have a focus motor? If not, you'll be stuck with manual focusing.

    The 28-105 AF-D was a Lens Across America in the past.
    People got some nice and sharp photos from it. There were a lot of positive comments about it for it's sub $100 US normal price.

    I've thought about getting it's longer cousin the 28-200 for an all-in-one lens on my d600.

    Here's what the TPF Peanut Gallery did with it:

    Panoramio - Lens Across America.

    I have the 28-200 D (it's nickname is The Streetsweeper), and it works very well on a D600.

    Here's some pics I shot with the Lens Across America 28-105 AF-D, which I thought was a pretty good performing lens.
