Took it to Mexico, and it did the job. Not a pro lens, but walk around. Worth the money. Would buy it again. I use it with Nikon D300. If you can use it at f11. The sharpest apature. Sharpest images between: 80mm-130mm. Took weddign pictures, and came out great. Church pictures/ dark places a little poor even when using SF-600 flash. After all, great lens for the price!
