I understand that since this range is sold with kits there are a lot of similar versions. What I am asking about is here, the version looking just like the picture he has put up as well: http://www.kenrockwell.com/nikon/2880.htm Though Ken Rockwell seems to think quite highly of it, after a few test shots I am not sure I am in agreement and if this lens is worthwhile. Though the lack of rectilinear distortion was commendable, the lens does not deliver the contrast of other lenses I have seen in the range, with a milky outcome like old lenses. The lens seems in excellent condition. Can anybody who has had and examined this lens critically add their impression, and in particular what is the real used price for this lens? Though it was quite expensive originally for a kit lens I do not think it is worth very much, but find a comparison hard to come by, as it seems to get lost in a maze of similar items.
