I am using this on a DX camera, the Nikon D7100. No I don't see this as a "waste" of glass on the DX body. I already own a 10-24mm lens so not having the wide end as wide as it would be on a FX isn't an issue. Yes I could have used the money to purchase a few prime lenses to cover the focal lengths that this 24-70 covers, but I'd rather not be changing lenses often. Having the battery grip for your DX body would be beneficial to create more weight balance between the body and lens.
This lens is what I was looking for. It has a great focal range and will serve my needs very well. Before purchasing this lens, consider what you will be using it for.
Images provided are sharp on my end, however I am not sure how well they will show up on Amazon.
I use this lens with D7000/D7100, and it works great. The image quality is sharp, very sharp. I feel more confident with this baby and works great in low light conditions. My prime lenses barely get used during event photography now.
The only thing I do not like about the lens is the weight. It is heavy. My wrists do hurt after a long period of time.
Also, this is worth mentioning - I rented the Sigma version of this lens and none of my photos autofocused correctly, which I didn't realize until afterwards. I took the plunge and bought this lens, hoping I wouldnt have that problem here and I haven't. I'd definitely get the Nikon version over the Sigma.
First, a few of the things I don't like:
It's huge and heavy. About an inch longer than my 28-300mm lens. It's also pretty heavy. I dislike the fact that the zoom ring is in in the back, close to the camera body. The focus ring and zoom ring should be switched. Everyone that picks it up grabs the focus ring and tries to zoom with it. Bad design. Also, for this price I'd expect image stabilization built in. It would really help with videos.
Now, to the reason I love the lens and I'm glad I bought it:
The focus is super fast. The pics are very sharp at 2.8. I had 2 Tamron's before this. One was the old version and one was the newer version with image stabilization. Both were very soft at 2.8. I resigned myself to stopping it down to at least 3.5 or 4 to take a sharp pic. Only used 2.8 if I absolutely had to. With the Nikon, it focuses well and takes sharp pics at 2.8. I took this on a cruise recently and took hundreds of amazing pics at 2.8.
The lens isn't perfect, and it is expensive, but it took amazing pics and I'm glad I bought it.
