So, the wife handed me $200 and said 'blow it on something'. Of course the first thing that came to mind was...glass! B&H reviews are pretty good on this lens ~ but you can never really trust those kind of reviews. Does anyone here have experience with this lens? I've got a 70-300, 18-55, 50 1.4, 28-80 ~ so I already have the range covered, but the VR is what is pulling me. It's plastic and DX (already had one DX lens die on me within 4 months), neither of which turn me on, BUT, it's got VR, lol. In your experiences, what's the good, what's the bad? I shoot landscape, animals and people mostly. My body is a D-50 hs.
