I searched the forums to see if someone asked about this specific lens for Nikon. I didn't see anything in the 1st three pages, so here it goes. I was starting to save up for the Nikon version and ran across this used one. Only have the (2) kit lenses for my D5000. Have had quite a bit of success lately with the 55-200 in lowlight situations / sports(indoor/outdoor). I am thinking with the f/2.8, I could improve some shots even more. Going to look at tonight and she is going to let me test on my Camera. Wedding photographer getting rid of some lenses. 1 year old, asking $550. New Nikon around $1,200, Tamron $749, and Sigma $849. Any thoughts from anyone that has used any of these or compared to in the past.
