Beautiful, like new lens with little to no pincushioning. This has been my favorite lens for the past three years. I just bought a 28-200mm from a fellow astromarter, and I need to unload this one to pay the piper. I found this zoom range ideal for film SLR; I now own a D70, and a little more wide angle range is nice; that is why I got the 28mm. But I will have to say, the construction of this lens is far superior to the newer Nikon lenses. It is heavy, and focuses internally, which means the front of the lens does not turn (good for polarizing filters) and the lens stays the same size throughout its focusing range. I will miss this lens, but I don't anticipate using it much anymore.
