This is a great little lens. I used it for years as a much lower priced and MUCH LIGHTER alternative to the newer 70-200mm Nikons.
Since I was shooting 99.9% Landscapes and using manual focus all the time, I didn't feel I was compromising anything when it came to IQ
This is a very sharp copy and still in beautiful condition.
Look at the lettering and numbers in the pictures - all crisp and clear
Glass is pristine.
The zoom will creep a little if you point it straight up or down, but in shooting position or on a tripod - not a problem
Here's a picture taken with this lens on my D3S:
