This Nikon lens has excellent depth of field control bringing an F/22 focus range. Even you're out of focus (i.e. background elements) come out sharper and richer with detail which makes for some powerful creativity shots. Even higher end telephoto lenses don't hold a candle to this lenses quality reproduction.
Its fast speed allows for faster and crisper captures in low light settings like shooting indoors. This also benefits you in the high speed action shots like in sporting events. This lens is great for portrait and other general photography.
