i have the A16N II. Been getting f-- at times. Overall,i'd rate it a wonderful piece to have and am satisfied with the performance .Guess the cons are acceptable for lens at this price.

though focus errors are a quite common for all 3rd party lenses...(even sigma/tokina/cosina etc)...so get your copy focus tested at the shop before buying

after all you ARE paying only a fraction of the Nikkor variant..i'd rather pay thousands less and spend a little time doing some focus tests..the quality is superb with a good copy

the newer version is probably dedicated only to D40/x/60..

the older version is still better/faster and its no longer in production (logically)..
