Definitely. I had one for a while. Mine wasn't great from about 150 to 300mm but AF was super fast. I ended up getting the Tamron version, used from a local shop. AF isn't quite as fast but this one is much sharper on the long end than my particular Nikon was. I still have the 80-200 and converter when I need really fast and really sharp but it's nice to have something lighter weight sometimes.
