    Hi,

    I just bought this lens and tried using it with my D70.
    The lens had major autofocus problems in the 200-300mm
    range. There was a lot of lens "chatter" near the focus
    point, and many times it could not focus even after 6-7 secs
    and gave up. I tested the lens pretty good lighting conditions
    outdoors. Also the camera setting was in AF-S and not AF-C.

    Anybody with similar experience ? I am thinking of returning
    this lens, but not sure if I should order another copy, or
    just move to some other lens (It sucks that there are not
    many options in this zoom range.)

    -Thanks,
    Ram.
