Default 24-85mm question

i've pretty much decided on this(well, sorta) lense, but have seen so many mixed opinions about this lense, that i'm desperately seeking some more advice as to whether or not it will yield sharp pictures when using it with the D60.
if anyone has some input for me, i'd certainly appreciate it.

thx

Default 24-85... reply

hello hawkeye. last year i bought the canon ef 24-85 to use on my 1v.
it had excellent contrast, but it wasnt as sharp as i like. but then again im very picky when it comes to sharpness/image quality. all in all its a very good lens, but i think it will prevent the d60 from obtaining its best image quality. i think to let the d60's image sensor reach its full potential an L series lens would be the best choice, or a prime lens from canons regular line.
my regards...thomas
