Anybody have anything good or bad to say about this lens, particularly in regards to close/medium range portrait/glamour/headshot type work?

Many thanks in advance.

Hello Shannon...

I've tested this lens. I wasn't satisfied with the results: In my eye, the negs were soft, and contrast could have been better. But that is a purely subjective opinion. I much prefer the 28-105 or the 24-120 (NOT the VR version). Some people will totally disagree with me because they didn't get the results I did. The best way is to borrow the lens, rent the lens, or buy it with an option to return in three days, and test the lens in your style, under your lights, in your studio.

I visited your website. Your work is superb. You have a wonderful eye for unusual framing. Just wonderful work, period.

Be well...

Got it in place of the kit lens for the D70. It is the ONLY lens I need and I love it! I can get a head shot and 2 seconds later have framed a full length. I do not believe I have ever missed a shot with it due to focal length limitations. It is shorter than the kit lens and the same price at B&H.
Here is one with it:
