Strengths:    Build quality and image quality from f2.8 on.
Very cheap, but test it before you buy it to get a good sample.

Weaknesses:    Non-AF for those who need it.
F2 a tad soft and not enough contrast

Bottom Line:   
Old goody which shows why the older products do tend to break less often. Perfect all metal build. Smooth zoom ring which makes it pretty much fun to use a non-AF lens.
The image quality is very good. A bit less contrast at f/2 in comparison to "newer" lenses, but already at f2.8 you get sharpness and contrast. That is on a D300 as I have tested it.
So if you liked the 50mm primes in the past on film you are likely to love this one too.
