I find this to be a surprising lens which when used wisely is a profound bargain (I paid less than $70 on Ebay for one). What I mean by this is that you shouldn't expect to bag great shots at in in-door basketball game, but when I have taken it to the zoo it and used it in good light, it has performed well even wide open. I'm looking through my online galleries to find an example and will try to post one up when I do.
There are only two things that I would fault with the lens, very slow focus and I find the bokeh to be a little raspy or rough. Other than that I plan on keeping mine even though I already own the 80-200mm af-s. The 70-210 is a LOT lighter and I took it with me to Mount Rainier when weight mattered!
Here is a shot that is probably wide open (f/5.6 at maximum zoom).
Buy one, they're cheap and will do a good job!

This is a one-touch/push-pull zoom and it suffers from a bit of lens creep when pulled out to 210mm and aimed skyward, but I've seen worse.
While it can't offer the same IQ as my 70-200 VR, it does well for its price and is a heck of a lot more portable.

The 70-210 was the most "ordinary" lens I can ever remember owning (aside from the odd atrocious Sigma that stop-gapped my lens lineup from time to time), and calling it "ordinary" is being very, very kind to it.
