10 out of 10 points and recommendedSHARP! Great contrast, nice bokeh, and the colors are stunning...A bit heavy, but what did you expect?
This lens is a serious workhorse. It spits out great looking images without too much effort. The IS works well and the AF is dead on almost every time. I wouldn't say this is a real "walk-around" lens, but I personally don't mind it.reviewed January 10th, 2007 (purchased for $1,599)
Comes with all the essentials, which is more than I can say about some other Canon lenses. Come on Canon! Include the hood and tripod collar with all your lenses like you do with this one!
9 out of 10 points and recommendedSharp when stopped, smooth bokeh, and quick AFI'd like my 1.4 to be sharp at 1.4... not have to stop down to 2+
My pros and cons say it all. One other thing is that I wish Canon included the hood with it. Overall a nice lens and I'd buy it again if I had to.reviewed January 10th, 2007 (purchased for $350)
10 out of 10 points and recommendedSharp throughout and the focus is fastnone
Can't say anything bad about this lens. The only thing it's missing is the red line around the rim... and the dust/moisture seal that comes with it.reviewed January 10th, 2007 (purchased for $370)
