7 out of 10 points and recommendedA winner in the gardenWas not quite as good as some other lenses I have brought for the same price
Overall the lens has been great over the first week but it just hasn't wowed me yet. I am taking it away in the coming months so perhaps this view will change.reviewed March 2nd, 2010 (purchased for $1,500)
A wonderful sharp copy - it just seems like a "business as usual lens" to me - not that th that's ats a bad thing - on the whole I will use it again and again I have no doubt!
Got it at bargain price in an auction (http://www.procameralenses.co.uk) - would recommend if your in the uk, but really I wish I had brought it new as I have seen it at just the equivilent of $130 more :(
