I love this lens! Light, fast, and a great focal length - it's a smooth and efficient tool in my arsenal.reviewed October 28th, 2010 (purchased for $270)
I really hate the lens hood. I broke one of the clips the first day, and while I still keep it on, it is a constant nuisance. Yeah, it's got fringing wide open, but it's a small price to pay for such an excellent lens.
