I apologize for not having time for a more in-depth review. Maybe I can get back and add later.reviewed December 22nd, 2006
This lens is super sharp. Build quality and solid feel are excellent. The vibration resistance is a plus, but even without it, I would recommend the lens. Operation is smooth and auto-focus works well and quickly.
But don't drop it! I dropped my first one about two feet to asphalt. The repair cost would have been so high that I just bought another one.
If you're interested in this type of lens and can handle the weight, you won't be disappointed.
