8 out of 10 points and recommendedVery sharp; large lens; easy to focus manuallyvery heavy; shallow dof at low aperture
I bought it used and am very happy with it.reviewed August 16th, 2012 (purchased for $400)
In a single day I took over 600 pictures with this lens. It does tend to get heavy by the end of the day and sometimes the auto focus is a bit slow
However, the pictures were super sharp, very pleasing perspective and the lens is a delight to work with.
