Kevin Barrett's reviews
9 out of 10 points and recommendedLightweightA wee bit noisy but not objectionable
This lens spends a considerable amount of time on my 20D. It is quite sharp and contrasty throughout it's range.reviewed October 23rd, 2005 (purchased for $350)
Bright f/2.8 and close focusing ability makes this a very flexible lens. Build quality is a bit better than one would expect in this price range.
One of the best values out there for a medium range telephoto. I am quite pleased with this lens and Highly Recommend it!
