9 out of 10 points and recommendedSharp - good optical performance
Image sharpness limited by camera pixel density - sharp as. I'm using this with an eos 350D. I'm very happy with this lens. I'd challenge this site to review it in comparison to the Canon 100/2.8 macro.reviewed January 9th, 2006 (purchased for $780)
9 out of 10 points and recommendedSharp. Great bokehHeavy - to be expected at f2.8 zoom
First lens after buying eos 350D with kit 18-55 + 90 -300. Took a little while to adjust to the AF/MF mechanism. Once sorted, this lens justified my move to the dSLR realm after owning an Oly C8080WZ - which was a kick ass for it's class as a prosumer camera (esp. for tripod mounted landscape stuff) before it got stolen.reviewed January 9th, 2006
This lens has a slightly noisy mechanism, which doesn't affect wildlife except for the fury varieties. It is very sharp and the wide apeture makes for great portait stuff.
