Pros: 1. Good for tight spaces and decent zoom range. A good walk around lens. 2. Weather sealed 3. Nice hood lens 4. Sharpness is decent 5. IS works really well 6. Auto focus is fast
Cons:
1. Price is high 2. Heavy 3. F4

This is a really good general all purpose lens. I bought this lens in 2008, so far it has been my favorite lens. I don't have to change lens too frequent as this can introduce dust to the camera. The image stablization system worked really well. The manual focus ring is really smooth. The auto focus is really quick and accurate. The sharpness is not as sharp as prime 85 1.2 LII, but the sharpness is decent. The weight of this lens is still quit heavy for an F4. I really enjoy using this lens because of its wide range and decent zoom. I highly recommend this lens over other lens.

Pros: 1.Very nice background blurr. 2.Very sharp 3.Good color 4.Build quality is excellent 5.Good low light
Cons:
1. Very expensive 2. Heavy 3. Very difficult to get correct focus. 50/50 pictures results.

I purchased this lens to take my baby boy. So far, this is one of the best lens I have seen.
Pros: Very sharp pictures quality. Nice background blurr. The build quality is tough. The manual focus ring is by far the best I have seen. This is an excellent lens for low light.

Cons: This is a really sharp lens but some pictures taken can be blurry. Very challengeing to get clear pictures all of the time. The price is just too expensive for consumer to purchase. Can be very heavy when used for long hike. Slow autofocus, not as fast as my 24-105 is L, but manageable if taken still photo. The range of 85m is very difficult to use in tight spaces, but I knew this when I bought this lens as this is not the lens fault.

Overall, this is a super lens and need to spend a lot of time to play with the focus.
