Review Date: Nov 4, 2004 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $650.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Fast AF, sharp (even wide open), FTM, nice colors
Cons:
Little heavy, not as fast as Canon's L USM lenses (pretty close though!)

I bought a used copy of the lens from a fellow FM member and have pretty much fallen in love with it. Even in lower light and with my 300d, it still could do a decent job with sportsbike photos...definitely impressed with that! I found that with the 300d + battery grip, the balance is quite nice...I usually keep the tripod collar in my bag...this also lightens up the lens a little.

This week, I'm going to try it out at a local hockey arena and see how it performs there, but I fell confident that it will work great!
