Pros: Sharp, IS, Solid, Silent
Cons:
A Little CA wide open at 17mm,

So, I've had this lens for all of 45 minutes, and I think it's great. I got it for a walk around lens for my trip to Italy at the end of the month, and I need (wanted really badly) the IS.

The IS is excellent. Sharp shots at 55mm 1/5s, f/4 I usually have trouble getting sharp shots at 1/focal-length, so this is a BOON for me. (Too much caffeine I guess.)

It's heavy, but solid. For me the heavyness is a positive as it helps with steadiness.

So far there's no dust in it! Smile
