Pros: Very well built. f/2.8 does quite well in low light.
Cons:
Heavy. Focus a little slow, not bad but slower than my USM lenses.

I bought this lens new.

I really like this lens. It's very well made but It's heavy. I've had good results in low lighting at 2.8. It focuses a little slow but it does focus well. The focus clutch mechanisim is tricky.

You can shift to manual focus with the clutch but unless you turn off the AF switch it will continue to try to focus while you're doing it manually. Sometimes this is good when you want to help the AF but sometimes it can mess up what you're trying to do. If you want just MF you need to turn the switch off and pull the clutch, two steps. That's about the only fault that bothers me.
