Pros: Great for low light situations.
Cons:
Expensive if you don't get it less than retail.

Just got this lens last night and tested it out around the house. I take a lot of pictures indoors and don't like to use flash. Until now I've used a 50mm f1.8 mkII for this. After using this lens I think the 50mm will be rarley used in the future. I got far sharper pictures and had a much more useable depth of focus. I took photos of trees against the sky and could find very little CA. I couldn't be happier with this lens, it gets results that are very close to what my 70-200 f4L gives me outdoors.
