137_small
Review Date: Jun 9, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $460.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Very sharp Great bokeh wide open Decent macro range Great build quality! Price for what you're getting
Cons:
Hunts sometimes indoors

Just picked this up, I was actually deciding on getting two lenses, the Canon 100mm Macro, and the Tamron 17-50, however my friend recommended this to me and I got a good deal on it, so I went with this instead and I couldn't be happier!
I'm using this on my XTi and I've gotten great shots, I also have a 50mm 1.8 and the sharpness of this lens rivals the 50mm, of course it's nowhere near as versatile for indoor or low lighting though.

I have some sample shots up at www.mathewchan.com/xti/gardens, see for yourself, can't go wrong with this one.
