Review Date: Jan 18, 2004 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,475.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Incredibly fast aperture, Solidly built, Incredible image quality
Cons:
Heavy, Focusing is too slow for some applications, Camera must be on to manually focus.

I bought this lens from B&H in December of 2003 and its been my most used lens ever since. The image quality and light sucking abilities of this lens are top notch. Some people complain about the focusing being incredibly slow on this lens, but I believe its fine for what this lens was intended for.
