Review Date: Jul 8, 2012 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $199.99 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Tiny lens, very sharp and nice contrast. Like the "sleep mode" now that I understand it. Metal lens mount.
Cons:
Manual focus is a PITA! $25.00+ for a lens hood!

I have had a grand time using this lens, it's not much bigger than when I get my spare Canon teleconverter cap on my 40D by mistake. Focus is quick and locks on nicely.
I focus with the center spot on the 40D and then recompose. The colors and contrast are lovely, I'm not a pixel peeper and it's it's helping build my EF lens collection to jump to a full frame body. So far I really like this lens.
