Review Date: Mar 8, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $319.99 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Awesome clarity and focus, nice DOF, great range on a DSLR, great for portraits and low-light work. A must for every camera bag!
Cons:
The fact that Canon doesn't make more affordable lenses like this!!!

I put off this purchase for a while. Now that I have it, I wish I'd bought it a long time ago!

What an awesome lens this is! All the reviews on here are accurate (thanks for posting them). I've used it on a 10D and 30D with great results. I shoot a lot of low-light, no-flash action photography and needed something in this range (136mm with DSLR's extender) with a large aperture. My Sigma 70-200 EX is on 80% of the time, but at 2.8 I can't always get the shots I want in those low-light - no-flash situations. I dream of a 70-200 f/1.8!!! What a jewel that would be!

Buy one!
