Review Date: Aug 8, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Bokeh,Sharp images, colour cast, build quality, f2.8, everything
Cons:
None what so ever

Wow 3 days after buying and i am still saying wow when i see the results, brought used on ebay have to say this is a fantastic lens for so many different subjects, i keep finding new ways to photograph and never want to put my camera down.
One down side i now think i should sell my zooms to get all primes.

Review Date: Jul 14, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 8 

 
Pros: BUILD QUALITY, BOKEH, SIZE, WEIGHT OK FOR HAND HELD, QUALITY OF PICS WITH A 1.4X CONVERTER
Cons:
SLIGHT YELLOW TINGE TO COLOUR CAST SPECTRUM, MACRO NOT A TRUE MACRO AND MISSLEADING TO SOME MAYBE, COATING ON LENS PEELS AND MARKS TOO EASILY.

Nice lens with a good optical performance although the colour cast shows a yellow tinge.
Coating of lens is so thin it peels and marks far to easily along with the hood.
lens cap is the worst i have ever used and has already broke a pl-c
if you want a lens at a fair price with an above average picture quality and can live with the little higgles mentioned then go for it, i will be keeping mine mainly because nobody will want it second hand with the coating peeling.
