Pros: Extermely sharp, even wide open. Love this lens for macro, landscape, and portrait work. Light weight for this focal length so very easy to keep this lens on the camera a lot of the time. 7-year warranty is also great.
Cons:
Slower AF but not needed for macro and has not discouraged me from using it for landscape or portrait shots either.

I am really impressed with the quality of this lens. I considered the Sigma and Canon 180's but have been extremely pleased with this choice. My tripod collar is rigid and strong so I must have gotten a good copy (I know others have felt it is too flimsy). I would highly recommend this lens.
