Review Date: Dec 28, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

Pros:
Cons:

Just bought this off ebay for 130 boxed and mint. Using it on my 1Dn mk II and ok it's a little slower than the ultrasonics but this thing is tack sharp wide open F2.8. I havn't talked my self in to L lenses yet having just up graded to the 1 Dn mk II from a 20d. THe 1dnmkII i paid 1500 brand new just before xmas. Tried all the sigmas and tokinas at this range and fstop none of them sharp as this wide open. Fantastic value lens . If you cant find used one just go and buy it new you wont regret it.

Pros: light sharp
Cons:
F 5.6 crap

I bought this 5 years ago, then i bought a fuji 6900 so my slr was put in the shed for about 4 years, till this xmas when i got a 20 D so i had to go and dig out my eos stuff from the shed took bloody ages, big shed stuffed full.
stuck this lens on and i was shooting away at f5.6, crap, back in the shed, then this week we were getting the birds back in the garden and i couldn,t reach them with my sigma 28-70mm f2.8 so back in the shed for this lens.
tried differant f stops f8 upwards i was getting fantastic results all hand held. Just whack the iso up to get the shutter speed very little noise on the 20 D i just shoot away at iso 800 and 1600. I cant fault this lens now, if this is the result i get with this lens i gota get an L series lens. you want proof email me for photos , Dave
