Pros: Pin Sharp, Fast Autofocus, Versitility, Perfect For Aviation Photography If You Are Not That Close to Action.
Cons:
Price.

Owned this lens now for over a year and it has never failed to produce fantastic shots. It works well in all kinds of light although it seemingly loves the sun as on my copy the sharpness when shooting F/9 ISO 100 is second to none.

The fast autofocus and the versitility this lens supports makes everytime I shoot with it a pleasure.

The con I have put is the only thing I can think of as I wish it didnt make a massive hole in my pocket where my wallet formally was.

This lens in the past year has been on my camera 95% of the time when heading into the field and I'm sure it will stay their for the forseable future. I have only recently purchased the 24-105L IS that could take this len's place especially when I am close too the action and the 100mm is just too close.

However for anything where the aircraft are flying and I can move back this will be the lens I will be using.
