Review Date: May 8, 2004 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,500.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Well built, great range, reasonably sharp up to near the corners
Cons:
Sharpness seems to vary from example to example based on reviews.

I have been very happy with this lense on the 1ds. I should add that I do not shoot wide open. Yes, there is some barrel distortion at the wide end, that doesn't bother me. I find the lense to be acceptably sharp right up to within 20 or 30 pixels from the corners: the actual corners are quite soft. There is occasional CA near the corners as well, not enough to bother me. The lense is solid, well built and covers a zoom range that I enjoy.
