Review Date: Jan 17, 2009 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $700.00 | Rating: 10 

Pros: Fast and Razor Sharp. Great color and contrast. Excellent build and feel
Cons:
a bit heavy but it is a 2.8 zoom.

I am using this lens on my Canon 50D and I swear itís like they were made for each other. The focus is super fast and accurate. The images are crisp and clean. The lens balances very well with the 50D and grip attached. The lens collar is very nice. Itís an internal movement lens that is built very well. This is truly a professional piece of photo equipment.

Pros: Light Fast Sharp Great Color

This lens loves my 5D. Perfect for head shots. If all you have are zooms this is the perfect 1st prime to cut your teeth on.

Review Date: Jan 15, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $700.00 | Rating: 10 

Pros: Compact, light weight, Sharp @ 2.8, internal zoom/focus
Cons:
None for me

I got this lens to shoot my kids basketball games. I was thinking of getting the Canon 70-200 2.8L for my new 40D till I found out about this lens. I had shot a couple of games with my 24-105 and found that zoom range just under what I needed for next to the court shooting so the 50-150 range would work nicely. I ordered the lens from B&H and tried it at a game the day after it arrived. I was very pleased with the results and found this lens a keeper.

The lens is light weight, compact and has a solid build. The focus is fast and sharp. I have been very pleased with the results and it is a good match with the 40D. The lens is nice and sharp at 2.8 and produces good color and contrast. I shoot with the BG-E2 grip and for me the weight and balance are perfect.

The internal focus and zoom design is great! The size of the lens does not change during zoom or focus. IS would be nice but I am sure would add to the size and weight of this compact lens.
