Pros: Price, sharpness, VC, build quality
Cons:
vignetting, poor QC

I was really worried about buying a third party lens for my 6D so I waited more than a year and read a ton of reviews before getting this lens. I was seduced by the VC and the price

Well my fear became reality: I simply could not get it to work properly. I constantly got the error 01 - bad communication with lens. It always happened when I changed aperture and you could hear a crunchy noise.

In the end I had to send it back - there was just no way the message would go away and I suspect it was the aperture blades.

I have never seen the message since nor prior to buying this lens so I guess it was a quality issue. Back with Canon again!
