AF issue

To me 1D3 is not a big improvement from 1D2N. The AF is very inconsistant.

Prone to flair, price, needs post porcess to get desired results, hope it is a constant f4

It is a rather controversial lens. You either love it or hate it.

For me this is the lens gets to go out with me due to its compact size. Hope it is a bit lighter though.

Optically it actually produces decent pictures, at least my copy is. It might not be as sharp as some big white L lenses but for me the sharpness can be easily fixed with the help of a bit of PS.

It is maybe more prone to flair than other lenses in the same range but it can also be easily corrected by applying the CLEAR picture style file in DPP if you take pictures in raw.

Some people say it is not an L but costs like one. Maybe it is true. I agree it is indeed over priced, but it can actually produce L like pictures if you know how to use this lens well.
