Review Date: May 15, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

Pros: Very good sharpness! Excellent contrast! It's weight and size is just about right
No hood A little CA Slow AF

I just bought this lense some time ago with an 100/2.8 macro ( I'm a collector Wink ). I didn't use it at all first, didnt even test it actually, until with my friend by mixing it up with the 28 1.8. I was amazed by the contrast and overall image quality ( despite the little amout of CA it has ). I really never have liked shooting color pictures, because of bad contrast ( 70-200 4L and 24-70 2.8 EX especially imo ), but this one is a real diamond.

About the build. Well ... It's as good as any other lense from canon, no need to brag about anything.

I do alot of street photography and this lense performs quite good. The slow AF limits getting great shots though ( I don't actually know if it focuses slow, but it seems like it doesn't really focus on the point i want it to? )
