Pros: small size, build quality, super sharp, AF is pretty quick, PRICE, VALUE!
Cons:
Weird clutch for mf/af, but not a big deal at all.

I bought this lens to compliment my Canon 16-35 2.8 II L, and I'm completely blown away by this little beauty. I use it on my 5DII, and I am blown away by how sharp the corners are at any aperture compared to the zoom. The contrast and sharpness are excellent, and these are two very important factors for me.

The lens does have a little bit of CA on high contrast edges until f5.6, but they are easily fixed in LR. After f5.6, the lens shines...The CA is insignificant IMO.

The biggest surprise is the lack of vignetting of the lens. Its sweet!
