Review Date: Dec 17, 2004 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 4 

 
Pros: Light, great price
Cons:
slow, poorly constructed, image quality so-so. No FTM Slow focus

I had this since I originally bought in to the APS SLR format. The lens works fine for occasional shooting with the EOS IX. However when used on the 35mm or even digital SLR it became apparent that the lens lacks sharpness and contrast. Can't FTM, and it hunts when it's trying to focus.

I have tried this lens on EOS 3, EOS 7e, EOS IX, and 20D they all exhibit the same issue.

However I think it might be a great starter lens, because of the price point. But you will soon grow out of this lens faster than you know it.
