Review Date: Jan 31, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 8 

 
Pros: images tack sharp, even at f2.8. light-weight. reasonably fast AF, even tho no USM. relatively low-cost for a prime.
Cons:
SF features a hit-or-miss affair, depending on lighting conditions. the MF ring is a joke, forget abt using MF or even the distance scale. lens hood shld be included for this product. a flimsy looking lens' construction - DO NOT drop it! =)

just picked up a 2nd-hand copy of this lens. images are tack sharp, even at f2.8. if u can find this on the used mkt, BUY IT! i haven't figure out how to use the soft-focus settings properly. think, for the time being, will use it as an outdoor portrait lens. focal length is too long for studio.
