Pros: Sharp images, solid build, smooth operation
Cons:
Heavy

I have been after this lens for several years now and finally took the plunge. It is a fantastic lens.

It has fantastic IQ with great constrast. It does weigh a bit more than other lenses I own however it is not bad at all even when shooting most of the day handheld.

This lens is built like a tank -- feels very solid in your hand. Fast focusing and sharp throughout the entire zoom range.

Great for portraits with f/2.8 providing shallow depth of field and good bokeh.

I recommend this lens highly for those with a middle zoom range to fill or anyone looking to upgrade their middle range to L quality.
