Pros: lovely bokeh, super sharp, overall outstanding performance, VR works great
Cons:
documentation, "normal" vs "active" VR is confusing

There are only two cons to this lens.
1) It costs $$. But you get what you pay for, and in this case you might even be getting more than what you paid for. The detail is so sharp, and the operation and handling of this lens so nice, that it is hard to believe.

2) The instruction manual sucks. Normally it wouldn't matter, because how much documentation do you need for a lens? But the VR feature with the "active" and "normal" modes need a better explanation to describe the differences between these modes, and when to use them.

As for the pros, I'll keep it short: I can't really imagine a lens that performs better. I'm very satisfied.
