Review Date: Jul 20, 2009 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

Pros: sharp, light, fast focus in good light
sometimes misses focus

I bought this lens a week ago. Did some outdoor shots, and some studio shots as well. I don`t know if its just my lens or its a general problem, but sometimes the lens misses focus in moderate to low light, or i am moving just a bit and that is the cause off misfocus, but it didn`t happen to me with other lenses.(need to test this out on a tripod, but it happened quite often. :|

When it does get the focus right, (most of the shots Smile ) then this lens is incredibly sharp, even on 2.8. A friend of mine has a sigma 24-70 2.8 the older one, and that is just horrible on 2.8, but this lens is surprisingly sharp. I use it on a DX so i get sharper edges then an FX so i wont talk about that.

Build is nice, not to light, not to heavy, seems solid, i like the texture and the material on the focus and zoom rings.

I don`t have any similar lenses to compare it to so this review is just based what i think about the lens. I am always aiming for the highest quality images, compared to the kit lens its just heaven if you are on a tight budget. Even the occasional misfocus does not bather me for this price.
