Review Date: Oct 18, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $409.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Very strong build, Can't beat it price, Good optical performace
Cons:
Not great wide open, focus isn't HSM

I might be lucky that I got a good copy the first time through, but I am very satisfied. There is nothing that can combine the qualities of this lens, so if you need it, get it. The motor isn't HSM quality, but I find that it focuses plenty fast enough. This isn't a sports lens. Focus ring is super smooth and feels fantastic. I would certainly call this lens usable after sharpening wide open, and very good from that point on. The lens is made out of some weird textured plastic that feels odd to the touch, but that's probably just me. I would buy this again without hesitation.

Pros: Super build quality, great images straight out of camera-little need for pp
Cons:
ever so soft wide open

I am a huge fan of this lens. Even though it is a touch soft wide open, it sharpens up nicely. The feel oozes quality. The only thing that bothers me a little is the fact that the lens starts at 70 and you zoom to 24. But I'm getting used to it. I wouldn't hesitate to buy one again.
