Pros: wide, fast, good price, sharp

mf clutch doesn't disengage completely; apparently an issue on some canon mount models

peruse my gallery of shots with this lens--it's as good a review as any:

i've been almost PERFECTLY happy with this lens.. the only issue is the slightly-still-engaged MF clutch when in AF position, and that's only noticeable when close-focussed. from what i see on line it appears to only be an issue with the canon mounts, since the direction of the focus helix is opposite the nikon version.

other than that, the zoom and focus rings have good smooth travel and the lens is very good optically. i actually LIKE flare, so it's no con for me.
