Pros: Solid as a rock, sharpest zoom lens I have ever used, "feels" great on my S2 Pro
Cons:
Nada

I don't normally write reviews, but this lens is so good that I simply had to let everybody know. It is rare that I purchase a piece of equipment that so blatantly surpasses my expectations that I am at a loss for words. This lens is so much better than everything in its class that it is hard to express. Sharpness and color accuracy to die for, lightning fast AF, amazing feel, ROCK solid construction that is perfectly balanced on the S2, etc. I could go on and on. It puts the Canon 28-70 and 24-70 L lenses to shame in all respects (I know - I've owned them both!!). Extremely sharp at f/2.8, and even better stopped down to f/4. You will not regret this purchase - sure it costs some serious dough, but it is worth every penny. The best all-around zoom lens I've ever owned, period. Believe what everyone says, this lens is a gem among gems.
