High price in Europe as always.
Nice picture quality and a joy to use except for that the autofocus stops working occasionally - kind falls asleep. Turning the camera (7D) off/on doesn't help and the lens has to be removed from the camera body to wake up again, then it works excellent till the next time it falls asleep....and no it's not on manual focus.
It's fairly sharp and I feel it gives nice colours and i loved it on my 7D. However I'm returning my copy due to the focus issues. Maybe the upcoming firmware fix for the 7D will fix the issue?
I would definately recommend it if it hadn't been for the focus issue.
