Pros: HSM, build quality, fits FF camera.
Cons:
None

Bought this gem two weeks ago and I'm loving it. The EX finish and the build quality are excellent. Pictures are crisp and sharp and minimal distortion at 12mm. The lens cap design is great because you can use the "adapter" to protect the lense since it sticks out too much and it feels safer with the "adapter" on.

Pros: Well built, excellent picture quality, great bargain!
Cons:
Noisy AF, a bit soft at F2.8

I got the new Macro version of the lense. The picture quality from this lens is real stunning! It's a little soft at F2.8 for my taste but this is not a big problem as I can change the camera setting or process the pictures with Photoshop. The built quality of this lense is superb. It feels heavy enough and balances perfectly with my 350D with battery grip.

However, this lense hunts quite a bit and the noisy AF is annoying at first (I'm used to it now).

Overall this is a great lense for the price and I highly recommend it.
