Review Date: Jul 27, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: very sharp, rich colours, light, build quality, fast&smooth AF, looks
Cons:
expensive 67mm filters and tripod ring

The two things that made me fall in love with this lens is the sharpness and the colours. Awesome.
Just get a good tripod and enjoy the amazing photographs from it.
I don't really need f/2.8 in this focal range, but IS would be great for handhelds.
I found the tripod ring to be really nice, but on a sunny day you can handhold it even with the x1.4-tc on.
I like how it can go to f/32 or f/45 (with the converter).
This lens is great in all the relevant aspects. I would buy it again - even if the other two similar offering from canon would sell at the same price - because of the weight & size.

The reach on a 20d and with the x1.4 TC is more than enough for me and when I move to full frame I think I will keep a 1.6x crop camera just for this lens.
