Review Date: Oct 26, 2009 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Extermly shapr, Easy to carry all the day, AF is quick and reliable even for non macro pictures, Bokeh,
Cons:
Hood is to big, IS has no panning mode

After reading the first news, I was actualy expesting price over 1000Eur.
Tripod collar is not included, but you know this before you buy this lens (as well as the filter size).
IS is perfect for common shooting, in macro distances you will need times over 1/200sec even vith IS on.
Lack of panning mode results in suden moves in movie mode (for video turn the IS off).
The IQ is wonderfull! On my 5DmkII this is the sharpest lens I've used. This is perhaps not a lens I will use on my 450 to much. Croop sensor cut off a lot of quality.
Feels not as solid as most of L lenses, but its nice to have such a easy to carry around lens.
