Great image quality, slow autofocus

Excerpt: I use this lens mostly on a 7D2. It makes very nice images very sharp (even on the crop sensor camera), high contrast, great background blur. I like it a lot and I'm not going to be parting with it any time soon. However, the autofocus performance in low light has been something of a disappointment.
Amazing image quality, but poor focusing in low light

Excerpt: I'm using this lens on a 7D2 body. Compared to other lenses this one focuses noticeably slower and has more trouble in low light than any other lens I own, including some much much cheaper glass.
Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I haven't had a chance to exhaustively put this lens through it's paces, but I have shot a fair amount with it. First to the pros: This lens has an outstanding picture quality to it, and it appears to be very consistent. The Bokeh is quite good, and it is probably the lightest lens I own.
Pros: Consistent Output, Image stabilization, IS, Is Is Smooth Quiet, Lightweight, Low Light, Nice Bokeh, Smooth and quiet
Excerpt: I like the size, weight, and picture quality. This is not a heavy lens. My only concern is the AF ... it can travel a lot, depending on the (side of the lens) focus range setting. I have to remember to set it according to estimated distance of the object I am shooting to ensure the quickest focusing...
Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I love how sharp the image comes out. The first thing I did was taking pictures of a snail outside. Although it looks extremely sharp, even at f/10 I could get one side of a snail in focus, focusing manually.
Excerpt: The Lens is very helpful for the food photography that I do at work, but when it comes to taking photos of people for portraits, or things that are moving, the focusing comes to fall short a bit... All in all, a very good purchase; excellent image quality and wonderful bokeh.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I am a newborn photographer and love getting the tiny details on the baby with this lens. It's also perfect when photographing rings on a wedding. I just wish it were faster at getting the focus. It does have 3 options of macro that I love.
Excerpt: Great for macro video. I felt like there were so few reviews for video and macro that I wanted to share. It is tight and a tripod is wise but the drop off is great. I work heavily in food and drink and this is a perfect lens for a DSLR package.
