A big hunk of glass

  • Excerpt: I wanted a tack sharp f/2.8 midi zoom and I got one. As I suspected it was huge and on the heavy side. I am satisfied with the 17mm end but am a bit let down about the short 55mm. Despite that I bought it and may trade later if something comes out with the same specs but a little longer (70-85mm).
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy

I love it. It is the fastest auto focus lens ...

  • Summary: The only reason I selected 4 stars is the Filters are backordered and they do not have an ETA. This cost me money, more money, as I will not take out and use without the lens covered. PAST THAT. I love it. It is the fastest auto focus lens I have ever owned. Manual Focus is crisp and quick.

  • Excerpt: I use this lens all the time and love it. The wide is enough for my needs and opening up to f2.8 is awesome. If I had to pick on it for a reason it would be that I wish it could be a longer zoom closer to 105mm.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged
  • Cons: 55mm Is Too Short
