Great while it lasted

Summary: I bought this lens in January and took it out a few times and had a great time shooting with it. Then in March I took it out to shoot some elk I came across in Montana and a lens just inside the outermost piece of glass fell off. Now I need to have it fixed. Could be a defect limited to mine as the most jarring it had was inside my case while driving down the highway. Would buy again based on the great picture clarity I got with it.
Slow lens leaves your photos in the shadows of greatness

Summary: I have now owned this lens for a while and have come back to upgrade my review but leave some drawbacks so other shoppers will be aware. The good points of this lens, that made me keep it instead of return it, are the unusual qualities it has to go macro on the one end of the range, and zoom to a virtual wide angle at the other extreme. These two views broaden my ability as photographer in ways that none of my other lenses do. I hardly ever use the middle of this lens.
