Great Review! I missed the boat on the B&H Black Friday price of $399. I got a used one at same price in pristine condition. Pictures are impressive with the lens, its one of the sharpest lenses that I have. My one gripe is the inner barrel has a wobble which makes a noticeable clicking sound, especially with the hood on. Did you notice this with your copy? I heard others who also noticed this. My other 3 limiteds 15, 21 and 35 macro do not have this issue at all. Anyway enjoy yours, it is a fantastic lens. Oh Yes, I agree with you that the least liked aspect of this lens is the cap/hood. The cap/hood on all of the other limiteds are much better, the 21 and 35 best of all.
