I've seen comments from about 10 people who own this lens, including me.


Personally, I think it's a great lens. Very little CA/PF, Nice resolution/IQ, Decent weight, non rotating front element & etc.

Of course, there are some who don't care for it. But, no lens can be all things to all people.

Cheers,

Ed

I never really expected to...but I am wanting this lens more than the 60-250.

I just wish the price was a bit lower (but, that could be said about almost any lens we want, right?)
