I've only used this lens a couple times. Its focusing feels and sounds identical to my other SDM lenses (4 other SDM lenses including another 50-135). I've never had any SDM issues with any lens.

Whatever an SDM failure feels or sounds like, this lens doesn't :-)

I'll try to take some sample shots with it in next couple days. The two times I've used it were in poor conditions that didn't result in anything showing lens performance (cold, foggy, kids soccer game and poorly lit children's Christmas presentation, both handheld).

How much experience do you have using this copy? Asking because of the rare but potential issues with SDM and wanting to know if it performs optically as good as it should.

You wouldn't want to post a shot from the "poorly lit children's Christmas presentation" would you? This is exactly the situation I have had a lot of recently that makes me want to get the 50-135 (and led me to look at your post).

Hi all, sorry for the delays in getting back to any pm's or thread requests. Had been in and out of town over past couple weeks, behind on pretty much everything. The lens has been sold. Thanks to all who expressed interest.
