I have used the lens for 2 weeks. Some portrait work but mostly landscape. I found the lens to focus rapidly with little or no hunting. Photos were exceptionally sharp with great resolution. Contrast is great. Size and weight make it easy to handle. I like the collapsable hood and the fact that it is stored on the lens. The price I paid was exceptionally good with two of these lenses still available on ebay. I would recommend this lens to anyone in need of this focal length.
