comment:I couldn't say enough good things about this lens. It is absolutely fantastic. It looks very unassuming for its speed and performance. This is easily the one lens I would always keep. I have used alot of lenses, and I can say this is my absolute favorite. It is so sharp, even at f2, and the bokeh is unrivalled. I wouldn't change a single thing about it.
