price paid:
positive:Very nice and well built, Tack sharp from edge to edge. No distortion
negative:minimum focus distance of 1 meter
comment:I bought this lens 9 years ago for 1.000 Guilders (453 Euro's) and I never used it on my Dynax film camera's. I got my 7D and then I started to use it and it is excellent!
I almost sold it 2 weeks ago, but thank God I changed my mind :-) It works very well in low light situations. If you can find one, buy it! Although for portrait situations an 85mm 1.4 is better...
