price paid:
Working Distance
Focus limiter
negative:Price, but you get what you pay for
Hunting focus if you don't use the limiter
comment:I'll keep this brief. If there is any one lens that noone should ever sell, it should be this lens. If you are having a problem with your shots not turning out how you want them to, bring this lens and you will most likely only have to criticize your own composition instead of the sharpness in the photos. It's great for portraits, overall telephoto at this range, and especially macro.
