price paid:300 € used
positive:my basic prime lens
comment:Rarely leaves my D5D body. Colours, contrast, sharpness and softness are perfect ballanced. Excellent boceh. This lens has ability to learn to see and to be prepared because of its slow AF. It takes stunning portraits of flowers. Great for macro of course. I use it in music concerts in manual mode also. I wish MIN had 100-200/2.8 1:1 macro.
