positive:+ sharp
+ bokeh
+ build like a tank

comment:I just love this lens. More than 20 years old, it still amazes me with almost every picture. If you are into macro photography, this is what you want to get. Maybe the AF is a bit faster in the newer versions, but hey... it's a macro lens! Very highly recommended!
