positive:Very nice picture
comment:It's a great lens at all. It has a very good picture quality, it's extremly sharp (by F2.8 it seems to me better than the 200/2.8 G, but the 200/2.8 is a little sharper on the other aperture values). A soft focus effect can be a very nice creative tool, but not usable in every shooting situation.
