comment:I just love it :-)
Small, less than average weight, white, AF speed and accuracy, built like a tank, incorporated hood (it's impossible to get it lost!), colors, sharpness, compatible with APO TCs, easy to handhold, very nice to manual focus, useful focus hold button and focus limiter, fits in every bag. Impressive!
