|comment:||I can only really echo the comments of others. I always wondered if a lens could be that much better, it warranted such a high price. Well, I bought it anyway and the answer is: yes.|
Sharp wide open, none of the soft ghostly halo effect present in the zooms. Chromatic Aberrations are hardly evident. General superb all-round performance.
Personally I find the focus limiter too slow to disable. 3 seconds is too long sometimes, I'd rather a switch to flick.
I'd also rather it wasn't white, but never mind eh?
