|comment:||I bought this lens a few months ago as a result of reviews I read here. The first copy had a little spot that did not effect performance. I was able to acquire this lens, a Min 50 1.7 and a 7000 for $225 CDN. I sold the other copy. I used it a little on my 7D but it was too heavy for what I was doing at the time.|
I used it on my A700 this week while doing some hiking and photography of some different rivers and waterfalls. I really see what this lens can do. I am really happy with the results.
The weight meant that at times I was choosing other options. I will now choose this lens whenever I can.
