comment:It is hard for me to find this "Legend" lens, after searching trough many forums in my country. The moment I grab it, I realize that this lens will often calling me to take an adventure. AF very fast, in body focus sounding very soft, and I really like the way it produce sharp at aperture 5.6 and above (I found it softer below 5.6). It makes me more happ at 135mm when I take a picture of my friend at my office...I really love the details in it (please take a look at sample image, I name it "Remembering")
