price paid:
positive:Sharpness, Bokeh, Universal focal length, Macro lens
negative:Weight, focus ring, Long min. focus distance
comment:Extremly sharp, beutiful bokeh.
I use it often for photographying flowers at the Botanical garden. Slow focus is not so important as I use it on manual. Slightky too heavy but rigid construction makes it stable. I had some mechanical problems but short visit to the service makes it working perfect.
