positive:Sharp and Fast focus
negative:a Little noisy focus ring but not boring
comment:Work very well on my 7D, Nice for Indoor portrait very usable a 1.4 and better from 2 to 11. I paid for it 329 Euros in France. Some back focus in low light , so I put 5600 HS flash without turn it on, and use the flash illuminator for focusing easier.And become as quick as in good light
