|ownership:||I own this lens|
|compared to:||there is no comparison. But I have owned/used the following: |

heavy version of the 35-105
30 1.4 sigma
|price paid:||740.00 USD|
|positive:||Best color, sharpness, rate of focus, and build of ANY lens I've ever used or owned- including the newer "faster" versions of these.|
|negative:||Minimum focusing distance could be shorter.|
|comment:||If you're lucky enough to find this version of this, sell an organ if you have to, and BUY IT! |
My copy had been pretty beat up, and had a broken helacoid- 100 bucks at KEH.com and I was set.
Though this lens has a little more specific use, it is THE BEST hunk of glass I've ever touched. Did I mention I'm a fan.
