comment:This is the best lens I have as well as the only non-kit lens. I really like the quality of the build, except the size is a bit hard for holding for me (I do have large hands and have been used to holding lens along with camera). I really like the quality of the color and sharpness of the photos I have taken with this lens on my 5d. I have not had a problem with flares or distortion. I bought it used on E-Bay for $220.

**EDIT: Don't do what I did...I sold it...**
