positive:fast lense
good build
negative:a little heavy to some
large 72 mm filters
comment:Its big and heavy but there are many long stretched where I never take it off the camera. Being that it is a close focus lens I can use it for wide shots or generic macro shooting. The fast aperture makes it a dream in low light.
