comment:got this lense today off flea bay,what a little gem it is,sharp,quick focus and mine really is in mint condition and quiet autofocus.took a few pics today and very impressed,they seem too be selling for a bit more money now but i dont regret a penny of it,money well spent.great colour and sharpness,although mine didnt come with a hood so will try an source something to stop the flare,if you can get one cheap enough i doubt you will be dissapointed.
