ownership:I own this lens
compared to:nothing in my bag to compare to except the Tamron 17-50 f2.8, nothing to choose between them
price paid:GBP199
positive:A fast focussing lens that locks on very quickly.
Build quality is great and has a metal mount, not to fond of plastic mounts as they don't give you the assurance of metal ones.
comment:overall a great lens, looking forward to using this when I eventually go full frame.
