positive:Extremely sharp through entire range
Fast and accurate AF
Lovely bokeh
Great colors
Lightweight for a lens of this type
negative:None that I've seen yet.
comment:This is a fantastically light and fast lens. Much easier to use for a long day of shooting and as a carry around/hiking lens. The lack of OS doesn't bother me that much as I've not seen it affect my photos at the shutter speeds I use.
