comment:What a superb portrait lens for APS-C. Fast and silent AF respons. Build quality is very good, all metal even the lenshood. The size and weight are perfect for me. I am really impressed and enthousiast about this beauty. Very pleased my offer was accepted!
€ 125,- is a steal IMHO. Lucky me...
