Cons: I don't see any bad thing about this lens you just have to know how to operate your camera well in order to compensate the good quality of the lens.

Pros: PERFECT! its almost like an all around lens for me.

Summary: I must buy to all Professional photographers out there! its a good replacement to your heavy 70-200mm lenses.

Cons: none

Pros: sharp, DOF, excellent build quality

Summary: this is one of those underestimated lens for its performance. AF is blistering fast and accurate. IQ is tack sharp with excellent DOF. Version II is much improved on the first one. At any given focal length, IQ is up to those of Limited Prime lens.
