    Cons: A super small amount purple (foreground) and green fringing (background) in the harshest conditions but it\'s hard to spot.

    Pros: Lovely mix of sharp and out of focus renderings. Shoot at ƒ2 all day and enjoy the lovely images and whip-snap AF.

    Summary: Outstanding for portraits and event coverage. My copy is over 12 years old and still sings with the latest Canon digital sensors.

    Cons: None!

    Pros: 1) Excellent image quality 2) Razor sharp at f/2 3) The bokeh is simply incredible - smooth as silk

    Summary: This is probably the best lens in my kit. It takes excellent pictures, and acts as a great indoor and portrait lens. It might be too long for those with a crop-body, but I like the sharpness and colors that it produces, which are simply incredible.

    Cons: Hard to find! I would have appreciate a round shape aperture ring, and wish it was stabilized.

    Pros: Everything: build quality, AF speed, sharpness, color, contrast, etc... But the most amazing part of this lens is the outstanding quality of the bokeh, the most beautiful one available, all brand included.

    Summary: The perfect lens for portraiture, try it and you will instantly love it!
