    Cons: no image stabilisation price should be bit lower

    Pros: built in lens hood very solid casing very good image quality cooperats well with converters silent and accurate auto focus

    Summary: You need good light or high iso setting with this lens. But you get really good images with it. This lens is together with a 5D (where you can use higher iso settings) unbeatable!
