    Cons: Metal hood (slowly screwed in, lack of useful transportation mode), more convenient on FX

    Pros: Very nice bokeh, fast and accurate

    Summary: Great lens for portraits and "artistic" abstract compositions but requires space both in the open and inside the backpack.

    Cons: Some chromatic aberration wide open in high contrast scenes. Bulky, metal, lens hood.

    Pros: Fast, sharp, beautiful IQ and bokeh. Built like a tank and yet not too heavy. I prefer it to the 135mm f/2 DC. Works great on full-frame.

    Summary: Great lens! Buy it. It's a steal, especially now that the new G version is around, which is overpriced in my opinion since it's almost the same exact thing (in terms of optics). Get it used if you don't want to pay the new price.
