    Cons: Minimum focus distance

    Pros: I love this lens. Its focus is spot on and the maximum aperature is the same all the way through.

    Summary: All in all this is a great lens. I never thought when I bought it on EBay it was going to be one of my favorites. The slide for distance is also very nice. I was leery worrying about the autofocus, but it works really great. I am unsure why they discontinued this lens.

    Cons: Minimum focusing distance long, AF loud and slow, no manual focusing

    Pros: optically quite good (like canon 100-300 usm), cheap! good build quality, not too heavy, Push-Pull zoom (I like that), constant aperture f4.5 and sharp pictures from f5.6 in all ranges

    Summary: You can get very nice pictures with this lens and it is easy to handle if you like Push-Pull zooms. You cannot focus manually, but AF is quite good on my Canon 50d and 30d. As you can get it very cheap, it is a lot better than its price shows!
