Sharp wide open, quick AF motor, bright f/2 aperture
No stabilization, only focus down to 90cm.
This is a very fast focusing beast well suited for sports photography, and its f/2 max aperture gives you a very creamy bokeh for portrait and the oportunity to take pictures in bad iluminated places.
Regarding image quality, nothing to complain, at f/2 this lens is very sharp and at f/2.8 it is perfect IMHO. Of course, there are better lenses now available, but they cost more than this one in any case.
I use mine mainly for taking Sports pictures, basketball or gimnastics in my case. It gives me nice results and keeps happy my 50D's frame per second rate.
This is must have lens.
Excellent picture, beautiful bokeh with a slight twisting, very sharp p>
The design is not perfect - from the 2 lenses that I had both been with the problems. I first loosened the focus ring, the second it almost fell off =) p>
Definitely should be in every amateur photographing portraits =) p>
