Cheap secondhand, well built metal construction, constant aperture, great for portraiture.


Narrow manual focus ring, focus ring awkward to reach in manual mode requiring holding the lens further down the barrel, focus ring a bit slack when disengaged from autofucs mode. Off axis distance scale may not appeal to some. 


I've used this lens for a while now although not exhaustively. I like to use a 70-210 for fashion and glamour work. and this lens gave nice bokeh wide open and excellent sharpness.
