"Great image quality"on by rrh13
Pros Fantastic clarity, sharpness and image quality. Minimal distortion for most situations. Reasonably light for all day usage. IS can get you down to 1/8 if you have stable hands.
Cons A price reduction would be great. Some distortion in pictures with a lot of straight lines, especially in the distance, i.e. cityscapes in daylight.
Summary If you can aford it, buy this lens.
Pros Light weight and sharp images, fast and quiet.
Cons None, pricey, but you get what you pay for.
Summary Spend the money on quality glass if you can, it is well worth it for color reproduction and lighting.
