I bought the Art version and, while I can't comment on whether there are differences in image quality between the old and new versions, I believe the manual-focus ring on the Art version is silly. The prior version is way more practical and usable.

Hi,

Could you please elaborate a bit on what you mean by "silly" and "usable"? I'll probably pick one of these up in a few days but will have to buy online since no stores in my area seem to have them in stock to try out.

Thanks!

There's nothing wrong with the Auto Focusing it just as fast on my 5R as the kit lens, but manually using the focus ring is quite tricky, you can't use the tips of your fingers like you can with a conventional style ring, I find that I have to wrap my index finger and thumb around it to to grip and turn it.
