Like I said, I've been crazy impressed with images I've seen around the web, but that price just keeps staring at me from my computer screen. Would you say it's worth the price?

I admit that I had to swallow hard to shell out $850 for it.  Whether it's worth the price may depend on your own situation and what you value.  Is a $75 bottle of excellent wine worth the price? (Maybe for an anniversary dinner, but not every night!)

I can say that I'm very glad to have it, enjoy using it, and love the images I get from it.  For me it's worth the price.

I've used it for indoor performances that aren't well-lit, portraits, and increasingly other diverse subjects.  One example: we took our dogs to an expansive off-leash dog park and I had fun shooting with the 75 as the only lens I took.  Putting aside any comparisons of different focal lengths and their usefulness, it is the best lens I own.

But, ouch, that price!
