I think many commenters are missing the point. This is a lens for people with disposable income who want to take nice pictures of little Timmy blowing out the candles and Brooklyn's dance recital without changing lenses. The new bodies nearly see in the dark so the aperture is not as important. Just because it's not built for you doesn't mean it's a bad lens.
I have been reading this website for a couple of years and I just made an account to comment about the whining that exists on this website.
How self centered are you that just because each and every thing posted on this website isn't customized to exactly what you want and only what you want you feel you have to throw a tantrum like a three year old.
