Re: How could it?

I don't have the newer version so can't compare it against the Magic Drainpipe, but for me I have found the focus fine for my shooting style, it is fast and not as noisy as some have said... the color and contrast are super.

It is a little soft at f 2.8 but when you need the extra stop for the shot it is more the adequate and stopped down to f4 it is very sharp.

IS and full time manual focus would be nice to have on this lens and it is missing.

The prices for these are getting a little stronger as more people seem to be looking for good clean examples of them, so if you could find one at a reasonable price that is in nice condition I would certainly give it a serious look.
