Just bought the Magic Drainpipe Instead!!

So after reading more an more about all the lenses in question... I decided the take the plunge and 'risk' it by getting the Magic Drainpipe. The good thing is that I got it from KEH so at least I have a 6 month warranty : )

From what I have read, the AF Speed on the Magic Drainpipe is not close to Canon Ring USM, but some claimed it is comparable to Sigma's HSM so hopefully it will be good enough... I do mostly portraits so it does not have to be a pure sports rapid fire performer by any means.

Thanks again for your input all.
