Re: Buy it, its worth it!

I bought it on an Amazon Gold Box deal but eventually sold it on.

Everybody is right: it's a super sharp lens and a great value, but it still locks up $250 that you could spend on something else.  If you already own the 7-14, any marginal sharpness improvement from the 7.5 doesn't really seem worth the money.

I wound up spending the same money on an FL-600R flash, which improves my indoor photography tremendously.  The 7.5 was more of a novelty.

Obviously, YMMV.
