Re: DA* 16-50: your take on it?

I like mine, have not had any issues with it.  I purchased before the price hike, so at the time it was worth it, now, the price seems pretty steep.

In some studio work stopped down a bit it's about as sharp as my 77 ltd.  I like the quiet motor of the sdm.  I am crossing my fingers that it doesn't fail.  So far after a year it is still working flawlessly.

So, can I recommend it, yes, if you have the money.  It can produce some stunning photos.
