Re: Everybody's first prime lens should be this

I sold mine after the second repair for the focus mechanism binding and preventing AF.  The lens shaft that extends (when you focus close) is subject to being distorted when even lightly impacted - this will cause it to bind within the main lens body.

I did like the optical quality, focal length and speed.  It's a shame that Canon didn't design it at an internal focus lens.
