After reading all the reviews I finally settled my choice on this lens instead of the twice as expensive Canon equivalent. I was a bit worried about its autofocus behavior, especially since this lens was meant to be used with a Canon 60D, so without MFA.
Well, what can I say ? I'm just amazed of the quality this piece of glass delivers and it's worth every penny it costs. No worried about autofocus, it's tack sharp and reactive enough to take action series.
Really minor PP with LR and Nik Color Efex.
It feels solid, it seems well built, the rings are a bit stiff compared to my 17-55 f/2,8 and I strongly recommend it to anyone looking for a good lens in this focal range.
Oh, did I mention it's black ? Even if it looks like a bazooka, it won't draw as much attention as a white Canon. Seems silly, but for me it's also a big advantage.
Again, you can't get wrong with this lens.
