    Over the years I've heard a lot of people say "it's a pretty damn good lens", but rarely do I ever hear people say "ZOMG, it's AMAZING".... not like some of Canon's primes or the Nikon 12-24.

    Edit: For the record I've used it once and it was ok. I found 70mm at 2.8 to be softer than I would expect for a $1000+ lens.

    It's heavy.

    X gf let it fall out of the camera bag, I had it repaired... then I dropped it. :(
