    Anyone? what do you think. I think it would be a perfect walk around for my 30d. Anyone have personal experience?

    Great little lens optically, but that focus system sucks balls. $150 is a good price, I'm assuming it's used?

    go for it.

    I prefer wider for walk around. My 80% of the time lens is 24mm.

    I'd buy it. You can always resell it, probably for more than $150 too.

    I have one of these..it is quite nice..but for some reason whenever I use it with a flash it tends to blowout the colors..seems like its sending the incorrect info for the flash so I set the flash in manual and just set it there..that sucks

    You switch the switch from af to mf and you can manual focus...but you can't move do anything in af.
