    Used it today, awesome lens. I went ahead and ordered a 2nd hand one for $1350! It zooms and the focus stays :bigthumb:

    the 60mm is my sharpest lens. I don't really think the zoom can compare...

    some ppl say they don't like using the 60mm for portraits because of all the details (flaws) it shows
