Yeah, I want one of those. The lens, that is, not the cat.

I'm a fan of the lens too. Here's two of my contributions.

Best bang for your buck lens out there I believe though.

What is this?

Actually owning a lens and commenting about it after you take pictures with it? That's outrageous.

The only true way to tell if a lens is any good is to read lens tests on the internet or comments by people who have never owned or shot one... not to actually take pictures with one for yourself! Didn't you know that?

Just kidding... obviously...

Have fun with your new lens guys, it is awesome. :) Great shots too, BTW!!!

It is what it is.

You will definitely not be let down by it.

Here is another quick snap with it. The weather has been pretty crappy lately so I still havent had a real opportunity to take the lens out.
