High speed, superior image quality, high build quality
heavy lens, zoom ring slips easily from self

I am a proud owner of this lens for almost 6 weeks and I have given this lens the nickname "my little monster", because it weighs almost 1.5 kg, it is large, heavy and looks very professional. The only reason such a lens to lug is high speed and the play with focus and blur, and I use this in full, because I never take pictures with smaller apertures than F 2.8 or 4. In situations of spontaneous portraits of people at events and festivals images are not only incredibly sharp, contrasty, but also with an incomparable style and fantastic bokeh. The high speed of 2.8 makes it easy to focus and gives the pictures a great depth. Compared with the Canon FD 80-200 zoom L, which I had before, this zoom weighs twice, but this lens does not need a comparison, it is pure magic, what it is performing on the film. It's an old scool lens, for people with old style to use such a lens!
