Pros:1. relatively light (just over half a kg is for me light and perfectly balanced on my 1000d with battery grip even when I mount an external flash of another half kg); 2. excellent focal excursion also on aps-c (at 28mm it is a normal lens style 50mm on ff and at 200mm it is roughly a 300mm on apsc more than enough for everything - for the relatively pushed wide angle I have a 10-18); 3. Manual focus for me convenient, once put in manual the ring is very fluid compared to other autofocus lenses put in manual and does not need electricity to operate; 4. it has the distances marked on the barrel and can be useful to learn to evaluate them by eye and to focus faster and are more visible at night than distances in the window; 5. for portraits it has its own character that I like a lot with 8-slat diaphragm (a little retro perhaps but not anonymous); 6. it has a decent macro use and bears the extension tubes well for even closer shooting;
Cons:1. for photography it should be used realistically closed to f/8 over the entire focal excursion to maximize sharpness and to minimize chromatic aberrations; 2. it should be used practically exclusively in manual focus: autofocus is slow (in the order of seconds), noisy and inaccurate; 3. it is not a tropicalized lens but those who ask for this lens do not go to mount it on a flagship to bring it into the swamp so compared to the common conditions of use including light rain is never a problem; 4. the difference in optical quality with respect to a fixed lens but also with respect to some recent non-professional zooms honestly there is (but optical quality is not all in a photo .. );
Opinion:I would like to start by pointing out that I use the lens on aps-c Canon therefore with due consideration with respect to the crop factor with respect to how it was drawn; it has become over time my school lens and the lens that I most frequently use when I need manual focus, at the moment my only telephoto lens over 70mm and the lens that all in all I take on holiday more willingly because with the focal excursion greater than those in my possession; Also used on EOS 300V (35mm analog) without any problems. In conclusion: despite the flaws, if I had to give away all the lenses except one it would be the one I would keep.
