Pros: Despite its age, this lens is capable of sharp images with lovely bokeh. Can be bought for a reasonable price, considering the modern alternatives at this focal length and speed (f/4.5) -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Cons: Very heavy, so not easy to hand-hold - although possible for short lengths of time. I use a monopod when walking about for birds. Auto-focus is slow but accurate. This lens is good when used, say in a hide or a fixed position on a tripod or resting on a bean bag, then it is capable of good pictures. The main problem with Canon is that on modern cameras it can only be used at full aperture f/4.5 with my 7D . My 6D gives /f4.5 and f/5.It works completely with certain older cameras, but the pixel count and ISO is going to be low!

Opinion: Good value if you can find one these days, but a bit of a dinosaur! However, I like mine despite it's limitations and use it regularly in good light.Martin Swannell. -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Pros: focal length sharpness very low price being a very old lens.

Cons: Af slow and noisy, on the 10d canon digital only works on the maximum aperture gives error99 otherwise (canon eos d30 and d60 works without restrictions)

Opinion: despite being a very old lens has a sharpness still good, unfortunately on canon unfortunately can only be used to F4.5 but I must say that returns a file good enough you could close would not trade it for anything in the mondo.rnIl weight is not excessive photo sessions 2 to 3 hours maximum freehand strongly recommended tripod.
