reviewswhat are people saying

"The lens is very solid. The focus ring on it is very stable unlike what you would get a 50mm 1.4."

"Great lens, solid building and great for any kind of wide angle shots."

"The only real setback is that I've found it to be slow to focus sometimes. It just doesn't want to snap to focus like most other usm lenses."
