reviewswhat are people saying

"It's super fast with the f2 capability and has great clarity. With an infinity focal length it offers much more than just macro applications"

bhphotovideo.com

"Clear and sharp macro, quick focus on a 7D and a good protrait lense."

bhphotovideo.com

"My only complaint is that I would like to be able to limit the focus range, it hunts alot. Even if i manually focus pretty close to what I think is right, it'll back out entirely, then focus back in and all the way out and back until it finds focus."

Aren't the Di II lenses ASP-C compatible only? The description even mentions it but the graphic says it's full frame compatible.
