Picked up this lens used today for about $125, pretty happy with it so far, anybody else have this lens? I saw the post for the Di version, but none for this one.

Throw up the pics!!

Maybe you are the only person? ;) $125??? WHAT?!?!? This seems to be a very good lens from your samples! I jsut hocked my Canon 100 macro due to lack of use, and the cost. but 125? I could certainly justify that!!! Got any pics OF the lens? when focusing does the fron element go in and out? How is the speed of AF? I think you got the deal of the year! :)

Livinthalife - the front element extends but doesn't rotate, which is nice. AF is fast!

MarineManiac - Glad to see somebody else has this lens!

the lens itself...

Don't worry, you are not the only one to have this lens. I picked one up off e-bay a couple of months ago and have been playing with it on my 500D.

I've had this lens for a number of years. I love it!

Here are a few pics taken during an hour I had with a borrowed 1D Mk III. All ISO 100. No flash.

This was my first time ever using a DSLR.

Let's see if I can post pics of my lens... (Photos were taken by the ebay seller.) I paid about $225. The lens might be had for less, but I have no buyer's remorse. It shoots nice portraits too, but the autofocus is a bit slow.

These were taken hand-held with a 420EX on an e-ttl cord.

I still think optically this lens is hard to beat (in my experience)
