Very sharp lens but flawed mechanical design. The micro-USM is prone to easy damage even when care is taken. My copy failed recently and now only works in manual. A fix is a significant fraction of the new price so I am currently not repairing it. A full ring USM design would be welcome even if slightly larger and heavier.
