This lens is just incredible. I used one at a local store and was really impressed. However, the lack of OS is apparent, but just shoot with a higher SS and all goes away. There is a used one in very mint condition for $795, and I really want to pick it up, but no job in sight :(

I have a filter on my lens and the lens cap stays secure on the filter. It is a 77mm Tiffen UV filter. I think even without the filter on it was still pretty secure though.

Mine came off in my bag the other day, and now I have a scratched front element. vmad


No, I'm not a professional photographer, but I did sleep at a Holiday Inn Express last night.
