I've had this lens for a while and never visited this thread. It's full of so many great images!!

Anyway, now with Smugmugs BS, it forced me to set-up a Coppermine gallery, so this is really a test on seeing how linking a file is from there.

Is this image too large? I may need to change a setting..

Here's an adorable little puppy I met today... she had very unique eyes. I've never seen another Doxie with these eyes...

First post!

Thought I'd start by saying I just bought this lens from Amazon, be here tomorrow.

Anything I should know and watch for in this lens? I know a lot of people have "issues" with this lens and how it behaves, product of user error not understanding how lens works? Or actual manufacturer flaws?

Look forward to this baby!

I say it's both. It can be user error due to the focus and recompose method when using it wide open.

But, I know my copy also behaves erratically. Usually front focusing fairly badly sometimes. I just tend to shoot a burst, so one of them should be sharp.

You always have to be careful shooting wide open at f/1.4. There is very little room for error. I used to always centre point focus then recompose, but with this lens I pick the focus point I want to use and the hit rate is a lot higher. It can be fickle, particularly in lower light where there is not a strong contrast difference, but so can most other lenses in that situation. My first copy was a complete dud, it did not front or back focus, it just didn't focus on anything at all. The replacement is spot on but still fickle. The images it produces though are well worth any small shortcomings.
