Right. Just out of curiosity, did the fella who recommended this lens actually have one that he'd used? If not, what was he basing his recommendation on?
IMO, although this lens looks pretty promising at this point, it's still something of an unknown quantity, and I'm waiting for some more review before I decide whether it's really worth $2,300.
She has the version 1 of the lens. And with reviews of the II being promising, I went for it...or thought I did.
