So I see Adorama has this lens on sale now and being it is a relatively newer lens (last year I believe) I wanted to know what folks here think.

Any of you good folks have this and like it for the current price.
I saw a lot of heartburn about the initial pricing and I would agree.
I also saw digital-picture.com review of this lens and wanted to see a bit more.

Please feel free to weigh in.

Thanks

Thanks for the affiliate link Karl. It's against the POTN forum rules to post affiliate links for commission sales. You replace that link with a regular link ASAP.

There is a promo link roaming around via Adorama's Twitter page. The affiliate link is a code added onto the link for commission sales. Therefore there is a non-affiliate link that should be posted per POTN's rules.
