Really love this lens. It is one of the best crop sensor lenses out there, no doubt. However (shameless plug), moving to FF, I listed my copy for sale here if anyone is interested:

when i first got the lens i loved it ,i was manually focusing , it was my secoond lens after the kit lens (first was canon 50mm 1.4)then i became enamored with street photography and started using auto focus. however lately iv'e become a bit frustrated with it ,, focusing issues.. i think i may have the front focusing issues people speak of ..half the time shots were a bit soft at the AF point.. at first i thought it was me , my hands are not very steady at all but even using higher shutter speeds things often seemed not right .. i did a test today on a tripod first using live view and manual focusing , then auto focusing the view finder .. most times(about 7 out of 10) manual focusing did a better job then auto focusing .. is this a good way to test .. i'm reall new at this so its hard for me to tell or make any quick determinations /.. any help or suggestions would be appreciated..(is this the right thread for this question or should i start a new thread?)

I had a '73 Corolla...bought new in '74. Looked like this. I'm surprised it hasn't rusted out completely by now. Don't see any.

Excellent photo.

Both shots are @1.8- RAW to Lightroom, no processing- just resized it to 2048 long edge.
