    I have been doing photography for many years and never have I ever had such a horrible experience with a lens. The autofocus is a tad bit slower than my Tamron 20-70 but what truly kills it is the inaccuracy of its focus. It wouldn't matter what subject or object I was shooting it would always be off. First throught came to mind it needs recalibration, but I was not going to go through the hassle and send it off for recalibration so I purchased a new one and still same issue. I attempted to do a few portraits with it to see if by any chance I might be able to redeem percentage of use and what do you know, after shooting for 1 hour 1 out of 10 shots would be in focus from f1.8 to f4. F4!! At f4 on most lenses 98% of the time you should get a pretty sharp image but no, not with this lens. Now when I did get a sharp image it was fantastic quality of an L lens, but Having to constantly take about 10 shots to make sure you at least get one decent one is a major deal breaker. With that being said please move on and try a different lens.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend
