the quality and feel of this lens is superb, but it is so heavy that you have to hold the lens more than the camera, or risk damaging the mount. It is very fast and the f2.8 aperture gives excellent low light performance. If you're looking at this, you may have to decide whether you would take this one or go for the new f4 one which is about half the weight, a bit quicker, and just as good, but loses out on the light grabbing capabilities of this lens. If you're looking at travelling a lot with this lens, you will almost certainly prefer the F4 version.
