Thom's Mini Review: Another real gem of a lens. Comes with a close-up accessory and unique, small lens hood. Optically an excellent performer, and again, this lens is easy to fit into your bag for those special occasions. Well made, compact, excellent optical quality, plus useful included accessories are hard to find in a sub US$500 lens. Makes an adequate loose portrait lens for DX, by the way. Recommended
