This lense was given to me by a good friend. My hands shake a lot due to Essential Tremors. This lense does not have IS which makes it harder to use without a tripod. Other than that I'm glad to have this lense!
My wife uses this lens for portrait and flower pictures and they look amazing. We tested several lenses in the same price range before buying this one and while they were all great this one was the best for our Canon 7D and light conditions.
I got this lense the same time I got my camera. And I have to say, I'm pretty impressed. I wouldn't recommend this to a professional. But for a beginner or a intermediate photographer it's a perfect fit. It's a great lens and I would recommend this to anyone who would like a medium duty lens.
