The lens looks attractive, but in the end, on my DSLR, I don't think it makes much sense. I didn't buy my DSLR for size (as in small size) and my goal wasn't to get the smallest lenses available but the best quality I can afford. Also 2.8 isnt something that impressive on this focal length. Now if it was 2.0 or 2.2, that would make it a bit more attractive for me. Either way, unless this turns out to be an amazing performer, I will save my money and buy a "big" lens.
