I have this lens. Bought it from Canon refurbished. Even though I had to send it back twice due to a faulty aperture unit, the image quality is amazing. For the price, you can't beat this lens. It's sharp, even wide open. And so much fun to be had with it creatively. If you can get your hands on a used one, I say go for it. Shame they discontinued it, but I guess they had to come out with a new one so they could jack up the price as they did with all the new lenses...
