I'm enjoying using this zoom lens. Sharp, fast A/F, easy manual focus. Macro though not technically-has 40cm focus distance. TDN in his posts has shown lots of great indoor concert photos. Not as good as Sigma 24-70 F2.8 but that costs twice as much! Filter size 77mm is inconvenient, as I already have a 72mm CP.

Definitely impressive - another lens worth considering. I gather you've discovered that 77mm filters are pretty expensive (having bought a CP for Christmas, along with some step up rings), but well worth the cost to have the right size.
