    Strengths:    Extremely sharp optics
    Tripod mounting collar built-in
    Polarizer operating window in hood
    excellent balance due to IF
    can be hand held with fast film and high shutter speeds


    Weaknesses:    Heavy...not for the faint of heart
    Expensive (but worth it)


    Bottom Line:   
    Seems to be extremely sharp at all apertures except wide open (f/4). This is a big improvement over the non-ED(IF) lens. Blistering sharpness all the way down to minimum aperture. Integral tripod mounting collar on barrel balances a 67II body at precisely the right "sweet spot".
