  • Conclusion: This is the third time i try to make a review. Honestly i don't understand why do you reject. Anyhow let talk a bit about this lens. I got a brand new lens, and i think it is defected and not sharp at all. Today i tried to take a long exposure picture on a tripod and even that didnt help with the sharpness at all. I've read lot of people having problem with this lens but couldn't believe it until i use it.

Not Going To Rave About It

  • Excerpt: I'm using this lens with a T2i, I've had it for almost 2 years. I hate to throw cold water on everyone's reviews but I can't rave about the lens. Yes, it can take good pictures, I've used it as the basic lens on this camera along with a EF 70-200 L and I haven't felt the need for a 50mm lens for everyday shots. Crisp? No, the 70-200 is crisp, this lens is always blurry around the edges. The center can be crisp or not, never know quite what you'll get.
  • Cons: Blurry Focus

  • Excerpt: Landscape, closeups. Everything you would expect quality wise from an L series. Image Stabilization is not included. Not a primary lens, limited useage. I do recommend this lens if you're looking for greated range than the 24-105 provides and there is a significant difference in shot capabilities between the two.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

Beautiful Lens!!

  • Excerpt: To be honest I have been disappointed with this lens and just emailed Canon to ask about returning it. For an L lens it has never given me the clarity I think an L lens should have. I might have got a bad copy but really cant tell. Sometimes I have a model with an all clear face and others times it is soft. I give it 3 stars because it isn't clear as I think it should be. Going back to primes.
  • Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable
  • Cons: Blurry Focus, Lens Creep, Slow Focus

Good lens

  • Excerpt: Use this mostly for three dimensional installation artworks and for architectural shots. Lens is a bit soft at the widest aperture 16mm, but makes up for that by being able to shoot in low light conditions.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus

Consider the prime wide angles

  • Excerpt: This is a great lens at f8-11 for landscape and confined spaces. Wide open the IQ is a little soft particular in the corners. Otherwise great for video on the 5DM2.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Rugged

Very important for 600d users
