  • Excerpt: I saw this lens on the B&H website and ordered it not realizing it was not stabilized. At 74 years old, I am not as steady as I used to be so returned it. Those images (see attached) I took with the camera braced were very nice. It's a winner for the not so shaky or tripod crowd!!!!
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus

Good lens

  • Excerpt: I have used a friend of mine s lens a few times before I buy one. I buy mine to shoot an interior of a new house. My 24-105 was not quite wide enough to get the shots I wanted. I was using it on a tripod with just the ambient light with my 5D and got some great shot. My other use has been landscape.
  • Pros: Durable, Lightweight, Strong Construction

  • Excerpt: I shoot interiors for a real estate company and this is by far my favorite lens to use. Its a beautiful lens with crystal clear images. The distortion is definitely noticeable which is a downside but is easily fixed with Lightroom's lens corrections.

  • Excerpt: I felt the need to leave a review, which I don't do that often. This lens, a couple stops closed, is fantastic. I started shooting architecture/commercial real estate using a 24mm-105mm and this lens was a huge upgrade and much wider.
  • Pros: Durable, Rugged
  • Cons: Poor in Low Light

  • Excerpt: Used this lens to take a shot of the vendors (100+) from the balcony of a show. The picture was featured in the club's magazine, and people were able to pick themselves out quite easily. Does need a tripod.
