  • Conclusion: Sometimes you get much more than you pay for, like with the 28mm 2.8 lens, but most of the time you get what I got here. This is really not a great lens. Save your $100 and put it toward something better.
  • Pros: cheap
  • Cons: very soft in the corners, not much sharper in the center.

  • Conclusion: I bought this lens to complement my 5D (full frame body). It works fine, but it has VERY noticeable barrel distortion at the 20mm end, where I would be using it most. It IS a wide angle zoom, after all. If you are shooting buildings and/or interiors like I do, don't bother considering this lens. I had a Sigma 12-24 (full frame) from my 10D/20D bodies (1.6X) and that lens gives me much better results at 20mm.
  • Pros: Small, lightweight and takes front filters. FTM and the USM are nice features, too.
  • Cons: BARREL DISTORTION at 20mm. Don't buy it expecting to shoot things with straight lines in them.

  • Conclusion: I may have a bad lens and have used it for a few years waiting to get something better. Then I tried the Tamaron 19-35 and liked it better. It seems much sharper on the edges.
  • Pros: never really happy with it.
  • Cons: noy sharp
