Summary: Canon EF 20-35mm f/3.5 - 4.5 USM Wide Angle Zoom Lens for Canon SLR Cameras. Easy to use,very sharp pictures, it is a strong lens, good autofocus system, the luminosity is really good. It's a light weight lens, not heavy.
Summary: It is a practical zoom lens, almost standard for my 300D.It covers 32-56mm of a 35mm standard. The USM focusing on the 20-35mm is silent and fast. It is sharp and a very good replacement for my previous kit lens.
Summary: Once you get a full frame D5 you will apprecuate this lens as the lens will not produce any great advantage with all the other lenses offering more range. the quality and built of this lens will pay off with low distortion and wide coverage on a full frame sensor.
Conclusion: I bought this lens second-hand off craigslist. It came with a it's dedicated Canon lens hood, a Canon EOS Rebel G 35mm body, 500 sheets of 4x6 photo paper, 400 sheets of 5x7 paper, and probably 50 rolls of various types of film. The entire bundle was $230, which I think is quite a deal. On a 35mm (or full frame digital for that matter,) this lens is fantastic. 20mm gets a lot of picture in the frame.
Pros: VERY lightweight, USM, 20-35mm, quite sharp
Cons: Bit limiting on a 1.6 crop body- but once you learn how to combine them, not a problem.
