Works great for me

  • Excerpt: This lens is sharp and makes great images for me. I tested the lens for sharpness at different f/stops. F/4 to f/8 seem to be the sweet zone for sharpness with this lens. It's lighter and smaller than the 70-200mm f/2.8 zoom.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh

Excellent lens for a hobbyist

  • Excerpt: This review only applies to hobbyist use, as I am not a professional photographer. I paired this lens with a Canon 6D. The lens produces excellent clarity at all distances: near (2m), mid (6m), and long (10m+). Images contain a high degree of detail without noticeable aberration.
  • Pros: Clarity, Consistent Output, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy

A great prime lens and a steal for it's optical quality - just keep that shutter speed up.

  • Summary: This lens renders very sharp images with lovely colors. For the somewhat brief time that I owned this lens, I enjoyed using it for street photography, family outings, a corporate charity event, and one wedding.

Very sharp!

  • Summary: This modest lens is very sharp. Even with 37mm of extension tubes, it is still impressively sharp with close-ups. Highly recommended for portaits and moderate close-ups!

Top notch lens!

  • Summary: Love this lens!!! It takes beautiful images, and the DOF is just amazing. Having no IS isn't an issue for me as I have steady hands...and can get a sharp image at a low shutter speed without issues....but this won't be the case for some. I highly recommend it!

very nice lens.

Brad Wallis, Amazon

  • Summary: very nice lens... I use it for astro imaging and it performs well with sharp star images throughout the field on a Canon 600D the main writeup says 77mm filter.... the rest of the specs say a 72mm filter It is NOT a 77mm filter ... I hope it is a 72mm filter ! ... That is what the Canon specs say BW

Performs beautifully

  • Excerpt: This is one sharp lens. The size and weight works for me. One caveat: use a recommended UV filter. I initially put on a 72mm UV filter I had used on an HDV camera; a perfectly good filter but the focus was noticeably soft. So I purchased a B+W UV--problem solved!
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

Fantastic Glass

Scott S, B&H Photo
7 May 2015
  • Excerpt: This is my first "L" lens and I am now a believer that the additional cost is worth it. Don't buy into the sales pitches or reviews telling you that other glass "for half the price" is "L" quality - it's not. I bought them and have never been truly impressed.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
