Good lens for serious amateur

Cris, Adorama
29 August 2014
  • Excerpt: Short and simple. This lens is does exactly what I expected it to do - take great photos. One can get a balanced impression and make a judgment about this lens by reading all the reviews. It is made for the serious amateur, maybe not for the pro. I have owned my Canon 20mm for about three years, and have produced clear, sharp, award-winning photos. My interests are landscape contests and stock photos. I don't need to push my lenses like a pro. I use it with a 40D.
  • Pros: Superior build quality

Fast and Wide

  • Conclusion: This is a very sharp lens. It quickly became my favorite for panoramic shoots and steadycam fly through. It allows for amazing flexibility because of its small size and fast aperture.

Great on my crop sensor T3i

SeriouslyRelaxed, Amazon
1 May 2014
  • Summary: I use a T3i crop sensor camera and wanted a 35mm equivalent mainly for video work. I use this lens about 50/50 for photo and video. This one since it functions like a 32mm I find it is a very versatile focal length. I find it to be great in low light, vivid color, and sharp at 2.8. There is barely perceptible barrel distortion on the crop sensor camera. Overall I love this lens and would suggest it for both photography and video for a crop sensor camera.

Good lens for the price

UDPride, B&H Photo
22 April 2014
  • Excerpt: This is a very good lens for the price. The equivalent L lens at 24mm is about $1000 more. If you dont want the additional wider aperture of the L lens and dont need the better build quality, this is a good alternative. Not quite as sharp as the L and I find the L shoots much better at 2.8. Still for under $[$], this is one of the best non-L lenses Canon makes. Id consider it an "L-Lite".
  • Pros: Lightweight
  • Cons: Poor in Low Light, Weak Casing

nice lens

  • Excerpt: I purchased this lens used (1 month old )and was a little cautious about it's value.Took some pictures and was very pleased.Having other wide angle Len's to compare with 24-105,24-85 and17-40 I can say this 20mm lens is as good or better tan most of the other lens.I like the build quality and how light it is and it is very sharp.My 5D mark 3 helps with it's lens correction.
  • Pros: Build Quality, Light Weight, Sharp
