... not up to the task of full frame cameras like the canon 6d

  • Summary: this lens is not up to the task of full frame cameras like the canon 6d. The zoom range is nice, but Its just not sharp enough to do justice to the full frame sensor. Amazed that canon is still selling this as an l lens

Quick focus, good overall pictures, but

Santhosh, Canon

  • Excerpt: Lens is faster auto focus, overall good photo results. But went to faulty in less than 2 years - power diaphragm issue. While search the issue on website, found this is common issue with this lens for many years.
  • Pros: Fast auto-focus, Super-sharp images
  • Cons: Poor build quality

Wasn't what I expected

Doug, B&H Photo
21 April 2012
  • Excerpt: Amateur; arguably an enthusiast, but admittedly not the most educated. The lens doesn't perform as expected considering the investment. My Canon 10-22 noticeably outperforms. Not a recognizable step up from my kit (18-135 on a 50D).

Very soft @24mm

Worg, Canon
15 April 2012
  • Excerpt: While the lens is sharp @f4, the problem is the wide end at any aperture - it's very soft and mushy and does not render detail well. I'm exchanging it to see if i got a bad copy.
  • Cons: slow, zoom control hard to turn

Unacceptable for the price- lemon?

GreyTiger, B&H Photo
22 February 2012
  • Excerpt: I must have received a lemon but this lens combined with my 5Dii is completely unacceptable. Soft focus, "whites" tend to blead!, noticeable and random vignetting. This lens is [*]. This will be going back to be exchanged. If I see the same issues I will be returning my entire order.

Not for me

Natasha, B&H Photo
1 July 2011
  • Excerpt: If the sun is out and the flash is bright, this lens is very nice. But let the clouds roll over or try to go for something in a darker area, forget about it. Soft, soft, soft. I wish I would have gone for the 24-70. Great range, but really needs a lot of light to shine.

Bad lens[...]

baugwan, Adorama
25 January 2011
  • Excerpt: I believe this is just a bad lens that got past quality control. The focus just wasn't there even when shot from a tripod using a remote control to fire the camera, at any focal length. The best focus was shot at 58MM and that was just good at best.
  • Cons: Blurry Focus, Slow Focus
