Useful lens

  • Excerpt: The plastic around the lens mount failed when the lens took a short fall. Had it fixed in Bahrain for about $ and so far it has performed well and is particularly useful on location shoots (annual and sustainability shoots) over my 24-70 MK II. F4 isn't a problem for me. There has been mention of focusing rings jamming. I had a zoom ring jam on my old 24-70 MK I so I hope this doesn't happen on this lens, which performs well enough at present for what it has to do.
  • Pros: Versatile
  • Cons: Engineering Maybe

Old But Good

Rhett Morgan, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: This lens has been in production for sometime now, but for me it continues to be a great lens for landscape and nature photography. Its such a great lens to walk around with outdoors because of the focal length it gives you. It provides a wide angle while still being able to act as a short tele at the same time. Yes it is only an f4 lens, but for what I do outdoors there really is little need for anything greater.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Strong Construction, Versatile
  • Cons: Blurry edges, Lens Creep, Poor in Low Light

Great L Lens from Canon

Rod the Lightining, Adorama
3 June 2014
  • Excerpt: I lucked up and found this lens in the used department in perfect condition. This a great zoom lens, there's a reason it's the kit lens on the newer 5 D's. It's a sharp lens, not a 2.8, but at a maximum aperture of 4 it's still great. Arguably a better lens than the 24 - 70, this lens has Image Stabilization, which is a big plus. Quick autofocus, nice build quality, you won't be disappointed.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus
  • Cons: Poor in Low Light

Very good but...

  • Summary: The lens is very good and works just as it should. However, there was no warrantee card in it which threw up a red flag. Fortunately I was able to go to the Canon website and register the lens with no problem. The company that shipped the lens also charged me too much sales tax - their county % not mine and when I called them they abruptly told me I had to take it up with Amazon.

Used but not abused

Loolu, Adorama

  • Excerpt: I bought a V-level used lens first and although it produced wonderful images, it had one physical kink that I couldn't get over. So a week later I went back to Adorama, and the staff helped me chose a lens quality that fit what I was looking for. An E-rated lens was just right for me. No visible physical issues, perfect functionality, and again wonderful images.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction

Really High Qualiy Lens

Nate, B&H Photo
10 April 2014
  • Excerpt: This is the "kit" lens that came with my 6D. Whoa! The build quality is very nice. Good solid heavy feel. Image stabilizing. Macro. What else could you possibly ask for!? It would be nice if this lens was faster and could maintain that faster f/stop all the way through the focal range. But no one is perfect.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

  • Excerpt: I choose this lens instead of the kit lens for a new 70D. Far better image quality that the kit lens that came with my daughters SL1.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus
