Excerpt: This lens came with our Canon C100. After reading several reviews I was wary of using it for big jobs, but I must say that this is a good every day lens. I've always been a big proponent of Sigma lenses, but I have found this to be comparable.
Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Sharp
Excerpt: I really like this lens, and i'm very glad to have it in my arsenal. The sharpness, combined with the great focal range (especially on aps-c sensor cameras) make this my go to lens in most cases.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I'm using this lens on a Sony FS-700 and it seems to perform quite well indeed as a "standard" lens for my style of run and gun shooting. I appreciate how close it focuses and the OIS works to keep shots smooth. With the requisite Metabones Speed Booster, it's good in low light.
Pros: Consistent Output, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
... ringed beauties from canon thinking "well really how much better can it really be
31 July 2015
Summary: I always resisted spending out the extra cash on these red ringed beauties from canon thinking "well really how much better can it really be, is it really worth the extra cash!!".. I decided to get one after a long time and as these lenses will not break your bank to much i went ahead and got it.
Excerpt: I have this lens had over several years. I have 5D MARK III and tested many lens of prime and zoom of Canon, plus Zeiss (from 15mm to). And the conclusion is this is very versatile for the traveler. I constantly travel from state the another and / or another countries.
Excerpt: The F4 is a fairly light comfortable lens to use for street shooting and the results look crisp. I had been on a trip using a Canon 85 and a kit lens and found the 85 cut people off -- I was too accustomed to a zoom. This seems a nice fit and a little more length that the zoom that tops out at 70mm.
Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Fast Light Good Range, Lightweight, Rugged
