Excerpt: Bought this from B&H back in January 2013. Have really started using it this Summer of 2015. I shoot film, especially Black and White. For outdoors photography I use an Orange filter primarily to make the sky dark and the clouds "pop".
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged
Excerpt: This lens has excellent sharpness and a focal length range that allows one to capture pretty much everything in a "walk around" situation. My kit is full of 2.8 L glass which is awesome but won't easily go on hikes or outings. This lens is perfect. The f4 is more than adequate in most situations.
Summary: I used this lens on a daily basis, i just loved. It's very sharp and have a very nice bokeh at f4. Their construction is very solid and works great on a crop sensor camera like my Canon 60D. It's very silent and fast in AF mode. The IS just works great! Highly recomended for all purposes.
Summary: This is my second "L" lens. I highly recommend this lens. I use it for outdoor, landscape and wildlife. I also used it foe indoor portraits, fast focus even indoors, handheld without flash. Good for videos too.
