PERFECT walkaround lens

Mari, Amazon

  • Summary: Very nice lens. I rented the 24-105 once it was OK, but this one is definitely superior. It's sharp, it's not huge and heavy like the f/2.8, and it works for almost anything. The macro feature works nicely. I used to rent a macro for every wedding and now I don't have to.

Great Value with Rebate; Fits My Needs

Thomas N. Gilmore, Amazon

  • Summary: I already have a 24-105mm L lens and love it, but after reading the many rave reviews on this lens and considering the $200 rebate I just had to order it. It completes my lens collection along with my other 70-200mm L.

Currently one of the best standard zoom options

Adam, B&H Photo
8 June 2015
  • Excerpt: Had I bought this at its original introductory price, I very likely would have returned it, but its current pricing makes it an appealing and viable option for a standard, walkabout lens on FF (I'm using it on a 6D).
  • Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Focus shift

I am happy with it

George, B&H Photo
19 May 2015
  • Excerpt: This is my first L lens for my Canon 60D. Comparing to the kit lens, this lens shows noticeable sharper as expected. Indeed, you may find better lens, like the Canon 24-70mm F/2.8L, but nearly cost double. Bottom line is you get what you pay. I am happy with it.

Great lens for general use, USM may need repairs

Amazon Customer, Amazon
5 May 2015
  • Summary: The lens is a excellent for general use. After a few months I noticed that the lens had difficulty in focusing at infinity. I sent it in to Canon for warranty repair. They did find that the USM module was not working properly and replaced it.

Great for Sony a7s

Bob, B&H Photo
29 April 2015
  • Excerpt: I bought this primarily to provide image stabilization on my Sony a7s in video mode when hand holding or on a monopod. Image quality was also a very high priority. I use a Metabones EF to E adapter which allows the camera to electronically set/read the aperture and provides power for the lens...

Great Lens!

John, B&H Photo
27 April 2015
  • Excerpt: I'm really enjoying this lens. Prior to a camping trip I rented this lens to test it, and LOVED it. The images are very clean and crisp on my 6D. I opted for the f4 over the f2.8 for a few reasons 1) the f4 costs significantly less money 2) I mostly shoot landscapes and my aperture is usually f8-f13...

Too Soft

Garyds "GDS", Amazon
19 April 2015
  • Summary: I am trying to decide whether the product is inferior or if I just didn't understand what I was buying, I am disappointed because the images are soft, the viewing angle is too narrow for landscapes. It does however work ok for portrait photography because you do not want tack sharp images of a face.
