Summary: My husband and I wanted to get a len that can be used when we upgrade our current camera in the near future. I have many friends who are good at pic shooting recommending this same len to use. Very nice work after We tried it, definitely love this purchase!
Excerpt: The lens was well put together. It had a nice feel to it. I didn't care for the macro because I already have the 100mm lens which performs much better. I felt the lens was rather limited in reach. If you don't already have the macro lens this lens might be a very nice addition.
Excerpt: I just purchased the lens and havent used it much yet (reason for 4 stars). <br />Out of the box and on the camera (Canon 5D Mark III) - the lens has some heft, but it's solidly built; the "lock" feature is great (no lens extending when in the down position); image quality appears to be very good.<br />With today's high ISO's available and processing software the f4 has not been an issue thus far.<br />After more use I'll do an update.
Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction
Conclusion: Bought this lens to use with EOS 6D. Couldn't be happier. IS and max F/4 aperture keeps less experienced photographers out of trouble. Image quality is first rate. Reasonably light, great vacation lens. Had this lens for a year now, use it as the main lens for my 6D.
Excerpt: Used mainly for landscape, wildlife, sightseeing photography. Still too expensive but best option for size, weight, quality and features. Concern for f/4 shooting inside did not pan out since raising iso even to max)gave satisfactory results.
Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Strong Construction
Excerpt: Nice lens, a bit sharper than my 70-200mm f/2.8 (not II) at 70mm. Good carry lens, with less distortion/vignetting than the 24-105 but with arguably a shorter range in exchange. For me a perfect size/weight for carrying on the 6D as an all-purpose lens.
Excerpt: This is my first "L" lens from Canon. I was looking at this and the f/2.8 24-70mm lens for quite some time. After careful review of my photographic style I decided the f/4 24-70 IS would be a better fit for me, not to mention the cost savings. I am completely happy so far. Yes, another stop would be nice but that is the only real benefit that I could see with the f/2.8 lens. I find this lens to be very sharp and it has very good color rendition.
Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged
