Quality is what counts

Malagodi, Adorama
5 August 2014
  • Excerpt: Good, quality product that you'd expect from Canon. I found it much sharper in the corners compared to the less expensive Tamron competitor with both lenses at F4.<br />Glad I spent the little bit extra on the Canon.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Poor in Low Light

Good and sharp, but very expensive.

Rich Z., Amazon
14 March 2014
  • Summary: I received my order quick, sooner than expected. I purchased it refurbished and can say in perfect shape, not a mark on it. The focus is fast and sharp on my Canon 6D. It also has a Macro feature although it's not 1 to 1. I really have no complaints except for the price. I think it's way overpriced, But it does have the red ring. I have a Tamron 17-35mm that's just as sharp and cost 1/4 the price brand new. One nice thing is it's weather sealed.

Unique, one of a kind lens

Fu Ziyi, Amazon
30 August 2013
  • Summary: I chose this lens over 24-105/F4 for its smaller size, better IS and macro mode and over 24-70/F2.8 II for smaller size, IS and cheaper price. A little over-priced, but worth the investment if don't want to get a Sigma or Tamron.

Sharp, versatile, small, and light -- a solid full-frame travel lens

D. Alexander, Amazon
20 March 2013
  • Summary: This is a wonderful $800 kit lens that happens to be $1500*. You're paying for novelty and convenience. If you must have macro and can't bear to carry another lens, this is your buttered bread. Otherwise, pick up someone's unused 24-105/4L IS for a song and any separate macro. Or flip the 24-105 backwards in a pinch. * As of September 2014, this lens is now $1000 or less. Much, much more competitive.

Great performance, high price, and small aperture

Dan, Amazon
10 January 2013
  • Summary: Lets start with the positives. The lens is sharp and blows away the 24-105mm f/4 IS which struggled. The corners look especially better. AF maybe is slightly faster but only slightly. Vignetting looks better as well though this doesn't matter too much as software will take this out. Nothing earth shattering yet. The lens is smaller than the 24-105 as well which is nice, it has the pinch lens caps (thank God), however, the lens hood on mine was a little loose and creaked.

Besser als das EFS 17-55

C. Mayr "Webflieger", Amazon
2 May 2014
  • Summary: Weil mein EFS 17-55 Landschaften total grottig zeichnet (verronnene Blätter betrachtet bei 100% Vergrößerung usw), habe ich mir dieses Teil zugelegt. Bislang bin ich sehr zufrieden! Man sieht jeden einzelnen Ast und selbst die Blätter sind schön gezeichnet, soweit das halt möglich ist.Der Härteeinsatz kommt jedoch erst Mitte Mai.

Habe es an meine D7 bin sehr zufrieden!

Ich, Amazon
31 March 2014
  • Summary: Ich hab für meine Canon D7 ein L obiektiv gesucht und endlich gefunden auch wenn meine Camera keine vollformat Camera ist der tausch gegen den standart 18-85 hat sich gelohnt! Die bilder sind viel schärfer und die farben kräftiger gesamtbild viel klarer und für den 18-85 ger habe ich noch 350€ bekommen so musste ich nur noch 650€ für den neuen hinblättern. Macro function hat mann auch und ich habe jetzt beim fotografieren viel mehr spass!

Dure lens met zeer matige kwaliteit

A.H. de Wilde, Koudekerke, cameranu.nl
31 January 2014
  • Excerpt: Ervaring van 6 maanden en vele honderden foto's, zowel full frame als APS-C (5D Mark III en 7D). Heb er portretten van kinderen mee gemaakt. De macrofunctie is nauwelijks nuttig. Die werkt wel, maar je zit te dicht op het onderwerp.
  • Pros: Gemakkelijke standaardlens voor allerlei doeleinden
  • Cons: Ernstig last van RSA (Residual Spherical Aberrations), Bij een brandpuntsafstand van ongeveer 50 mm zeer matige kwaliteit, bij groothoek en tele is de kwaliteit goed, Bij full frame zeer veel last van vignettering bij alle bruikbare diafragma's en alle brandpuntsafstanden
