Excerpt: Though its image circle will cover a 35mm negative, this is the lens Canon introduced with its EOS IX APS SLR . When used with the smaller APS format, it yields angles of view equivalent to that of 30-106mm lens on a 35mm camera. Aperture ranges from a reasonable f/3.5 at 24mm to a still-reasonable f/4.5 at 85mm. Admirably small and compact for a 35mm format zoom, the lens is huge and heavy compared to the (slower) 22-80 Minolta introduced with the Vectis S-1 .
Excerpt: Originally posted 2006-03-28 on Optyczne.pl The Canon EF 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5 USM is a middle-range priced lens with very promising parameters for photographers accustomed to the analog bodies. With its 24mm focal length the field of view reaches 84deg, thus making the lens great for landscape work, as well as a very good lens for interior pictures and could even pass admirably for journalism.
Cons: weak resolution at 85mm focal length, visible coma
Summary: Na pierwszy rzut oka instrument wydaje się warty zainteresowania. Jest to bowiem klasyczna lornetka Porro o dobrych parametrach i wielowarstwowych powłokach w przyzwoitej cenie. Po głębszym przyjrzeniu się mankamenty wychodzą jednak jak na dłoni.
