An "OK" general purpose lens.

  • Summary: An "OK" general purpose lens. Lite weight, but feels "cheaply constructed".

Petite size, fast AF & great for travel

P.K. Frary, Amazon

  • Summary: This zoom debuted in 1996 as the kit lens for the EOS IXE/IX (APS). It was a popular lens well into the new millennium, but was finally discontinued in 2009. Due to its range and small size, the EF 24-85 3.5-4.5 USM enjoyed tours of duty as a travel lens on my EOS A2E, Elan 7E, 10D, Rebel XTi, 5D and 40D. I've got a lot of sharp 11x14 prints on my wall from this petite optic. Polycarbonate construction, but with a metal mount, keep it to a featherweight 380 g (13.4 oz).

A Great Walkaround and Event Photography Lens

Andrew Young, Amazon
7 January 2013
  • Summary: I've used this lens for nine years for product, wedding, event, portraiture, and fine art shooting. Here are my thoughts: Pros: * For a full-frame zoom, it's very compact * Also, MUCH lighter than the EF 24-70mm F/2.8 L if you can do without the 1-stop difference (it's just 12 ounces vs 2.2 POUNDS in your bag) * Good close focusing (19.7 inches at all focal lengths), useful for product shots * Compatible with EVERY Canon EOS/EF camera body--I've used it on the Elan 7...

Nice bang for the ...you know what!

Dont.trip, Amazon
12 December 2012
  • Summary: Purchased lens on Amazon and everything went just fine. Lens arrived in peach condition. Everything on the lens functions as it should and for the money; it gives a good focal range. Pictures taken with it are wonderful. The only reason it does not get a 5 is because, well I guess it isn't L glass. But, if you are starting out; you can't beat it. I would definitely recommend this to a friend.

Best bang for the buck lens you can buy

Fremen "O", Amazon
3 December 2012
  • Summary: This lens isn't being made anymore, but you can still buy it used. It is a gem of a lens. I started photography with a Rebel xsi, then went to a Rebel T1i and finally a 5D Mark II. The single change in my gear that made the most difference was buying a flash, but second to that was this lens. This lens is exceptionally sharp. The focus motor is quiet and fast. and its extremely light. Did I mention the colors and sharpness? They are outstanding.

Canon EF 24-85mm f/3.5-2.4 USM

neil s., Amazon
9 May 2012
  • Summary: I love this lens and use it extensively on my T3, it is my go to lens for most situations except where I need telephoto qualities. Wide open it is wide enough for me to do small group portraits relatively easily and at full zoom it covers my basic outdoor needs. The lens is also sharp throughout it's range.

  • Summary: I have been doing professional photography for the last ten years. I used this as my primary lens on my backup camera. It is a great all purpose walk around lens. I never had any complaints or issues with it. Would highly recommend it to anyone looking for an all purpose lens.
