  • 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.

Canon EF USM 24-85mm F 3.5-4.5 Lens

  • Summary: I have read many reviews about this lens and most of them were good, which is why I bought it. I had no idea as to how good it really is. It needs to be stopped down to f8 and it becomes razor sharp. This is a very good lens except for a little zoom creep but I can live with that.

Best bang for the buck lens you can buy

  • 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.

Canon Zoom 100-400mm

  • Summary: I own the Nikon 80-400mm VR zoom which I use on my D3 and D700. Recently I added a Canon 7D and wanted a similar zoom for it. I have used the Canon a lot this winter and the lens is very good. It is not as sharp at 400mm , a bit soft at its zoom extreme.

  • Conclusion: This is a great walkaround lens on my 1D Mark II N. Very good focal length range means that I can put it on the camera and take nothing else with me unless I really need to shoot ultra wide angles. Even when used alongside the 70-200 and the wideangle lenses it finds its uses.
  • Pros: great range, sharp, compact,
  • Cons: build quality not stellar

  • Conclusion: I bought this lens on Ebay for $129 wanting a lighter, smaller alternative to my Tokina 28-70mm f/2.6-2.8 lens. I use the lens on my Canon 1D MKII camera which has a 1.3x crop factor, making the effective focal length of this lens 31mm to 110mm.
  • Pros: Price, performance, weight
  • Cons: plastic

  • Conclusion: This lens can be very sharp. Most of the time is very sharp, and it is very inexpensive. This is one of those lenses one needs to know about if one is shooting crop. The 24mm wide end is significantly wider than the 28 of other alternatives, it is USM, and at least on a crop sensor (7D) the images...
  • Pros: Size, sharpness, cost, relatively fast.
  • Cons: No IS, older design.

Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS

  • Summary: I bought this lens used and used it for about 2 months. I had a couple fall day trips planned and I wanted something to reach a little farther than my 70-200mm. I picked this lens because there are one or two other long zooms I plan to try and I feel this lens was the standard to compare them to in...

  • Conclusion: I use this lense on a 5D-I. It is small, light and the 24-85 range is very useful on a full frame camera. Optically it is OK but not great. For landscape shots it needs to be stopped down to F11, and even then the corners still look smeared at most focal lengths.
  • Pros: Small, light weight, good range
  • Cons: optical quality could be better
