Absolutely great!

  • Excerpt: Great lens for the price! Wide enough to capture an interview subject in a small room without the image warping or looking too wide. Just what I needed.

Wonderful Lens

Josh the Videographer, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: This lens has been a life saver on more than one occasion. It allows me to get a lot closer to my subject than my other lenses, which is necessary for some of my shoots. The bokeh is nice and the stabilization is great to have as well. It's one of my favorite lenses.

Canon EF 24mm f/2.8 IS USM review by MichaelShea

18 January 2015
  • Summary: From my own extensive research of the worldwide web, I fully expected this lens to be somewhat inferior to its 35mm f2 similarly image stabilised sibling, which in fairness would have been far easier to construct.
  • Pros: Fairly lightweight and compact; near silent, precise autofocus; attractive colours; extremely effective image stabilisation; low distortion
  • Cons: Lens hood is essential but not provided; adequate sharpness but not outstanding

Great Lens

B. Roberts, Amazon
6 January 2015
  • Summary: Super sharp, small, and with IS!!! This lens is great for so many purposes. I used it on a crop sensor Canon Rebel camera, and it was plenty wide enough for most uses. I'm not a fan of ultra-wide perspective, and for me, this focal length is just about as wide as I'd ever want to go (in most...

Nice lens

  • Excerpt: This is a nice walk-around lens, but it was giving a bit too much distortion, mainly due to the wide angle. So I returned it. But it's a nice lens to have in the bag for a day out, or for hiking, etc … when you want to lighten your load, but still want to take some quality photos.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Nice Bokeh

Sharp, compact, and a pleasure to use.

  • Summary: I adore this little lens. As others have already stated, it's sharp and renders colors beautifully. I've had the opportunity to use it in a few weddings, maternity shoots, and corporate events - photos of venues, large groups of people, and environmental portraits were all taken with this lens.

Pricey - but a very good full frame lens

Rick Scarborough, Amazon
12 November 2014
  • Summary: I upgraded from the older Canon EF 24mm. I have informally "tested" them side by side. This newer version is sharper with better contrast and color at all apertures in all areas of the field on a full frame camera. The stabilizer is handy and focusing is quick and near silent.
