  • Summary: I want my lens to be 'tack-sharp'. The Canon 40mm pancake lens is incredibly sharp for the $$$. Having said that, this lens produces good picture, low distortion at the edges and sufficient clarity for teams and portraiture work. I'd have given it 5-stars it were a bit crisper.

Overpriced

Mindcontrol, Amazon

  • Summary: I'm gonna make this short and sweet. Yes it is a very nice lens. And it does have all of the perks that many of the websites and reviewers have mentioned, but for almost 600 bucks this thing is way too expensive. I'd be more interested in a tammy or sigma 17-50 2.8. I do own this lens but I don't think I'd pay that much again in the future for it.

Solid Performer

Kevin ODonnell "thread:post", Amazon
29 May 2013
  • Summary: On a Canon crop sensor camera, the focal length is pretty close to a 35mm equivalent. It's wide, but not too wide. With this focal length and aperture size I didn't expect much bokeh, but have been pleasantly surprised by it - not amazing, but reasonably smooth. The lens is solid and well built. It's not too heavy. With a battery grip on the camera and this lens, the weight is near perfect for me. I can use it all day with only a hand strap and don't get tired.

Very good except for the price

Coronet Blue, Amazon
29 April 2013
  • Summary: A while back, I got Nikon's 16-35 "VR" (vibration reduction) lens and was surprised at how useful it was to have a 16mm lens you can hand hold reliably at 1/4 second. Canon hasn't gotten around to this yet but in the meantime they've introduced 24 IS and 28 IS lenses. My main lens is the 24TS, but while preparing for a trip where I would have to shoot lots of interiors without flash or tripod, I decided to give the 24 IS a try, and several times it saved the day.

Wide-angle prime lens with image stabilization delivers good image quality

Gil De Sousa, LensTests-com, Amazon
18 July 2012
  • Summary: Please don't take the Amazon star rating too serious - every lens has its pros and cons that I wouldn't want to squeeze into a single one-dimensional figure... A quick note about me: I have been into SLR cameras and lenses for more than 20 years - as a hobby in the beginning and professionally later. Maybe because of my technical background I started testing my own lenses quite a while ago.

Manchmal sollte man 2mal nachdenken

G. Schumacher, Amazon
30 March 2014
  • Summary: Hallo, ich habe die Canon EOS 600D die deutlich mehr kann als ich. In der Grundausstattung war auch ein Set mit 18 - 55 und 55 - 250 mm enthalten. Hatte mir aber trotzdem das 24 gekauft bin aber nicht wirklich glücklich damit weil die unterschiede zum normalen 18 - 55 Objektiv für mich kaum ersichtlich sind. Würde ich jetzt nicht nochmals kaufen wollen.

Sehr gute Abbildungsleistung

Daniel Frank, Amazon
21 August 2013
  • Summary: Das Objektiv gefällt durch eine sehr gute Abbildungsleistung, kompakte Maße und durch den Bildstabilisator, der zusammen mit der Lichtstärke (und natürlich entsprechende ISO-Werte, die bei modernen DSLR möglich sind) ein Stativ bei Architekturfotographie innen und selbst bei Nacht nicht zwingend erforderlich macht. Verglichen mit meinem 17-40 4.0. L (natürlich bei 24 mm und bei allen Blenden verglichen) zeigt das 24 2.8.
