Overpriced

Mindcontrol, Amazon
8 February 2014
  • 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

  • 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.

Portable, versatile lens w/ great IQ

  • Summary: This review is for a crop sensor DSLR. This is a great lens that can be used as a general purpose lens. It's not as tight as a 50mm and acts closer to a 35mm lens because of the crop factor. I wouldn't take close portraits or headshots with it (unless that's your style), but it's great for indoor use, tight areas and group photos. It can also be used for landscape photography.
  • Pros: Compact, Good build quality, Sharp, Sharp image quality
  • Cons: Chromatic aberration, Expensive, Hood Not Included

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.

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.

  • Conclusion: Litet, lätt och smidigt! Fungerar riktigt bra att filma med (IS), vilket också var avgörande för inköpet. Bra kontroll över distorsion, även om den finns där vid vissa motiv. Vinjetterar synbart på f/2.8 men rätt behagligt. Mittskärpan är riktigt bra på största bländaröppning och ok vid gyllene snittet. Två steg nedbländat så tycker jag att objektivet är riktigt skarpt, ända ut i kanterna. Har inte kollat så noga än, men den funkar fint på f/16 med.
  • Pros: Smidig, IS, skarp
  • Cons: f/2.8 och dess kantskärpa.

Hohe Auflösung, starke Vignette

Consternate, Amazon
31 March 2013
  • Summary: Wie andere Leute hier schon konstatiert haben, ist die Auflösung wirklich sehr gut. Ich hab ne zeitlang das 16-35mm II gehabt, dass ist nicht so gut bei 24mm (auch wenn der Unterschied klein ist). Der Stabilisator ist auch sehr nützlich, man sollte nicht unterschätzen, dass er es einem auch in nicht-Low-Light-Situationen ermöglicht, die Blende weiter zu schließen, um die Schärfe und Schärfentiefe zu erhöhen, alles bei ISO 100.
