Pricey - but a very good full frame lens

  • 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. Thanks Canon--and Amazon! I will use this lens mostly for landscape duties at medium apertures. There is a respected lens testing website that shows this lens as good but "not tack sharp".

Great event lens.

  • Excerpt: Love this lens! I often shoot Holiday events and it's great for small groups or individuals up close. Sharp, light weight, non-intrusive, and fast focus. I previously used a 50mm and 70-200 but this lens allows me to mingle in the party and still get full length photos with surrounding atmosphere, or step up close.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Strong Construction

Light and sharp

  • Excerpt: One, if not the sharpest lens in my bag.It's very light and quiet and only shows a little bit of a vignette effect when used totally wide open (f/2.8) - nothing that cannot be fixed in post. Lightroom already comes with the profile for this lens and corrects everything nicely. IS is cool when using the lens for video.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh

Great Little Lens for the Money

  • Excerpt: Five stars from me for this lens for sharpness, speed, and image stabilizing. I bought this lens primarily for crowd shots and large group shots. However, it's also great for street photography: It's not intimidating and enables one to capture the subject's surroundings very well, which helps to tell the story. It's very lightweight, so you could shoot all day and not tire. It's made of metal where it counts and is undeniably superior to the 50mm 1.8.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Strong Construction

Takes some cool shots and great real estate/landscape lens

Phillippia F., Amazon
22 September 2014
  • Summary: Had this lens for a little over a month. The wider angle helps me get entire interior rooms of the house in a single shot. Before multiple shots would be needed to photograph rooms. When photographing people, it's capable of creating some cool effects (fisheye-like but not as extreme). For example, I can photograph my own feet and they look like they are 15-20 feet away instead of less than six. Another effect is enlarged body parts...

Awesome Lens! Great Buy! Would buy again

  • Excerpt: I currently use this lens with my Canon 6D. I absolutely love this lens. It is exactly what I have been wanting to by able to do astrophotograpy, as well as landscapes. I just recently used it for some shots of fireworks over a lake. I was able to capture the reflection as well as the actual firework. I am extremely happy with my purchase!
