GENERAL PURPOSE

Bill From The Hill, B&H Photo
12 March 2015
  • Excerpt: The reviews on this lens were not good 2 years ago as was the case with the 18 -135 also.It think it is asking to much of a lens to expect much in performance with such a wide range of barrel lengths.
  • Cons: Lens Creep

Good Walk Around Lens

Mike, B&H Photo
9 March 2015
  • Excerpt: I do mainly sports with long Canon zooms. I needed an inexpensive walk around lens that was smaller, lighter and would't knock things down in tight places. It's not quite a good as the more expensive Canon mid zooms, but does a great job for the price.
  • Pros: 70-200 28 Is Zoom, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Id Mk Iv, Lightweight
  • Cons: Lens Creep, Poor in Low Light

Great improvement over the 18-55 kit

Dave, B&H Photo
5 March 2015
  • Excerpt: I use this lens, as an amateur (if even that), instead of the 18-55 kit lens that came with my beginner Rebel T3. The lens creep is a given due to its weight, but the problem is easily solved with a thin rubber band. It is typical Canon quality.
  • Pros: Durable, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy, Lens Creep

Nice zoom except it expand by itself

24 February 2015
  • Excerpt: It is a nice lens and it is versatile. The only downside of it for now, it expand by itself when the camera is in a face down position like when I use my BlackRapid strap. I contacted Canon and they said me it is normal.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Versatile
  • Cons: Weak Casing

Zoom moves when pointed down

Robert, B&H Photo
15 February 2015
  • Excerpt: The lens doesn't seem to do well in low light. When the lens is pointed down, it has insuffient friction to maintain the zoom. So if you point it down, it zooms out fully. I find this highly irritating. In good light, it performs well throughout its length.
  • Cons: Lens Creep, Poor in Low Light
