Good and light weight performer

  • Excerpt: This lens was purchased to use with a 5DMIII for photo journalism and landscapes. Not great wide open (too much vignetting, visible bokeh fringing, not sharp enough), but very good by f/2.8 and excellent from f/4 to f/8 where it will be used most. Focusing is fast and sure. Stabilization is a relief to have indoors. Foreground bokeh can be a bit harsh in landscapes, but that is typical of the wide angle lenses that I have used. Overall build quality is fine.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Sharp Stopped Down

My New Favorite Lens!

  • Excerpt: I ordered this as a (much)smaller, lighter, cheaper alternative to a 24-70 f/2.8II. Trust me, it's as sharp as the f/2.8 zoom, plus it's a full-stop faster and it has IS! Honestly, I've read several reviews claiming that this should have been an L lens, and they're right, the build/image quality is that good. And the 24-70 has such a short range anyway, it's not that much of a compromise to take 1-2 steps forward or backward.

Great lens

  • Excerpt: I haven't used prime lens for sometime, I was caught up in easy to use zooms. This lens has reminded me as to how good primes are. I know that it isn't a L lens, but the sharpness, contrast and colors that come through make this a great lens. i use it on my 70D and 50D and I like it with the crop factor.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
