Vignettes Bad

bchatt, B&H Photo
4 September 2014
  • Excerpt: Need this focal length and auto focus for certain type of product photographed with a white background. Vignettes Bad. Will have to look for better optics. Not to Canon Standards.

Not that sharp

Jim, B&H Photo
16 July 2014
  • Excerpt: Not as sharp as I thought it would be and the STM motor turned out to be as loud as the motor on a Canon 50mm/2.5 macro lens.

worse than 50/1.8II, F/2.8 is nothing to write home about, yes it is small

D. Brodsky, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this lens the moment it came out and compared and constrasted it with my 50/1.8 II, by shooting both Canon 7D and Canon 5D Mark II, with this alongside 50/1.8 II. It was not even a contest, 50/1.8 is a much better lens that produces better photographs.

Less than what I expected

Gilo, B&H Photo
12 August 2012
  • Excerpt: I got this lens after reading around fabulous reviews about its lack of distortion etc. But let me say first of all that my impressions may interest few people here because I am using it on an EOS3 film SLR and I have used it with only 4 rolls so far.

Focus makes a lot of noise

Nitin Krishna, Amazon
2 March 2016
  • Summary: A beautiful looking lens, that feels just perfect! However, the focus ring makes a great amount of noise, even while manually setting it. As a result, one of my shoot schedules near Sulya was almost ruined, with the entire footage replete with the motor's creaking noise.

  • Excerpt: Самый главный недостаток, это механика фокусировки. Она отличается от стандартных объективов тем что нет прямой связи кольца "фокуса" и самой линзы. Кольцо работает по принципу джойстика. Поворачиваешь кольцо, линза дает команду камере, и та уже моторчиком двигает линзу.
  • Pros: Компактные размеры (можно держать его постоянно на камере)
  • Cons: Система фокусировки

Pas de facture

Kom, Amazon
5 February 2014
  • Summary: Le vendeur refuse de fournir une facture, j'ai donc retourné l'objectif à Amazon pour remboursement. Cependant j'ai tout de même pu essayer celui-ci, rien à dire niveau qualité, le piqué est très bon, comparable au 50mm F/1.8, même si l'objectif reste assez bruyant pour du STM, ce qui pose un petit...
