Vignettes Bad

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.
  • Pros: Lightweight
  • Cons: Weak Casing

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.
  • Pros: Lightweight
  • Cons: Blurry Focus

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. The nice thing about this lens is its size, weight and focal length. The autofocus seems just ok. Indeed (as per Canon advisory) sometimes it does stop working, but on a film camera it happens rarely.

Not as quiet as expected

  • Summary: It is a nice lense but bought this expecting it to be quiet when recording movies but you can hear the auto focus motor and also not as quick at focusing as I expected. But on the plus side does make the camera even more compact when used with this lense.

Super objectif

pelican, Amazon
28 December 2012
  • Summary: L'objectif en lui meme est super, il est genialissime. Petit, qualité nikel, je suis le plus heureux du monde photographique en ce moment, enfin un bon objectif a la taille de mon 100d. 2 etoile a cause de petit point, poussiere ou "pet" a l'interieur de l'objectif. Ce qui me fait dire que j'ai payé pas cher mais c'est un objectif d'occasion ou alors une série mediocre qu'ils vendent moins cher, je suis deçu par ce point la.

Pas de facture

Kom, Amazon
27 December 2012
  • 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 soucis en mode vidéo.

User Review

Panhrom, club.foto.ru
8 December 2012
  • Excerpt: Пытался накрутить резиновую бленду, хобот (выдвигающийся тубус) при этом сместился. С этого момента нельзя сказать что автофокус в отказе, он работает, но очень неохотно: сделает 5-6 коротких шажков импульсами и остановится не дойдя до цели. Надо сделать ещё полунажатие, чтоб он сдвинулся ещё на 5 шагов и т.д. После 4-х полунажатий он наконец достигает оптимума, а времени это занимает 3-4 секунды.
  • Pros: Резкий, маленький, дешёвый
  • Cons: Дрянной пластик. Металлический у него только байонет.
