Great walk-around/travel lens!

  • Excerpt: If you want to travel light, then this is a great lens to get. It's not the fastest lens but at 2.8 is good for most applications. Looking forward to traveling with this lens next month.

  • Excerpt: You know what you're getting with this lens. Crisp, clear shots. The focus ring is really smooth but turns a bit too slowly for really fast shots.

I Like This Lens

Bob Franks, B&H Photo
18 March 2015
  • Excerpt: I am quite impressed with the quality of this lens, both opticaly and build. I use this lens a a general walk around lens and is very usefull for this. The only thing I don't like about this lens is the manual focus operation. Since it's focus by wire you have to half press the shutter button and then you can turn the focus ring to change focus. If there's no movement of the focus ring for 5 seconds you have to half press the shutter button again to continue focusing.
  • Pros: Build quality, Lightweight, Optical quality
  • Cons: Manual Focus

My family day go-to lens

Kurtis M. Miller, Amazon
3 March 2015
  • Summary: I have used this lens on my full frame 6D and crop 60D cameras and am impressed I that I spent so little money for such a great performer. It is small and the focus is slow-ish but it gets great results!

2 March 2015
  • Excerpt: Has replaced my old 50 1.8 as a daily driver. Lightweight, nearly as fast, discreet and the stepping motor is absolutely silent. Well worth adding to your kit.

Only used it for a few shots, but so far it performs very well.. Nice to have in you pocket if you're on a long walk with a telephoto and need this kind of lens...

Great Little Lens

Alex, B&H Photo
13 February 2015
  • Excerpt: Combine this lens with Canon 6D and you have a full frame compact that shoots 4.5 FPS and has an insane ISO. Files are sharp, colors true, focus is accurate. I do not think that anything touches this combination in the marketplace whether it is from image quality, size or price stand point. What a great lens.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
