  • Excerpt: Love this lens, but didn't realize it was not weather resistant until it was too late. Took this out in a drizzle, destroyed my 5d ii body when the water got inside. Don't take this one out in the rain or dusty/sandy conditions.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Nice Bokeh
  • Cons: Heavy

The Lens that Could've Been

Ricardo Gomez Photography, B&H Photo
29 June 2015
  • Excerpt: Just finished using this lens and think it's time to submit my review especially to compare it with it's siblings. I think this focal-range should be in every photography's case. It's so useful in many scenarios. From portrait to wildlife to event photography. One of the best values for sure.
  • Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Blurry Focus, Heavy

HEAVY!

Stretch, Adorama

  • Excerpt: I bought this lens to use at outdoor weddings... but unfortunately I am unable to get a sharp image. It's not the quality of the lens (the ones that were in focus were amazing), it's the fact that I cannot hold it still enough because it is so heavy. I am returning this lens.
  • Pros: Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy
