Canon EF-S 15-85mm f3.5-5.6 IS USM

Camera Labs

  • Summary: A worthy successor to the EF-S 17-85mm IS USM, the new lens boasts a flexible walk-around range with wider-angle coverage equivalent to 24mm, a slightly brighter aperture when zoomed-out, very respectable optical quality (especially at 15mm), along with build quality that's as good as any non-L lens...
  • Pros: Flexible range including 24mm coverage., Sharp details into the corners., Quick and quiet USM AF with non-rotating barrel., Smooth manual focusing ring and distance window.
  • Cons: Poor vignetting with visible darkening in corners., Modest image stabilisation in our tests., Some creep between 24 and 50mm (actual)., As usual for a non-L lens, no hood supplied.

  • Conclusion: The EF-S 15-85mm’s unusually wide zoom range and high optical quality make it a good match for high-end cameras like the EOS 50D and 7D.

  • Summary: During testing, this lens has proved itself a capable successor to the popular EF-S 17-85mm IS USM. Although it has some flaws, it is capable of producing excellent results, so long as the limitations of the lens are taken into account.
  • Pros: Useful zoom range
  • Cons: Distortion, Vignetting at 15mm, Flare and ghosting performance (no lens hood supplied)

Canon EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 USM IS - Review / Lens Test Report

  • Conclusion: The Canon EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 USM IS is certainly a desirable lens ... if you can get a good one (ours had a bit of QC issue). The resolution is generally very good from 15-50mm whereas you should expect some border softness at 85mm.
