Excerpt: This lens feels great on my 7D. I like the large diameter of the lens. There is a good balance between the weight of the lens and the camera body. I upgraded from a 17-85mm to this 15-85mm. Believe it or not, it is really nice to have the extra few millimeters of wide angle.
Excerpt: Great lens with a super useful zoom range. I was looking for a lens to use 90% of the time, and this is it. It's got some weight to it but it sure beats walking around with 2 lenses. The only thing i can't figure out is why an $ lens comes with an 8 cent lens cap.
Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction

Summary: We love this lense as a "leave on the camera" for a grab and go lens for most situations. True, it will be heavier than your kit lens, but it's not that bad and the results are more what you bought your quality camera for. If I could only have one lens and could "only" spend $800, this would be it.
Excerpt: I've been using this lens for over a year and I'm so happy with its performance in terms of well built and quality pictures. I only shoot outdoors and for those Who shoot outdoors I would strongly recommend Lens hood and a Circular PL.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: This Lens is one of the best lenses I've bought.it works fine in low light environments, like bars or at night, as well as when I'm out shooting a video under controlled circumstances.its a bit heavy but it feels robust and you can feel the quality in it.
Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I purchased this lens to take product photos that require "overall" as well as Close-up detail shots. The range is nearly perfect, wish Canon had this range in their "L" Series Lenses, but this one is great for the price. With the auto stabilization, even handheld photos turn out great.
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Versatile zoom range
Get this lens, even if you already have what you think will serve you well.

Summary: Although one can find lenses with better laboratory test results when it comes to MTF charts, vignetting, chromatic aberration and other such results, it is much easier to see why this lens gets 5-stars when rated by users and as shown by reviews on the Canon USA site.
Excerpt: I've finally found my everyday walk around lens. I find this covers most situations and is a much nicer lens than the kit lens that came with my T5i. I was surprised with the weight of the lens, it is quite heavy. Between this lens and my little nifty fifty I've got a set up Im really happy with.
Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction
