Excerpt: I use this lens to shoot car shows and family functions. Its a great walk around lens. I love the bokeh on it and it produces "L" type lens quality shots. It's a bit heavy so be prepared for a bit of an arm workout. Worth it though!
Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh
Excerpt: I use this lens in close quarters and dim light so it provides a sharp wide angle with very little distortion and is able to capture details in subtle lighting situations. I would highly recommend this lens to someone who is on a budget but needs a versatile wide-angle zoom lens.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: Wow! Incredibly sharp and clear lens! Much clearer even than my prime lens. See the comparison image I posted. The image stabilizer locks the images into focus. Great lens short of buying a L lens!
Excerpt: Own an EOS t4i, and after my wife dropped the stock lens needed a new one. Decided to upgrade. I don't know much about lenses, but the reviews I read online said this was the best for everyday use. Been using about 2 weeks and glad I upgraded.
Excerpt: I bought this lens primarily for video because of it's consistent f/2.8 throughout the zoom range and it's sturdy image stabilization. Paired with my c100 mkii, I am getting stable images that are sharper than my other "gold ring" canon primes, plus the autofocus latches quickly and accurately.
Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Sharpness, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I use this lens for outdoor photography - both landscape and nature. The color and sharpness are unsurpassed. It's all great except for the weight. Be ready to use two hands for holding, where one hand might have been enough before.
Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged, Strong Construction
