  • Excerpt: After reading the reviews , I was expecting excellent performance. Not so. My copy of this lens failed to perform in every category except noise where it excelled and zoom/focus that was very good. Took it back.

Disappointed

Richard Lee, Amazon

  • Summary: Had it shipped 2nd day for a trip I was taking. I wanted a silent lens for videos with my T4i and this lens failed. Maybe I received a defect. It did not always focused properly during video and stills. It would not focus on distant objects in intelligent auto mode. The lens went crazy. It was able to focus on distant objects in any of the manual modes.

Repairs needed

  • Summary: When I first got this lens, I assumed it was me that wasn't using the image stabilizer correctly. I even called tech support at Canon and they said it can operate "differently" because of the STM, which was a new feature. But with three other IS lenses, all high-end, no matter what I tried, I wasn't getting a clear picture. Finally, I sent it, along with my Canon 7D camera in to Canon for repair (the 7D was acting up anyway).

not worth the price

  • Summary: i got this lens bundled with Canon 60D, bought from a local dealer. been using this lens for the last 2 years now. before this i had a canon 1000D with 18-55 lens kit and it was working quite good but i needed to upgrade for technical purposes. to begin the review, this is a quite average lens, it saves you the trouble of carrying two lenses but it has got its bag of problems. the distortion specially at the edges is quite prominent through out the focal range.

Sharp pictures ?????

  • Summary: Try as I could I was unable to obtain really sharp photo's, they were perhaps passable but I was not satisfied. It could have been just this particular lens, I was able to return it to Amazon for a full credit, THANKS AMAZON.

Für Videos ausreichend - Für Fotos absolut mangelhaft

Saller2, Amazon

  • Summary: Ich habe mich vom Namen Canon blenden lassen !!! Für meine EOS 70D wollte ich natürlich auch ein original Objektiv. Diese Entscheidung habe ich ganz schnell bereut. Im 18 mm Bereich habe ich kein einziges scharfes Foto erzielt. Im 135 mm Bereich waren die Bilder ganz brauchbar, mehr aber nicht. Videos waren ebenfalls in Ordnung. Selbst das einfache Kit-Objektiv macht tausendmal bessere Fotos. Schade, denn die STM Technologie hätte mir schon sehr gut gefallen.

Bitte genau prüfen!

  • Summary: Das Objektiv ist an sich gut verarbeitet und liegt ebenso gut in der Hand. Auch die Mechanik des mir gelieferten Exemplares war zufriedenstellend. Eigentlich ein guter Kauf. Eigentlich... Jedoch zeigte mein Objektiv bereits nachdem auspacken deutliche Staubablagerungen im Inneren. Ok, etwas Staub läßt sich nicht vermeiden und macht auch in der Regel keine Probleme.

Décevant

titgnskizo, Amazon
17 January 2013
  • Summary: Après plusieurs mois d'utilisation, je peux conclure que cet objectif est quasiment tout le temps décevant. Il est certes polyvalent, mais pas vraiment bon en tout et surtout pas en paysage. Le négatif : - Le piqué n'est bon qu'entre f7 et f11. - un manque cruel de lumière (et si on ouvre pour avoir plus de lumière, on perd en piqué) - un manque de contraste par rapport à mon 50 mm Canon f1,8. On peut compenser avec Lightroom 5 mais pas complètement.
