  • Excerpt: I am a wedding videographer and I shoot with DSLR (70D) for creative shots. This lens rocks! 1.8 at 18-35 is insane!! Works fluidly, is sharp (sharper than my prime 50mm 1.4 and quiet. Better than any of my Canon glass. it is my go to lens. I was in a car accident and the my last 18-35 was crushed.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

Fast, Sharp and well built!

  • Excerpt: My Canon 7D seems like a different camera with this lens. Twice the light of my EF 17 - 55mm f2.8. It doesn't reach as far, but it's sharper than the Canon lens. It's not unusual to see higher T-stops than F-stops for a fast lens on DXOmark, but they're BOTH 1.8 for this lens.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction, Very Sharp

Fast and Sharp

  • Excerpt: Bought this lens a few months ago with a 70d and it's a great combination. Fast focus and excellent sharpness. I've only printed a few pictures but they come out with amazing quality. I even got a clear shot of the galaxy core with this lens in NH. Even at f/1.8 it's very sharp.

  • Excerpt: I picked this lens up, Im using it with the GH4 and the canon Metabones xl adapter. The results from camera, mount and lens have been better than expected.

Stellar But Limited

David-eye, B&H Photo
7 July 2015
  • Excerpt: Because of the superb build and image quality of this ground-breaking lens, I must give it a 5 star rating. Having said that, I ended up returning it. Even though this beauty is impressive in so many ways, because I shoot with both FX and DX Nikon cameras, I found the weight, size and short zoom...

Best lens for DX. Period.

Albert, B&H Photo
26 June 2015
  • Excerpt: This lens has some of the most creamiest bokeh I've ever seen. I was about to get a D750, but this lens + D5300 can create some magic. yes, there's art lens for FX. But add the cost of FX camera + both art lens, and you easily are 3x the price of DX combo. Don't just use this lens at f1.8.

Slow Focus, Front Focused at 18mm, Sharp w/ Fast Aperture

Wes Craft Photography, B&H Photo
24 June 2015
  • Excerpt: I really want to love this lens and when it's in focus it's phenomenal. 1.8 zoom?? I can't believe this exists. I've been saying for years that if Canon made a 16-50 f/2 I'd never take it off of one of my cameras. This gets me close enough albeit it only works on crop sensor cameras...
  • Pros: Aperture, Easily Interchangeable, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Front focus, Slow Focus

Great Glass for Video

Handspun Cinema, B&H Photo
24 June 2015
  • Excerpt: This lens gets used on our C100 and C300 and is exceptionally sharp. Wonderfull autofocus with the DualPixel AF on both cameras. This has replaced our Zeiss 35mm f/2 without a doubt.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction
