  • Summary: Purchased this lens in hopes of using it for a photo shoot. Received lens and performed various tests at different focal lengths. I'm a pixel pusher so I was definitely not impressed with some of the test shots.

  • Summary: I was super excited about receiving this lens. After reading the reviews I thought it would be great. Once I received it and started taking the pictures, They were not clear. Most came out soft or blurry. I returned the item for a refund.

  • Summary: all i am going to say is three things: 1) its built like a tank 2) it weighs as much as a tank. seriously. this is the heaviest short zoom lens i have ever seen. far far far too heavy to carry around as a walk around lens. and... yup you guessed it...

  • Excerpt: I purchased this lens for an upcoming wedding. But after testing it for a couple of weeks I found that it simply wasn't sharp enough or consistent enough. I have sent it back and have ordered the Canon 34-70.

  • Pros: Compact size, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Blurry Focus

  • Excerpt: Думаю мне просто не повезло. Объектив был куплен через интернет магазин, поэтому выбирать не пришлось. Повелся на это стекло в результате прочтения предыдущих отзывов. Получил довольно симпатичный девайс, приятный на ощупь, но удивительно тяжелый.
  • Pros: Довольно компактен, приятен на ощупь.
  • Cons: Тяжелый, дорогие фильтры, мерзкое размытие, мыло, люфт.
