Amazing lens

Jeff, B&H Photo
7 January 2015
  • Excerpt: I bought the lens for my Sony alpha 55 which is a full-frame camera and I wanted to add an ultra wide lens along with my other lenses. I am satisfied, I planned on using it for mostly outdoor features as well as other times when I need it. I think it's well made and feels great and solid right out of the box.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Lens Creep, Poor in Low Light

Very good lens to have.

Cisco, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: Hello, I bought this lens a while back. Here are the most obvious observations I've made from using this lens. The focus distance is great; you can be literally centimeters away from your subject and, it will still catch it in focus most of the time. This lens is wide! Ever since I bought this lens it has rarely seen its long focal length side. This lens is just insanely wide and, it is easy to forget that it's a zoom lens.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Difficult to Clean, Heavy, Poor in Low Light

Works great on. Y Blackmagic Cinema Camera

  • Summary: Works great on. Y Blackmagic Cinema Camera. It's not a fast lens, so don't expect greatness in low light. I wasn't expecting good low light performance so it has no impact on my rating.

Great addition to the family

  • Summary: Amazing picture great build. I used it with my T2i but now have upgraded to a 70D... big jump I know. I can't wait to take it out this weekend and take some quality photos! Be wary that if you plan on taking shots with built-in flash completely wide you will often get a shadow from the hood.

Sharp but prone to lens flare

X3MAN, B&H Photo
2 October 2014
  • Excerpt: Coming back from a trip to Europe where I made an extensive use of this lens. Gives consistent sharp results at every focal length, but the lens is prone to lens flare, for photos taken outside as well as inside. Very annoying. Almost every photos taken with the lens has a lens flare in it that needs computer retouching. Real rating is 3.5/5 stars. The lens gives nevertheless good results in terms of sharpness, bokeh, colors, but the lens flare is definitively an issue.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Nice Bokeh
