Excerpt: Sharpness doesnt exactly blow your hair back, but it opens up to f2.8 all the way across, which not something you typically see in this price point. I shoot on an APS-C camera, so being able to go that wide is great when I want to throw the background out of focus - not so easily done with a smaller...
Excerpt: I bought this as an upgrade to my 18-55 kit lens that came with my T1i. I planned on using as my everyday lens. The first thing I noticed about this is that it is much heavier than my Canon kit lens...probably a good thing (better quality), but taking a bit to get used to.
Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus
Excerpt: I needed a lens for doing indoor photography at a work conference. The 2.8 worked nicely and I also used my external flash I was very pleased with the photos it took and the cost of the lens made it even better!
Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
Excerpt: I was lucky to pick up a used version of this lens for $280 for use with my Canon 5D Mark III (as a general walk around lens).I just couldn't see myself spending $[$] for the Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II nor did I have the money for it.I agree with the other comments here on sharpness.
Excerpt: I like it- but I thought it had image stabilization. So in low light, it needs a tri-pod. Bummer for me. What would be the idle carry lens would be the 28-270 with the lower 2.8 with VI. That would be so sweet!
Excerpt: In the limited use I have had it seems fairly equivalent to the 28-135 Canon lens I had. Focus could be sharper but I really am still getting familiar with the lens. I traded off IS to get the 2.8 F stop--i think it is a lens that I will grow to like and for the price I probably can't complain.
