  • Excerpt: I was excited to get this lens after reading all the great reviews. It's built well and does a great job in low light. I used it for a outdoor concert at night and was very pleased. I did have to boost the clearity in PP a little but it is pretty sharp.
  • Pros: Durable, Lightweight

  • Excerpt: I've had this lense for a few weeks now, and so far it has served it's purpose! The only two things that I have noticed that autofucus is not very quick in low light, and autofucus is also a little soft around the edges. Other than that great lense!

  • 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.

  • 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.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
  • Cons: Slow Focus

  • Excerpt: With the exception of small flaring issues this is a great entry level lens. I can recommend it if you are in a budget - like I was - but don't expect cutting edge quality.
