Summary: No joke, I ran over this thing during a busy film day with my Chevy 3500. Felt a "bump" while backing up, and was immediatly horiffied to become aware that my camera bag was not in the truck with me. I hopped out, and sure enough, ran over the bag with the lens inside.
Summary: This is a great wide angle lens that I used to use on my Canon 30D, now on a 7D. It has held up to a few years of rough use, so I couldn't be happier. Only issue I have is when using the integrated flash and hood (you get a shadow along the bottom of the image). This is to be expected though.
Summary: I have never had such mixed feelings about a photography product. Overall, it's still the most-used lens in my arsenal of 5 lenses, but it has a flaw that drives me up the wall. It can't autofocus worth a damn. If I aim at something 15 feet away, it will usually focus at about 3-5 feet.
Summary: this thing is a BEAST. I've dropped, gone climbing with it, bounced it off rocks, and it keeps trucking. Pictures are crisp and effortless. Sure it's heavy, but it has to be in order to be so awesome.
Summary: I am an amateur photographer. I live in a 7 months long overcast town. I bought this lens to get more light in. I like this lens every way you look at it. It is actually sharp and it is light. To walk around, I carry this lens and my 35mm. Do not need much more than these!
Summary: This lens is super sharp, has great color and contrast, and the ultra wide angle is fun to shoot with, all at a bargain price! Has just enough weight to feel solid, but not too heavy. I'd buy it again in a heartbeat.
Summary: I have used this lens for several years now and I am extremely satisfied with it. I consider the image quality excellent and it is built like a tank. I have to admit that I do not use this lens for the majority of my photography but, only when I need an ultra wide lens for my Canon 1.6x cameras.
Summary: This is an amazing lens. I never owned a Canon L lens but I think this lens must be equal in quality, or close to it. The quality of this lens makes a big difference in the outcome of my photos. It's a little heavy compared to my other lenses but well worth the bother to have it along.
