I purchased this lens to go with my 5D mk2, which is now converted to purely infrared. I usually go for prime lenses, so this lens for me is a general purpose workhorse that covers a good focal range while at the same time is tack sharp. Its not as heavy as the 24-70 and in landscape you'd scarce notice the difference as the quality of this lens is just about as good, and more forgiving. I can use the distortion it does have to effect in my images. And its tough.
A great all round lens. If you can only afford one lens, this has to be it. It works well in artificial light without using a flash. It is excellent for photographing people in small or large groups. It has a great range 24 to 105mm and it is selling at a good price at present.
I like not having to use a flash in lower light situations.
I would buy the product again - this is actually the second time I have bought this lens. The first time was second hand for over $1100. The second time was new for around $800.
I was looking for a lens to enable a better quality than the kit lenses but equally to give a better zoom range than the 18-55 lens, as it was inconvenient to regularly change to the 55-250 tele. This is my perfect walk-about lens and it is almost constantly in use. On my EOS 500D something is lost at the wide setting but that is easily overcome with two images stitched together and at the tele end the 1.6 cropping factor makes for a respectable zoom. Mainly used for landscape and architectural but have also got some pretty good results with wildflower photos. Worth the extra money for the quality of an L series lens.
The lens is noticeably "chunkier" than the 18-55 kit lens and a lot heavier but a small price to pay for the quality and convenience.
One of the best lenses I've purchased so far. Incredibly sharp all the way though, plus AF is almost instant which is what you should expect from an L series.
Since owning this lens it seems to be on my camera all the time. I've hardly had to change lenses while out on the field unless I'm also carrying another lens specifically designed for that certain task.
I can't fault it. If your after an extremely high quality lens to add to your collection, or to replace an existing kit lens etc I cant recommend this lens enough. Its superb!
Fantastic General Purpose lens. My firsr Canon "L" series glass.
Very sharp immages, quick focusing and even though maximum aperture is only F4, it still produces a nice out of focus background and bokeh for portrait shots.
