Pros: sharpness, speed, detail, f: 2.8, lightness

Cons: only serves to cameras with aps-c sensor, could be firmer in the front segment (fluctuates a bit when in 55mm)

this is my lens of choice for travel photos, portraits, nocturnal, architecture, for any service. Mounted on my Canon EOS 50D produces a set of very high quality and performance. The only thing it lacks to be an L series lens is the red stripe, but also did not make sense to Canon to produce an EF-s series lens as a L series. In all the features it provides the lens-end to users of sensor APS-C.

Pros: Image quality, brightness, image stabilizer

Cons: constructive quality, cost, block impossibility focal length, vacuum cleaner

Lens breakneck quality! A perspective that you do pay dearly, but it's worth it buy it. Qualitatively it returns images of the same series of optical L. Unfortunately, the hood must be purchased separately. Build quality is very bad. You have to be very careful otherwise the lens becomes vacuum. There is the possibility of the focal length of the block so probably after a few months of use will end up with the lens fully extended to 55mm because of the location of your neck reflex and the force of gravity. Too bad that Canon has not thought about improving some aspects to make this the best optics. Despite the many flaws but I would advise it to APSC SLR owners who want to make a major qualitative leap.

Pros: Truly outstanding. Sharpness scary even at TA, fine detail, bright, accurate colors, lightning-fast AF, reliability, fixed aperture to f / 2.8 IS.

Cons: I do not come off more by reflex, I do not think is unmatched. It makes it hard to think about switching to FF where those focal and the quality (fixed part) you have to spend a lot for the 24-70 f / 2.8 II.

I have this goal for 3 years and I am delighted, though not exceptional building is more than satisfactory for each use type. With a fixed aperture to f / 2.8 it allows you shooting at night or with little light and fantastic prohibitive with the darkest objectives Dodging you often use the flash. It has a truly exceptional sharpness, very difficult to find equal on APSC. Using it always with UV filter Hoya far no speck of dust inside the lens. For me its yield is also higher than the famous white 70/200 L, tested and all of which have the smooth series f / 4. If you un'apsc it is a real shame not to have it. Highly recommended.

Pros: Virtually all: incredible sharpness, building although very valid plasticky, lightning-fast autofocus, aperture apertuta almost fixed.

Cons: Hood not supplied

The best lens ever for aps-c, if you have not a ff machine run to take no other. I also had the opportunity to compare it thoroughly with a 24-105 L, but there is no comparison, the 17-55 much more powerful and sharp. The only limit is the lens that does not go on full frame rate, which can be binding in choosing acqusto, but to have even better results, but comparable to ff you have to spend thousands of Euros for a 24 70 2.8.

Pros: Crisp with AF very fast high build quality with IS performance

Cons: Usable only on aps-c, no hood series

Using this lens for some time and I can express my very good impression from the first scatti.rnLa quality is excellent and although it has not the red ring of L series gives eccezionali.rnOvviamente results can only be mounted on aps-c, but not there is no equivalent to FF that incorporates both the aperture to f / 2.8 that IS.rnLa color rendering think is indisputable. I had the Tamron in the same band (f / 2.8 VC) which, although good, could not compete with the canon, even on engaging dellAF low light. Well ', the cost is significant but really worth the money you pagano.rnSarò maybe I was lucky but my copy never did get a single grain of dust: no vacuum effect using the zoom, among other things, soft to the point giusto.rnLa flaw lies in choosing canon not to the standard lens hood that will be but not fitted with velvety, but costs as if it were gold plated. An absurd price disparity to be a piece of focal plastica.rnL'escursione makes an obiective handyman then both photos you possibly video thanks to the fact that you have an IS system which, although not recently from a technological point of view, it gives a great help in situations estreme.rnConsigliere to this lens to anyone who had the opportunity to invest some penny, because i see that the used prices are invitanti.rn
