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: nice lens, sharpness, stabilizer.

Cons: a little expensive, good construction not at the top, hood to part distortion to 17

it's the lens I use the most for the focal versatility in my kit. With my 80d makes me very good photos both indoors being a 2.8 that outdoors very clear. There is no comparison with the standard lens 18 55 the bottle bottom. even if a little old is very good and for apsc is the top. I had the sigma 17 50 2.8 before that costs less than half and that's okay but that tended to make a mistake a little more the focus with respect to the canon especially in low light. Great!!!!!

Pros: Extraordinary sharpness, fast autofocus, brightness, stabilizer

Cons: Lack of hood, impossibility to block the focal length, slight problem of dust extraction

It 'a lens that I loved, unfortunately does not mount on ff and I had to sell it. As soon as it was assembled (I was from 18-135), a world opened up to me. Although not excellent in construction is a truly extraordinary goal, maybe slightly expensive, but anyway you put it and do not take it anymore. Very good for portraits, I think it's the best zoom lens for aps-c

Pros: Sharpness, definition, brightness, opens the world in the eyes of a neophyte

Cons: EF-S, weight, construction materials, barrel extension not lockable

Perfect for APS-C, I replaced the kit 18-55 IS after not even a year of use. Another world, under the right conditions, the photos have a stunning sharpness. Too bad for the good construction but not the excellence, a pity for the barrel that opens too easily to the maximum extension if held to the neck by walking, a block would be ideal; but above all it is a shame that it is a damned EF-S, I bought it willingly thinking that I would hardly have gone to FF and now that I want to do it I have to have it replaced and replaced (and I know I'll probably regret it). Protected by a protective filter Canon terrorized by the vacuum cleaner the frontal element, never came a grain. Being 77mm the filters are a bit more expensive. The history of the hood is not known by now, Canon only puts it exclusively and indisputably and unquestionably for the L series: purchased compatible for 15-20 € and never had difficulty. rnThank you very much if you do not go to FF for the next 10 years, or if you want prgive it a few months and sell it with its pretty 95% guarantee.

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.
