Pros: Solid, tropical conditions and resistance to flare, wide on FF, great 24-70 on crop, price

Cons: nothing, on APSC. FF on the corners to maximum apertures are bit soft

Opinion: Good L-series I was very happy with the sharpness . A lens that is really good for a landscape. Construction and color rendering at the top, the colors are very loyal and does not enter the lens dominant. I use it with a b + w 10 stop and I was never disappointed. E 'on 400 euro and it is, in my opinion, a good quality for your pictures. As mentioned above, with the crop APSC is uan has made remarkable throughout the frame, which becomes sublime between f 9-11 (values ??almost stringent for a landscape). Everything lies in the use that he wants to do. Ultimately, I would never change this lens, absolutely.

Pros: Sharpness, transportability, internal zoom, focal range, new life with Sony body

Cons: Hood so not very functional that you leave it at home

Opinion: Fantastic lens and very sharp in the center. The sharpness at the edges is good from f8 and therefore great for landscapes on easel. The focal range makes it less specialized than the 16 35. The use as a handyman and the only travel lens adapted on a full frame Sony body where the AF does not miss a beat in all modes, the failure to stabilize the lens is compensated by that of the sensor and in crop mode it can become a 25-60 if necessary.

Pros: Construction, internal AF USM, compact.

Cons: Specialist landscape optics

Opinion: Hate and love with this perspective. I tried to use it for different photographic genres, as I used the 24-70 IS L f4. Nothing could be further from the wrong. It's a landscape-optimized lens. Diaphragms in which it expresses excellent sharpness from f8 to f11. Excellent flare resistance. He prefers a careful study of framing, preferably on an easel.

Pros: Great for scenery and some street.

Cons: nobody

Opinion: Great on any sensor. For outdoor excursions, landscapes and a few streets you will be widely appreciated. Excellent colors and details. For more than 15 years he has stood up to the most famous L's and other brands saving a lot of money. Very light, to be kept as a second or third choice in the backpack. Undeaworthyly devalued. All doing landscape that marked an era.

Pros: Construction, weight and dimensions, internal zoom, flare resistance, excellent AF

Cons: unsportsmanlike lampshed, decent sharpness from f8 onwards

Opinion: thanks to the transition from aps-c to FF I had to reevaluate this goal, I used it with satisfaction as an excellent everything to do on the 50d, now on FF I can not find a right place, too wide for my photographic tastes and too soft on the sides at the wider openings, decent shots are brought home only if it closes at f8, so on FF it is no longer a whole do , but a very specialized optics and I am not a lover of landscapes, but more inclined to travel reportage I preferred to exchange it canon 28 2.8 is, a middle ground regarding the focal point much more useful for my purposes.
