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: Weight, ergonomics, value for money, diameter screw filters, sturdiness, internal Zoom, AF silent and fast, general image rendering.

Cons: Few and after years of intensive use, I do not find, apart, if you want to be really picky, a slight flare in situations really extreme.

Opinion: I have read about all the colors on this lens, I bought it again at the beginning 2014, as in practice that should be normal, I immediately made the micro-adjustment of optics on my camera bodies. The result is that for 5 years I accompany and works every day (or almost) always satisfying my expectations and those of customers. Flare does not exist in the vast majority of cases, apart from some really extreme, but these are cases where the majority of other wide angles would already be KO, lightweight, robust construction typical of L series, AF motor really fast and quiet, Sharp both at the center and at the edges, I use it practically always between F8 and F11 and in rare cases that its at full aperture the result does not disappoint me at all. What to say more, I wanted to replace it with the new 16-35 F4 IS, but winning team does not change and will remain with me for quite some time.

Pros: Weight, ergonomics, quality/price ratio (used), internal zoom, robustness

Cons: Low-light, quality loss at F4, bulky lens hood

Opinion: I've been using this lens for over a year, initially I used it on a 1100d then with APSC sensor and it proved a good handyman; However I discovered its true qualities when I started using it on a 5d; I think it's a suitable lens for FF SLR where it proves great for landscapes, street and travel photos. The weight and the construction are balanced with a sturdy machine body. From the point of view of quality reflects exactly what is expected, excellent image quality (not excellent), not too bright (F4) and at full aperture loses sharpness (if only a little), AF fast. Advised the purchase used (with maximum expenditure of €400 you make a bargain).

Pros: Weight, dimensions (without lens hood), AF silent and Fast (USM), F. 4.0 constant, good overall yield also at the edges between F. 5.6 and F. 11, used price.

Cons: Bulky lens hood, but a lens hood for this lens could not be less cumbersome, slight drop in sharpness at the edges under F. 5.6 (but without dramas), lack of stabilization, but stabilization on such an objective is useful, not indispensable (and Then it always depends on personal needs).

Opinion: I have this lens for about six months, got used to €350., and I'm very satisfied with it, so as to use it as standard zoom also on the Sony Alpha 7 via Sigma MC11 adapter. Recommended for those who, like me, do not have special requirements that require the presence of a stabilizer or greater brightness of the lens.

Pros: Handyman for APS-C, flare inseistenti, weight, quality/price

Cons: The huge hood... if it's a flaw, sharpness at the edges

Opinion: I recently took this used lens. Mounted for now on APS-C is a wonderful handyman who finally replaced the 18-55.... What a leap of quality! Used in the mountains in any light situation, not even a reflex! Light compared to other lenses of the L series, mounted fixed on my reflex, I take it everywhere and not a mistake.
