Opinion:After a long use of L series tanks, I wanted to take to try this now dated optical, as a travel handyman, also seen the now palsy price... The focal ratio is very interesting, being a 3.5-4.5, so not far from the constant F4s... At full opening it is rather soft, although in different uses such as portraiture can be very interesting. I find the color rendering beautiful, very balanced and realistic even in the standard jpeg settings. The focal range makes it a great all-rounder when you want to travel light, on vacation or during a trekking session... The weight is really palious, but it doesn't particularly unbalance a machine like the 5dII. The real sore note is given by the chromatic aberrations especially at the edges, where you can also notice a pronounced distortion at 24mm. However, in these days of imprisonment I enjoyed trying it in parallel to a Tamron 28-75 2.8 on a Sony A7III and it comes out far from beaten, chromes apart (present although to a lesser extent also on the tamron). From the tests carried out, the least convincing focus is about 35mm, but I reserve the right to carry out more serious tests... I'm sure if it was still in the catalog, up to max 200 euros would be an absolute best buy... The construction is quite "cheap", but still in the standard of objectives not L... it's a pity that the barrel tends to slip with a bit of violence in the 85mm position when you tip the lens down, although not always... after a few days of intense use I would like to write the above, but as soon as I get the chance, I reserve the right to update the review.
Pros:Light, focal range, sharpness, color rendering, AF
Cons:For age and price none
Opinion:Purchased on occasion in addition to a 5d sold to a friend and reused on 6d and fuji xt-10, I find this optical project extremely valid despite age. All right.... it is not stabilized, distortion at 24 mm, light color aberration at TA, but on the other hand sharpness more than good also and, I would say, especially in TA, lightness, compatibility with nx adapters, excellent colors, very comfortable focal length range, minimum footprint. There is always regret that this format has been abandoned by the manufacturers for the 24/105 all-rounders who, although stabilized, improved, pumped etc. in comparison remain uncomfortable. All-rounder overconsiled especially for ff.
Pros:range, sharpness, usm, weight and footprint, price
Opinion:Zoom all-rounder bought a little to try given the ridiculous price at which it is used (100euros shipped, in my case). I use it on apsc to flank my fixers in situations where I can't move freely. the equivalent range of FF focals on apsc is about 38-140mm; compared to use on FF you lose a lot wide-angle side, but as far as I'm concerned on occasions when I need a wide angle I use calmly the samyang 14mm; I find it much more comfortable to have the good maximum opening (f/3.5) on a multipurpose focal like the 24mm. The photos are crisp and the colors beautiful, the raw (using lightroom) have very little contrast compared to my other newer lenses (all stm), which is returning me very comfortable when I have to process shots in problematic light situation. For the rest... it is a light and well-built zoom, the af usm is quiet and lightning- it costs a whistle, I consider it a great compromise between brightness and weight/clutter. If it had been stabilised, it would have been a masterpiece, but for the 100 degrees it is today, I don't think we can ask for more. Recommended.
Opinion:It simply makes good pictures. Sharp and colorful. The af works well. After years of use there is no dust between the internal lenses. Convenient because light and compact. On the vignette ff but it is clear enough already at full aperture. Good boken. Missing IS, for some perhaps a real limit. For me no. On all entry level 100 times better than 18-55 of the kit.
Pros:Weight, dimensions, optical quality. Silent and precise AF.
Cons:Full-color chromatic aberration
Opinion:Optics all do with in the focal range that is interesting from landscape to portrait. The quality of the image that is returned is very good, though not good. You have to understand why you are looking for it. I use 99% optical optics, but I needed to use them in the classic family situations where I was asked to do as a photographer. There! This optic is perfect for these situations, especially by linking weight-dimension-quality-color-cost. It may be used with a flash.rnDoted with a silent AF and with a sniper precision, at least on 6D, it forgets the few flaws it brings. rnDifficult to find in the market because I think a few would give it away at a low price (but more could not be asked) than the undeniable benefits it has. rnPutting out sharpness, the center is always sharp, less at the extremities of the wide openings. Even closing at f5.6 is clear even at the sides. It has a blur very soft, pleasing. Beautiful warm colors typical of the 90s usm series. The constructionand is not excellent, with the barrel divided into two parts when it stretches, and it cuts a bit. I have to say, however, that the specimen in my possession, despite having a few decades behind, does not have only granules of dust inside the interior. If you love the fixed but still need a zoom for rare occasions, and you think it's not worth looking for a L-style optics, this model could do it for you. Optical to use with Canon DPP for the necessary corrections (distortion and AC)
