Pros: light, cheap, fast af, always very sharp in the center, drops little only at the edges. pleasant blurry

Cons: 24mm and 85mm. doesn't hold up backlight and makes sunstar hideous

Opinion: it is found in ridiculous figures of 50 to 100 euros in 2020. its main strength is lightness. there are no other handyman canon ef ff so light. the sharpness is very good in the center ALWAYS. at the edges drops at full opening. ideal to f8 NOTE GOOD: the distortion and vignette are really strong. in particular the distortion at both 24mm barrel and 85mm bearing. so make sure that the post-production software you use has the profile to fix. using it on canon with dxo I correct but using it adapted with sony has no correction. it is therefore unusable. otherwise the photos, especially landscapes and architecture will be worth it. I also add that it does not hold the counter light at all and has very bad 6-pointed sunstars is the worst piece of the triad ef 20-35, 24-85, 70-210 all 3.5-4.5. consider the wide and the canvas. little expense as much yield as everything do the 28-135 usm is is much higher than this except that it doesn't have the 24mm and is priciest in the used

Pros: Image quality, weight and size, autofocus, price quality, colors, focal range

Cons: Vignette on FF, chromatic aberrations, sharpness at the edges

Opinion: Taken used for less than 80 euros is a lens that is worth every euro spent. Light and compact, you always carry it behind and it is always reliable despite the plastic construction suggests a low quality goal. On my 6D the balance is optimal and it is a handyman who surprised me for the image quality that he can guarantee in all light conditions. Great AF that immediately hooks the subject and is silent. The small flaws it has are a heightened vignette on TA FF that disappears closing at f/8, AC and distortion at 24mm but everything is easily corrected in PP. The drop in sharpness at the edges in such an inexpensive lens can stay there but you only notice zooming in on the photos and it's not a big deal for the success of a shot.

Pros: Lightness, focal range, chromatic yield, value for money, focal ratio.

Cons: Chromatic aberrations, sharpness, construction.

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

Cons: unstabilized

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.
