Pros: Lightweight, economical, optically more than good, excellent blurred, good stabilization, very fast af

Cons: Plastic but sturdy enough, a bit bulky

Opinion: Optics that I recommend. you buy at very good prices around 150 euros in 2022. Optically it is more than discreet always sharp in the center, and closed it is very sharp. the blurred is good. The construction is plastic and looks poor but actually works and lasts. I have carried it everywhere for years and it has always held up. I regretted selling it when I switched to 24-105L. it is very light but bulky. its rival today is the 24-105 STM. Between the latter and the 28-135 for me the choice depends on money and if you need the 24mm wide side. I would opt for the 24-105 because I love the wide

Pros: Fortunately mistreated, good sharpness, classic focal range from film, compactness, colors, stabilizer that despite being the first series produced by Canon helps in low lights.

Cons: Two-cam excursion zoom that generates slight transverse movements of the lenses, completely plastic (although partly of good quality) except for the bayonet which is made of metal.

Opinion: Looking for vintage optics to be used for light outputs and maybe with a single lens, without carrying around much more expensive optics in risky places, I came across an opportunity for an almost immaculate specimen that I bought for the equivalent of a fifty f1.8 II used or a little more. Honestly from the first shots (made among other things with the Canon 5D Mk IV at full resolution) I had the feeling of having in my hand a different lens from the one that has been reviewed by many as a bottle bottom or so. It will not be the Canon EF 24-70 f2.8 L II or the 24-105 f4 L IS, but neither will it be the 18-55 series I and II for aps-c to which some compare it. The colors are the classic old school Canon ones that I found in the 24-85 that I already owned and in the canon 50mm f1.4 usm. Distortion and peripheral AC can be corrected with a click using the lens profile in Photoshop, while good sharpness is present at all focal lengths. The weight, accustomed to much heavier optics that I have and that I have had in the past, for me is quite light and very manageable in size, also the construction (even if it is not the best with the double cam for zoom), perhaps thanks to the excellent state of conservation of my specimen, does not suffer for the moment of the slipping of the front lens group when put upside down, nor of an excessive transversal game. For those looking for a good optics as a first purchase for an FF body without spending excessively I highly recommend it.

Pros: covered focal points, cheap, stabilized, light, versatile

Cons: "plastic", not exceptional sharpness

Opinion: I have had this lens since 2006, from my first Canon 30D (on which it was actually little wide-angle, but I survived). He accompanied me to discover photography and even now (on 5D II), although not very often, it comes in handy. The sharpness at TA is not great, but closing a little improves, but above all, as always, depends what you have to do: for small prints or situations from immediate jpeg, the results will definitely not be to be despised, with good colors and sharpness more than enough. Stabilization is not as phenomenal as the most modern, but for the years it has, it does its job well. Little bulky and light (although, as mentioned, a bit "plastic"), it is a very good and really economical lens to start to become familiar with the various focals and then eventually evolve towards something of higher quality. Distortion present, but not exaggerated (less than that of more recent targets). What to say: it will not be a super top ever, but for the figures it is around, it maintains in my opinion a rather interesting value for money and for example associated with an old FF (5D I or II) can allow with very little expense to start to experience.

Pros: Extension

Cons: Limited stabilizer, optical defects

Opinion: Bought a dozen years ago. It's basically a 4x zoom, including pretty much all the focal lengths you need. A unique lens for unpretentious photos, or even full hd static videos, to be used especially on NOT particularly resolute FFs, such as the 6D, which compensates with the most high ISO tightness the low brightness of the lens. For me, however, the advantage is another: it is the best lens when, in cycling competitions, at the first step of the shots there is the swarm of athletes. Then it becomes more valuable than 24-105, because depending on the moments you are able to even take double photos, when then comes some isolated athlete, without pulling out a zoom canvas. In these situations you shoot in medium or small jpeg, so all defects found become secondary. In other words, it is not held for amateur pleasure, but for necessity in some areas of work. It does not have a remarkable establishment, because it is not evolved.

Pros: Versatility

Cons: Optical and constructive quality

Opinion: In the end, I recount it after giving it away for lack of use, due to the qualitative limits of the images it is giving. It is an optic that might have a sense on the film, in which (although final) was designed: very few potential buyers A non-professional and handymanlike lens like this would have focused on looking at the frames with the magnifying glass, and the versatility given by the broad focal range, the stabilizer and the internal USM MAF could therefore effectively represent predominant factors in evaluating the Lens for this kind of users (of which I also belonged in all respects). Digital digital instead, especially if in FF, the optical limits prevail over any other evaluation, and it is a fact that the distortion, pronounced at barrel To 28mm and 135mm bearing, vignetting, 28mm to TA and also present with a diaphragm closure, and especially sharpness to the edges, really mo It is all about the focal, and sometimes embarrassingIn some situations, because linked to a clear spherical aberration of the MAF plane, they do not allow the sharpness at the center of the image, generally good and even good around the 50mm, to improve a totally negative judgment. The photos taken are in fact immancabilmente afflicted now from one, now on the other, now from all the listed defects, with the aggravating of a blur nervous and unpleasant in diaphragmatic shots, because of the only 6 lamella from the straight edge Rather than rounded. Finally, every time (ever more rare after purchasing the Eos 5D) that I was forced to use this goal, I was then able to count on more or less unsatisfactory images on the quality level, so much to make me think "Acci ... if I did this with 24, with 50, with 85 ..." rnThere is nothing to do: since, with the advent of digital, the detailed view Is at the reach of everyone (magnificationTo 100% on a good monitor), this optic in my view has lost its reason to exist. Much more if you consider the qualitative abyss that there is compared to the very much more expensive zoom, you want on the new you want on the used.rn plasticine and ballerina construction, with the front part of the lens that moves in millimeters inside The barrel, and the continuous buildup of dust between the inner lenses, strident with aesthetic and somewhat pretentious sizing, complete a really bad picture for me. I left it without any regrets.rn
