Pros: construction - focal excursion - solidity

Cons: weight and light

Opinion: Optics I had for a couple of years in my kit, slightly cooler in yield than the various 24-70. What to say, a professional lens and on the full frame sensor from the maximum. I found it extremely correct and sharp at all focal points and diaphragms, especially from 4 and up. It is worth the expense and for the costs it has in the used market almost I buy it back. Obviously it has the defect of a doublet that on some specimens dulls, not on mine fortunately, and the fact that spare parts are impossible.

Pros: Robustness, brightness, sharpness!

Cons: Considering the modern competition... NO one, it's always ahead of so many lenses today!

Opinion: Inherited from my dad, former photographer, once you attached it to the machine body you wouldn't take it off anymore... and not because of hereditary nostalgia, but because of its f.2.8! On photostreet is one of the best. With my 80D, he doesn't miss a beat... I'd like to one day try it on an FF... however, there is still a lens that makes a difference... especially when we have little light! If you find it used, you won't let it get away!

Pros: GREAT GOAL ETC. ALL OK

Cons: GOES BEAUTIFULLY ON THE PROFESSIONAL

Opinion: It's an IMPORTANT to the AdmiralTy CANON EOS 1 D MARK 2 ETC... LASCIA WITHOUT THE TIME FOR THE IMAGE QUALITY , IN Fact, HOW TO VERY OTTICHE OF HIGH QUALITy NOT TO BE GOOD TO CAMERAS NOT PROF. THE USE WITH A 5D THE MESSE IN VERY CASI RESULT INDECISA, BUT NOT DIPENDEN OF THE OPTICAL BUT THE ECONOMIC SYSTEM ADOPTED OF THE CANON FOR THESE CAMERAS, IF INSTEAD the US FOR SUNA 1D MARK 2 O 1DS MARK2 O 1DS MARK 3 ETCE... is A SCHEGGIA AND OF ABSOLUTE

Pros: Current purchase price, construction, yield from L.

Cons: Knowing what you do nothing

Opinion: Really amazed. Having found a used specimen, in excellent condition and not far from home; I tried. Having not had the opportunity to test the latest models, I refrain from making comparisons. The last two times I spent that amount I regretted after a little of the purchases made. I heard many, rightly, warn about the lack of spare parts: that specimen looked new and after trying it for half an hour I took it home with me. I have even older lenses, which kept with regard have never given me boredom (it is always true that you defy fate, I do not deny it, but it is with regard to all purchases without guarantees whatsoever). A lens with infinite versatility, but you pay by weight. Incredible yield and blurry for a zoom, I had never seen anything like it. Sharp and bright enough. I was fascinated by the rendering on the canvas side, leaving me in front of beautiful portraits. The rendering of the colors seemed to me peculiar, it has something dated; like the lens of the rest, which has more years than me. I highly recommend it to anyone who finds a well-kept specimen and who has the opportunity to try it out.

Pros: Construction, brightness, sharpness, colors, blurry, AF precision, L-series yield, to date stands up well with successors

Cons: Risk of not finding spare parts in case of breakdowns, minimum focus distance sometimes uncomfortable, otherwise none

Opinion: I needed a zoom to use for events and ceremonies, obviously with a great opening but didn't want to spend a lot of capital... So I decided to buy this "veteran" of the L Canon series zooms... what to say, excellent construction, fluid and very robust rings, for large hands can be very comfortable, the lampshed then does its duty really well. From a technical point of view it is already sharp enough at 2.8 although in post I still have to increase its value a little, I expected a much sharper and more decisive flare resistance, especially on values of 28 and 35 millimeters, but in post production you can recover ... little distortion and in my opinion an excellent yield even on the edges, the colors are really excellent and faithful to reality, even if they remain stationary to what were analog machine bodies and perhaps the first digital ... for those who want to take home a bright L series zoom all do I really recommend it to everyone !
