Pros: Handyman.... Construction, brightness, sharpness even at full aperture (which can vary according to sensors) color depth, wonderful blur, lightning precision and focus, very little distortion, professional performance of L-series, cost in used currently, Lens Hood (obviously purchased apart)

Cons: 28mm sometimes they are a little pochini... Risk of not finding spare parts in case of faults... For the rest really nothing.

Opinion: Bought by very little, really really great lens! I needed a zoom to use for events and ceremonies, obviously with a big opening but I didn't want to spend a capital... I decided to buy this "veteran" of the series Zoom L Canon... What about, excellent construction, smooth and very very sturdy nuts, for big hands can be very comfortable, the hood then does really well its duty. From the technical point of view is already sharp enough to 2.8 even if in post I still have to increase a bit ' value, I expected a flare resistance much sharper and more decisive, especially on values of 28 and 35 millimeters, but in post production you can recover... Little distortion and to my opinion an excellent yield even on the edges, the colors are really good and true to reality, even if they remain stationary to those who were analogue camera bodies and perhaps the first digital... For those who want to take home a series zoom L bright all make it really recommend at all!

Pros: Constructive quality, sharpness, speed of focus, good focal excursion, no excess, Splendid bokeh.

Cons: Slight loss of sharpness up to diaphragm 4, lack of spare parts, weight.

Opinion: An inescapable handyman-friendly design goal. with loose, saturated, well contrasted colors, it returns a very nice blur and sharpness at all the best focal points diaphragming a bit, I've been able to compare it with the 24/70 I and in my opinion it is slightly better even if it does not reach 24mm I do not feel the pain of the pain because there is no risk of distortion and eberration of the image with a 28 that is practically everything.rnProved both on old eos5D that on eos 6D diaphragm on 4 returns magnificent images! rnConsiglible if paid the right today under £ 400 if in good condition it is the best purchase for a standard zoom Canon.rnvoto 9.5 only for a slight lack of clarity up to f4 otherwise 10

Pros: build quality, 2.8 fixed, accurate colors, bokeh

Cons: no spare parts, weight

Opinion: I've had it for a very short time available and it was love at first sight: impeccable build quality. It returns true colors, saturated, well contrasted, balanced. Beautiful bokeh. Unfortunately, one of the lenses of the optical unit was slightly opaque and I had to send back (in the bad luck I have had the good fortune to meet an honest person). Now I bought a lot less a Sigma 17-50 f / 2.8 EX DC OS HSM ... let ', here on the site we all speak well ... VOTE 9.5

Pros: sharpness, build quality

Cons: little wide angle, old age

Opinion: Objective standards of L-series, it behaves exactly as you would expect from a lens like that. outstanding optical performance, despite his age, bright, crystal clear, with a fast and accurate AF. The 28mm is a bit 'narrow at times, but they guarantee freedom from bias. It is located at far lower prices than the newest brothers (24-70), if we do not worry too much about the unavailability of spare parts

Pros: simply tutto.ghiere comfortable, fluid, beautiful colors, great blurred .. my copy up and not just the 24-70 old who had, in distortion and focus.

Cons: Minimum focus distance of 50 cm, a bit heavy, but for me it is not a problem in fact makes it more stable and balanced with canon 5d III.forse a bit sensitive .. af is not lightning but it is more than enough ..

Opinion: Accustomed now and love the new 24-70 f 2.8 II that I use in all the ceremonies and events .. I decided to buy this context as a forklift in case of failure of the other or to lend my shoulder .. I had opted For Sigma 35 f 1.4 but I soon realized that the fixed ceremonies and events made me miss so many shots and shots .. first of all the fact from 28 mm is not a disadvantage but gives photos straight, almost perfect square, nothing to do with the problems of deformation and curvature of field of the old 24-70 that I had .. another thing is lighter than the 24-70 old .. and I noticed that my copy is even sharper 24 -70 old .. I was not expecting an optical cosi.è amazing, all right. Highly recommended ..
