Pros: Great lens, very versatile,excellent IS, sharp in all aperture and lighter.

Cons: Rarely some inconsistencies.

Opinion: I'm been using this lens with my Canon 7d as a kit lens, compairing to 24-105 f4 L, 28-135 as my other lenses its very versatile and much sharper. Built quality of this lens is excellent. 15mm wide up to 85mm can shot any types of subjects from portraiture to landscape. This lens is capable of shooting a macro shot with superb sharpness,contrast and color rendition.

Pros: Light and maneuverable, versatile, minimum focus distance, efficient stabilizer

Cons: Above 15 Mpxl shows its limits in terms of sharpness, barrel drift, vacuum cleaner

Opinion: I used this lens to replace the 18-55 II kit on the Eos 450D and a 550D. Compared to standard optics another planet in terms of speed of focus, definition and stabilization. With the switch to the Eos 77D (24 Mpxl) he showed his limitations. At first I thought it was a focus problem, but with calibration performed I realized that it was just a matter of lens sharpness (compared to 24-70 2.8 II and 70-200 2.8 II). I recommend it, but look at the sensor you're going to mount it on.

Pros: Versatility, lightness and handling, clarity at the shortest focal points, build quality

Cons: Af unreliable, barrel drift, chromatic aberrations, list price

Opinion: Objective that offers a strong feeling of quality for materials, solidity and construction quality, just affected by the drift of the barrel that in practice disturbs only for accentuated inclinations, very close to the vertical. Freehand, by the way, the hand holds the lens and therefore blocks any movement. Using the tripod you can safely overcome it with an elastic band of just over 5 euros. He is a good all-rounder: in the travel photograph once mounted on the car (I have a 70D) you no longer take it off, it weighs relatively little, it is not bulky and therefore easy to handle. I noticed excellent sharpness (almost from L series) to shorter focal points, from 15 to 20, as long as not at TA, while at medium and high focal points the performance drops, still remaining better than those of the kit lens. The most negative aspect is the focus, which I would call un reliable. It did not always happen, but in some situations that I have to study better, it failed to focus subjects at medium high distances (from 100 m in there). No problem, however, with very close or otherwise low distances. It also suffers from chromatic aberrations. The list price of 799.99 euros proposed by Canon is not valid. The value for money can become favorable under 600 euros or by purchasing the used lens (I saw that it can be found from 300 to 450 euros).

Pros: Versatile, build quality, sharpness.

Cons: Weight, barrel drift.

Opinion: Purchased used for .400 in an online store including lampshade and warranty about 6 months ago. For aps c I think it's a must. Quality jump compared to the sad 18-55 kit. The 15 mm is very useful. At 85 is an average canvas. My specimen is giving me satisfaction; it certainly doesn't have an exaggerated opening, but I think it's a well thought out and built zoom.

Pros: Sharpness, focal range, 4-stop stabilization

Cons: I would have preferred was F4 constant

Opinion: When I took this lens, I came up with APS-C from Standard 18-55. Another planet, especially for those three mm from the wide side that I absolutely sought. This allowed me in time to use it as a handyman in many situations, especially the holidays. On the tele side instead allows shots that otherwise would have forced the change of optics, in many cases impossible. I do not regret the 2.8 because in that case the optics would become huge or with less focal excursion. In fact I tried a 17-55 2.8, but used to this it was tight on both sides. I finally switched to FF and I'm sorry to sell it. Compared to 24-105, the only difference is the constant diaphragm. Not known substantive qualitative differences. As someone pointed out this lens could be an L EFS but Canon has decided not to brand it like that (better for the price).
