- Industry standard.- December 28, 2013
When comparing images taken with a lower level lens, you can see a substantial difference in image quality. With this lens, you get tack sharp images, and the focal speed of this lens is insane and very accurate. I had the generation before this series and There is a noticeable difference on how fast the lens gets into focus when shooting a moving subject like an athlete or a young squirmy child. Collects a ton of light with very little noise. It's worth the price because you'll be able to charge more for the quality of your prints. If you're looking to get into stock photography, any L Series lens will greatly assist you in getting images accepted.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great lens!- October 22, 2014
Personally, I love this lens, I am amateur photographer, learning and improving steadily. I own a 7D and will soon be buying a 6D. I'm not great at writing reviews but here's a summary of my friend's view on the lens (he is a professional photographer, a real one, haha): Pros - smaller, lighter lens with improved weight distribution. Flare resistance, sharpness and color accuracy comparable to Canon L Prime lenses. New center pinch-style lens cap and button-release hood. Cons - No more internal zooming, camera can't stand face down on hood, expensive, doesn't hold focus after changing focal length. Exposure is affected slightly throughout zoom range.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- New standard work horse- August 12, 2016
I really didn't want to buy this lens because I had the range already covered and was able to buy some length on a 100-400, When talking to other photographers about everything from a great portrait lens to candid hobby photography, EVERYONE said this was the glass for the job. I ended up selling my 100-400 and the kit lens18-135 that came with the 80D and purchased it. Wow the larger aperture really has made a huge difference, it makes everything looks SOOOOOO clean and professional. I took a couple random shots of my wife before a date and WOW it looks like a model ad. Purchased additional protection and keeping this forever.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
