  • average image quality on the edge of the frame, chromatic aberration corrected weakly, significant distortion, huge vignetting, distinct astigmatism at the shortest focal length, modest accessory kit.
  • The mere comparison of the lists of pros and cons shows that our summary can't be positive. Good and even but not splendid work in the frame centre is simply not enough a reason for a lens to be only praised. Its main problem is the fact that it doesn't o...

  • Abstract:  This lens does it all for Canon's . It focuses super fast, zooms from wide-angle to super-telephoto, and gets close enough for macro shots. It could be the only lens you ever need for most Canon DSLRs. It's a great lens, but h...
