Product Review (submitted on 6 January 2012):
I bought this lens for my crop sensor 50D, as i wanted a 'semi-wide' angle lens for landscapes and general photography. The build quality is typical L-series (i.e. fantastic) and the lens balances well on the 50D's body. For an L lens, it certainly isn't heavy, making this an excellent 'walk around lens', but that doesnt mean that the optical quality is left wanting. To put simply, its brilliant, delivering sharp images throughout the zoom range, with relatively low chromatic aberrations, and on a crop sensor body, almost no noticeable vignetting. Add to this the ability to use this lens on a full frame camera (a 5d for example, giving a true 'ultra-wide angle') and its competitive price, and you have a fantastic, multi-use lens, that will last for years to come.
