I currently have a Rebel T2i, have not felt the need to upgrade because I mainly shoot stills with it, I shoot RAW, and the 18 MPCMOS sensor is plenty for me. I have the 17-55 f/2.8 zoom and love the sharpness, the f/2.8 speed and IS, but hate the huge size relative to the small Rebel camera. I've wanted a small, fast prime for APS-C format in a medium-wide range. I've tried the 28mm f/1.8 lens but was disappointed with it. It was too soft, didn't really sharpen up till f/4. It wasn't worth it as a small, carry everywhere prime. Canon seems to have two minds with digital lines; the Pro "L" line with full frame bodies and high quality, expensive primes and zooms and the APS-C format for everyone else. Although there are two very good EF-S zooms (10-22 f/3.5-4.5 and 17-55 f/2.8) Canon really has not produced many EF-S primes. Their approach seems to be that EF-S users use Zooms. The cameras seem to change about every 12-18 months, the lenses last about 10-15 years, so it's worth deciding what format you are going to go with and getting a body every 2-3 years, to keep up with upgrades. When I saw that Canon was coming out with 35 mm f/2.0, 28 mm f/2.8 and 24 f/2.8 with IS, my interest was piqued. I checked out the reviews of this lens and it seemed to be the perfect prime for the APS-C format. This lens is a significant leap in quality from the fixed 28mm I tried before. It's small, sharp wide open, the IS adds 4 stops of image stabilization. I can easily take sharp pictures of non moving subjects at 1/3 second. It's about 38 mm in the full format equivalent. Focusing is (as expected) lightning fast, typical for Canon ultrasonic motors and mirror systems. The IS mechanism whirs quietly when operating.Read more ›

Please don't take the Amazon star rating too serious - every lens has its pros and cons that I wouldn't want to squeeze into a single one-dimensional figure...
A quick note about me: I have been into SLR cameras and lenses for more than 20 years - as a hobby in the beginning and professionally later. Maybe because of my technical background I started testing my own lenses quite a while ago. I have a (no longer so) little test lab of my own where I do 6 different image quality tests (after taking a lens out for a while).

The EF 24mm f/2.8 IS USM is a compact and well-built prime lens with a nice wide-angle focal length, a good maximum aperture and a modern image stabilizer that compensates up to 4 f-stops. While the image stabilizer sounds great one has to consider that it's not as necessary in wide-angle lenses as it is in telephoto lenses - but I still appreciate it. The lens is best used indoors or for architecture and landscape photography. When using the lens with an APS-C camera the resulting effective focal length of 38mm is somewhere in between a wide-angle and a standard / normal lens and thus can be used for a whole variety of things.

The lens offers good image quality - sharpness is great straight from f/2.8 and there is only a small amount of barrel distortion visible. My lab tests have shown that color fringes ("Chromatic Aberrations") both in focused parts ("Transverse CA") of the image and in out-of-focus areas ("Axial CA") are visible but compared with its immediate peers the lens's performance is quite respectable. There is no curvature of the focal plane ("Field Curvature") but corner shadows ("Vignetting") are very intense and they are visible even stopped-down.

The EF 24mm f/2.

I have recently expanded my focus to video-as well as photography. Given the new emphasis on video, my Canon 17-40mm F4 was not cutting it...a bit too soft for my liking. So after a bit of research and deliberation I opted to go prime and purchase this lens. I was hoping for the best, but knew I was taking a risk given the little feedback available. First impressions:

* Physical construction is really solid. Perhaps shy of an "L" series, but much better than the Canon 50mm at f1.4, for example.
* This lens is tack sharp! Not quite to the color standard of the Canon 24mm f1.4 "L" (via direct comparison), but a negligible difference.
* Image stabilization works wonders, especially at around 1/30th of a second shutter. I hear a lot of people talk about how wide focal lengths, such as the 24mm don't need IS. It is true that wide angles marginalize the shake, but from a video point of view, IS is necessary. Also, stabilization software seems to struggle with focal lengths below 50mm. An additional reason to purchase an IS lens.
* The focus is quick, but shifts fields like crazy on my Canon 5d Mark 2-which has an okay focusing system. Not sure if the lens or camera is to blame?
* Depending upon your in-camera contrast setting, vignetting is the biggest draw back I have encountered with this lens-It is rather strong at f2.8.
* All things considered, a much better value than the 24mm f1.4 "L". However, I think the price tag is a touch high, especially if you don't need the IS. Adorama sells this lens, sans tax.
