Top Customer Reviews
To me, this really is a full-frame lens where you can really utilize that great 17mm perspective. I think there are better options for those shooting with the 1.6x APS-C sensors. But that really is really up to the users and the needs they have. My girlfriend often borrows this lens to use with her T2i and loves it (I think the images look fantastic, as well!).
One thing I love most about this lens is the contrast and color rendition. Simply beautiful images straight out of camera. The build quality is top notch as well, the zoom and focus rings are very smooth and well damped. The lens is weather sealed, but does require a filter (per-Canon) to complete the sealing.
I give this lens 5/5 stars, simply due to its extremely affordable price (for an L lens) and excellent performance. Sure, there are sharper lenses out there, but that does not hinder this one at all. It still performs great and is a blast to use for dramatic perspectives. One of the most fun lenses to mount to the camera IMO. The light weight, great build quality and very good IQ make this a winner and a spot in my collection.
Be aware, that at 17mm and F/4, the extreme corners of image are really not very nice- real mushy- but by 5.6 they are pretty good- they also get better at F/4 by around 20mm, 22mm soimwhere in there if you're itnent on shooting at F/4- Just steer clear of 17mm at F/4 unless soft corners is what you intend
If you can't decide between this lens or the 16-35 2.8 - perhaps deciding what you shoot most woudl help- IF you shoot mostly landscapes on tripod- with mirror lockup and all that- and only occasionally take portraits outside or architecture outside in ok light, then really, you don't need a fast lens and htis lens will save you a substantial bit of money over the 16-35- Also, IF you have a canon 5d111 or the 1DX, then you can crank up the iso indoors withou much worry at all, and htis lens is perfectly adequate for indoor shots in lowish light- However, IF you don't like using higher iso's, and you have plenty of money, and mostly take portraits or family hsots indoors, or basketball games or whathaveyou- then the 16-35 might be a better lens for you- As well, I've heard that the difference in wide angle from 17- 16 is pretty significant difference, not sure how much though- so that might be a consideration too-
And folks, remember, todays lenses are leaps and bounds more sophisticated and clear and sharp than many of the old lenses that photographers/artists had to work with in times past- We keep looking for comparisons between todays razor sharp lenses, and worry abotu slight softness or chromatic abberations or whatever, but really, I think if we compared today's lenses with thsoe used by artists decades ago, we'd fidn that we're pretty lucky today to have such high quality lenses at prices we can somewhat afford
