10 out of 10 points and recommendedExtremely sharp to the corners, no CA, low distortion, tilt & shiftCost, large filters
I was looking for a lens which was flexible enough to shoot buildings and landscapes, without having to correct for keystone errors. Well the only way to go is to get a TS-E lens. I read the reviews and feedback from users, and this is THE 24mm to get. It may not have the f1.4 or autofocus, but it is sharp, really sharp, and the creative effects from lens tilt just increase your creative options.reviewed June 6th, 2011 (purchased for $2,006)
Takes a little getting used to at first: manual focus and manual exposure setting. The result is well worth the effort. Highly recommended.
8 out of 10 points and recommendedUltra fast autofocus, decent sharpness, bright lensSoft corners, some CA, cost
This is a bright lens, good for its fast autofocus, shooting young kids running around. Even if they move, the wide angle is sufficient to cover the area. Has nice bokeh and good for low light photography. I now realize its a bit expensive, but still cheaper than the 35L and 24L. A poor man's fast wide angle lens.reviewed June 6th, 2011 (purchased for $540)
10 out of 10 points and recommendedReally sharp and bright tele macro lens
A good tele and macro lens, with excellent sharpness. Virtually no CA, worth every cent.reviewed June 7th, 2011 (purchased for $770)
Can use it as a portrait lens too, and here the bokeh is really nice round donuts.
