10 out of 10 points and recommendedExcellent Image qualityHeavy
This lens has never let me down. It consistently produces great images.reviewed September 10th, 2010 (purchased for $1,300)
I do not say that lightly. I am very particular about equipment and it is not often
that I can endorse a lens this positively.
Focus and images are very good, even wide open.
It is a great lens for weddings and portraits. I use it on a 5D Mark II, a 20D and 50D but it stays on the 5D most of the time.
It has good close focusing capabilities, it isn't a macro lens but it gets close
enough for good wedding / hand / ring images. I hesitated on this verses the 24-105 F4 for the 5D but this was a good choice.
