  • Canon EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM

    10 out of 10 points and recommended
    Very sharp, excellent IQ, a good travel and walk around lens, not too heavy
    Lens hood sold separately, cannot adjust the zoom ring when lens hood is reveresly attached

    This is my upgrade from the 18-200 Sigma lens using a 500D body and a battery grip. At daytime, the lens is fast and very sharp. At night time or low light, you have to adjust the ISO or Shutter speed to get a fast and decent images. Looks and feel sturdy, not too heavy, a good partner with a prime lens 85mm or a telephoto 70-300mm for far distance subjects.

    You'll never regret having this lens for your day-to-day or walkround lens on an APS-C body (take note the quality is far better than the kit lens).
