    28mm to 300mm FF!
    Slow f/3.5-5.6

    I'm not an expert here, and this is my first review, so bear with me! The lens recently went with me on a vacation to Walt Disney World. I brought my 5D and 30D for this trip. While heavy, I carried the zoom with me most of the time. The significance of having such a zoom ratio made the weight trade off worth it, in an environment where carrying a bag of lenses would have been a bit much. On my FF 5D, the lens is as advertised. I found no image issues at any focal point or aperture. Difficult to shoot "speed" or bracket exposures, but otherwise fine. My most "normal" lens is the EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM (which is my BEST lens!) but for this particular day in the Magic Kingdom, I needed a longer lens option. Well worth it.

    Speed, Sharpness

    This is my "everyday" lens. Scenics are superb at 24mm and portraits are excellent at 70mm. I have zero issues with this lens.
