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

    10 out of 10 points and recommended
    very useful focal lenght range, fast focus, image stabilisation, 7 diaphragm blades
    lens hood not included, price for EF-S, filter size (72mm)

    - very useful focal lenght range (24 - 136mm)
    - fast and silent focus
    - image stabilisation (mostly sharp images with 0,5s exposure)
    - 7 diaphragm blades (14 pointed star at night photos)
    - sharp especially at f/8
    - lens hood not included (price over 30EUR~40USD)
    - vignetting at 15mm
    - CA (15mm & 85mm)
    - filter size 72mm (only few lens with this filter size)
    - price for EF-S lens, not copmatible with full frame body (550EUR ~ 748USD)

    One of the best Canon all-purpose lens for APS-C sensor. Could be better with constant aperature 2.8 :-)

    Highly recommended for user with no plan to future upgrade to full frame body.
