    Sharp, fast, inexpensive

    Once upon a time the 50 mm lens was THE standard camera lens and was THE optical benchmark by which manufacturers were judged and compared. Although the basic lens focus has now shifted (at least at the low to mid amateur level) to zooms - you can still benefit from years of research and development that went into designing the 50 mm lens and this here lens may be the best lens, dollar for dollar, that you can ever buy. The question is can you afford not to own this lens?Years of development have brought us a lens that has a fast aperture of 1.8 - far faster than any consumer zoom lens - and that is sharp as a filed tack. Be forewarned about the sharpness . . . if you are taking pictures of people, this lens is unyielding in its sharpness and may well surprise you and your subjects whose every blemish is captured. The lens has a fabulously shallow depth of field if you want to use the 1.8 aperture to blow out a background. This lens is also ridiculously inexpensive... 5/5 Richard Aubin (Dallas, Texas USA) - See all my reviews, April 10, 2005

    Best Value in Photography!

    Wow! My theory now is that Canon doesn't put this baby as their kit lens because many people would decide that they DONT NEED ANOTHER ONE!

    Excellent Value

    I've had the 50mm f1.8 for about three months now, so I wanted to put in my two cents worth after a little field use. What originally attracted me to this lens was, obviously, the price. It is very, very inexpensive. This is likely due to the fact that the housing is, unlike its predecessor the Mark I, entirely plastic. That initially put me off, but after seeing some images posted that had been taken with this lens (and after seeing the prices of the f1.4 and the used mark I)I decided that I really had nothing to lose. There are, as with most lenses good and bad elements to this lens. Lets start with the bad.Keep in mind that if you are shooting a canon DSLR (as I am) this 50mm lens actually behaves as an 80mm lens, so it isn't that terribly wide. The fact that it is functionally 80mm can make framing shots a bit difficult. This is definitely a secondary lens and really isn't that appropriate for a "walking around lens." At least it isn't for me, as I tend to... 4/5 Ryan Davis (Jersey City, NJ) - See all my reviews, December 30, 2005

    I currently shoot mostly with the canon 50mm 1.4. I was hoping for something more compact that would be great to throw in a rucksack for a day out hiking, or at least just something less bulky. I figured with a 180$ lens, if it was only OK I wouldn't be too depressed about it. I have been continuously impressed with this thing, and I foresee this being as vital a cog in my photo arsenal as has been my 50mm.

    A must have lens for Canon T5i, T6i, 70D or 7D!!

    Customer Video Review Length:: 0:28 MinsAttention pancake lovers: while not making as splashy an entrance as , the 24mm EF-S is a terrific addition to your lens arsenal. In a nutshell, the 24mm STM pancake provides excellent optics at a highly usable focal length, encased in a quality compact chassis making this an ideal walk-around prime for crop senors. Here is a break-down of the reasons why I think you should own this:Pros:-FOCAL LENGTH: At 24mm on crop sensor(Canon t5i, t6i, 70D, 7D), the effective focal length is 38mm, which is an excellent frame size for general all around shooting. (Hence I believe this lens will do for crop sensors what the 40mm did for full frame.). The 40mm pancake is just too narrow on the crop sensor as a general purpose lens making it difficult to take... 5/5 Tom Caradonna - See all my reviews, November 26, 2014

    Sharp, tiny, well made and an amazing value!

    I choose the EF-s 24 2.8 STM because of its small size: mounted on a Rebel SL1, the entire kit fits in my coat pocket. Although petite, construction is robust: metal mount, sturdy plastics, attractive satin finish and a reassuringly solid feel. A few days out and I was equally impressed with the image quality. Here's my take on this wee optic after several months of shooting:FOV: The 24mm coverage of this lens on APS-C format is equivalent to 38mm on full-frame. This moderately wide FOV is ideal for street and landscape photography. Plus, this lens is so small and nonthreatening people tend to ignore it, making candid photography easier and less nonintrusive than with zooms.IMAGE QUALITY: The F2.8 aperture yields a brighter viewfinder and faster shutter speeds in low light than kit zooms. I have no hesitation shooting wide open as it's tack sharp center frame but with silky smooth bokeh in defocused areas. Like most fast primes, corners are slightly softer and... 5/5 P.K.

    Versatile Walk-Around Lens

    This is one of the most popular lenses, and with good reason -- you get a lot of bang for your buck. It has an ultrasonic motor drive (USM) for fast focusing, image stabilization (IS), and a very versatile focal range that covers wide angle to mid-telephoto on a Canon 5D and a respectable 38mm to 168mm (1.6*24 ~= 38, 1.6*105 = 168) focal lengths on cameras with crop sensors, like the Canon 7D, the Canon Rebel series, and cameras with APC-C sensors (1.6x crop factor).Its only downside is its f/4 aperture limitation. On the upside, it has a constant f/4 aperture (i.e. the f/4 aperture setting can be maintained across all focal lengths).- SharpnessThis lens is sharp across all focal lengths. I haven't noticed any degradation in image sharpness on either the 24mm or the 105mm end. However, the lens is sharpest between f/8 to f/11. Outside of this "sweet-spot" (i.e. below f/8 or above f/11) shots of distant objects are *noticeably* blurrier.

    Ideal on full-frame, watch for sample variation

    This lens is perfectly suited to full-frame DSLRs. It balances well on a 5D II, it's not too large, the zoom range is ideal for a walkaround, focus is fast and silent, the aperture is fixed, and the IS system provides at least three stops, perhaps even four.Sharpness is generally good on full-frame. It's not a prime, but surprisingly close at 105mm f/4. At 24mm f/4, the extreme corners (roughly 800x800 pixels each on a 5D II) are blurry. They clean up by f/8. Contrast overall is not abnormally good or bad. Once you start beating on the file in a raw converter, some of these differences disappear. Distortion and vignetting, while not subtle, are literally an instant fix in ACR. On a crop body, this lens has very good sharpness.Like all lenses with sophisticated optical designs, be wary of internal alignment problems. Some copies show uneven sharpness across the frame where one side will be slightly or significantly blurry. The major advantage of ordering from... 5/5 D.

    The Big Kahuna of Normal Zooms

    Introduced late 2005 along with the 5D, the EF 24-105 4L IS USM features Image Stabilization (IS), constant aperture, wide zoom range (4.4x), beefy construction and weather seals.Build Like A BrickFor a normal zoom, it's on the beefy side, 670 g (23.6 oz), but lighter than the EF 24-70 2.8L USM. Build quality is first rate but uses more plastics than L series telephotos. This lens is weather sealed with gaskets at the lens mount, under the switches, and behind the zoom and focus rings. The manual states that a filter must be used for full weather proofing. And all that protects the exotic glass inside: one Super-UD glass element and three aspherical elements. Amazingly, there are 18 elements in that little barrel. I'm surprised light makes it to the other side!Focus and ZoomA ring-type USM (Ultrasonic Motor) achieves focus by driving an internal lens group.

    a great general-purpose lense

    I bought this lens four years ago and have shot around 6,000 photos with it (4000 digital, 2000 35mm). Autofocus is very fast and quiet, which is typical of the Canon USM lenses. I would not recommend a Canon lens that does not have the ultrasonic motor (USM) focusing. Optics are sharp throughout the focusing range.The lens is fairly heavy and after a few months of use, you will likely find that the weight of the glass is enough to make the lens telescope out when it's around your neck. If you want a compact lens that will let you take great pictures in a wide range of settings, this is probably the best lens you could get for a Canon camera. If you're a pro, you'll probably have a backpack full of lenses and you're not reading this anyway, so I'm not talking to you. If you want something you can sling over your shoulder and not think about when you take the kids to Disney World, get a cheaper, lighter lens.The Image Stabilizer (IS) makes the lens a lot more... 5/5 T.

    Excellent Walkabout Lens

    While I considered purchasing a Canon 10D, I also started looking for a good first lens. Most of the reviewers and Canonites on the various forums suggested this lens as a good starting point.The 28-135mm IS USM Zoom is the one I use all the time now on the Canon 10D, and that will be the case until I get over the sticker shock of the 10D/28--135mm combo and start adding other lenses to my kit.In the meantime, this lens gets the job done very well. It gives you good range for a variety of of shots, from portraits to telephotos. There is even a macro mode, which gives you the opportunity to do close-ups--not really a true macro, but okay for shots of flowers, your kitty cat's face, etc. It is the flexibility of this lens that makes it so appealing if all you have is just one lens. And remember that if you mount this lens on a digital camera, like the 10D, the range is actually extended by a factor of 1.6.The USM focuses fast, and the Image... 5/5 Andrew Simmons (Fresno, CA USA) - See all my reviews, June 20, 2003

    Is this lens as bad as some people say it is?

    No it's not especially if you take into account its intended users. If you use a Canon digital SLR and are satisfied with the kit lens (18-55) then buying this lens can be the perfect next step for you. Practically speaking, you will be able to increase your zoom reach to the point where you can A) photograph birds in moderately distant trees, B) be able to zoom in on the other side of a valley and frame something of your interest. Those are just two examples. One thing you will NOT be able to do effectively with this lens, however, is to take sport shots with it. How so? Consider some of the following weakness:*At 300mm zoom range the highest aperture is limited to 5.6 (You will have to use very slow shutter speed to snap fast action shots; remember the inverse relation between aperture and shutter speed.)*The lens size/weight combination makes it hard to hold steady when attached to a camera like the Rebel XT*Slow and often inaccurate auto focus... 3/5 Abdulrahman Aljabri (Jeddah) - See all my reviews, April 8, 2006

    Very happy with this lens

    I see a lot of bad reviews on this lens. I honestly can't see why. If I can capture a squirrel in tall grass 50 feet away, hand held, overcast and in the resulting image I can count the hairs on the squirrels face. The hairs are sub-pixel sized. In other words the lens out performed the sensor. There isn't any thing wrong with the lens. The auto focus selected the subject of the image, not the grass and quickly focused it. Even at full zoom the aperture was sufficient to shoot hand held at ISO400, under cloudy skies. So it's not image stabilized ... Boo Hoo! It also doesn't cost as much as a stabilized lens. You can buy a pretty nice tripod for the price difference between this lens and a stabilized one. Can you get better glass for less, maybe. You can also spend a lot more money and not do better. So unless you are a pro shooting in fast paced environments this lens will do fine. If you are a pro why are you looking at an entry level lens?Something else to consider is... 5/5 Charles A.

    A Telephoto zoom lens to begin your journey in DSLR photography

    For the price range of $150-200, this lens is the cheapest in the Telephoto zoom lens range Canon offers. The cheaper price is because this lens does not have a quiet-n-fast focusing Ultrasonic motor (USM) and neither does it have an in-built Image stabilizer (IS). Instead it has a comparatively noisier DC motor which is not quickest to focus. Also the lens exterior surface is mostly made up of plastic and appears little cheap compared to the USM version or the IS USM.But in terms of picture quality this lens is not bad at all. In bright light with high shutter speed the lens performs at its best. The pictures come out sharp and clean (please check out the pictures I uploaded). In day light condition and at high shutter speed (1/100 sec and above), you can shoot really good pictures (even without a tripod). But I concede that in low light areas/overcast conditions/cloudy and evening light the lens shows its weakness. You will desperately miss the Image stabilizer function. But... 5/5 Vinay Patil "Vinay" - See all my reviews, February 6, 2009

    steer clear of this!

    how in the world are people giving this 4 and 5 stars lol. this a tiny backpack with little to no padding. to be real it has enough to say there is padding in it lol. when i put my camera in the top with my 18-135 attached to it and later open it, ill find that the camera has slipped into the middle section. with that said anything small slips under the dividers because the back part of the bag is really just material so its not sturdy what so ever, so it flexes and lets things fall under the dividers. the lenses stay put, but anything small just slips out and to the bottom its just flimsy and your always gonna worry about setting it down to hard in fear your stuff is going to get damage in side. everything about the bag is cheap. if anyone has children this bag is just like a kids backpack. just somehow amazingly light and cheep feeling. also false advertisement! the last picture has thick padding! the others don't. and thats how the back pack is. if it had thicker padder. i mean... 2/5 chris - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)
