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

3_5-5
Review Date: Aug 31, 2010 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Great walkaround lens. Great IQ. Sharp. Good build quality. Fast focusing. Modern IS system.
Cons:
Slow aperature. Maybe prone to lens creep.

I bought this lens after reading great reviews of it and was not disappointed. The IQ is equal to that of some L lens and this was one of the best built EF-S lens I came across. The USM focuses fast and captures action shots at a very good hit rate.

Not the perfect lens. I wished it was a constant zoom or a 2.8 to 4.0 range like it's Sigma 17-70 2.8-4.0 OS competitor.
This lens also may be prone to lens creep later on. The demo of this lens at the dealer had bad lens creep, though mine hasn't done it yet.

Pros: Nice sharp images. Light. Good price.
Cons:
Build quality could be better.

Just recently got this lens for my 40D. The 35mm length gives me a closer aspect to a "normal lens" that what my 50mm 1.8 mark II did.

The images this lens give me are clean, sharp with good colors and contrasts.

Yes, the lens is a little noisey, but you have to expect that for an older lens with no HSM.

The one thing I wish this lens had was better build quality. It feels like it's made of the same cheap plastic as the 50mm 1.8. My kit 18-55mm IS lens felt more solidly built than what this lens did and that sells for half the price as this.
