Canon EF 20-35mm f/3.5-4.5 USM

ef20_35mm_1_
Review Date: Dec 28, 2003 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Small, light, fast, quiet
Cons:
Large filter (77mm) size makes certain filters quite expensive.

I have owned the comparable Tamron 19-35 Canon EF mount and enjoyed it. This lens is much nicer than the Tamron, with a better build quality and much improved focus speed and capability when paired with the Canon D30 (which is a weak focusing camera in less-than optimal conditions). This lens "hunts" for focus much less than my other Canon and non-Canon lenses and I believe my D30 is "improved" by using this lens. I theorize that the improvement can be attributed to the USM.
