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

Review Date: May 12, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: nice wide-angle range, sharp, good build quality
Cons:
not as sharp as I expected it to be at wide open.

I recently did some tests with 1:1 enlargements and found out that there is indeed a large difference in sharpness between wide-open and say, f/8. Not that it's bad. Not at all! A fine lens which is really versatile and very suitable for landscape.

Review Date: May 12, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: light, sharp optics, very lightsensitive
Cons:
a bit too much plastic for my taste, AF tends to hunt and is not really fast.

Everything is said... optics are great, lightweight, versatile. I wish they build it a bit more tank-quality like we are used from Canon.

Bought it secondhand, never felt sorry for spending the money. This is a lens that everybody needs, even if they don't know yet.
