Canon EF 20-35mm f/2.8L

ef20_35mm
Review Date: Oct 17, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Very good build, sharp and handled nicely. Low price for a L quality wide angle lens Underrated and neglected quality prime
Cons:
USM a touch slower than other L, a bit soft at 20mm Short zoom range

On a DSLR with 1.6x like the 20D, this is the perfect general walk-around lens. Almost tack sharp at 2.8, it just becomes much better as you closed down.

The less than 2x focal coverage from 20 to 35mm is too short. I would have preferred up to 50mm, or at least 40mm.

Even though kind of bulky, the lens feels good and well balanced in hands, and is solidly built. Not cheap construction like some other L lenses.
