Review Date: May 7, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $800.00 | Rating: 7 

 
Pros: Fast, built well
Cons:
A little pricey, even used, hood is all but useless.

Using this lens on a 10D, I really have no complaints. I was going to sell this lens and purchase an ultra-wide prime, but I keep re-thinking that decision. This lens is great for outdoor car shows where you don't have a lot of room between the vehicles.

Canon ultra-wides, especially the zooms, have a bad rep for sharpness. Either I got a better than average copy, or it is an unearned rep. Maybe people are expecting too much out of a super wide angle lens.
