Canon EF 24mm f/2.8 IS USM

Review Date: Mar 14, 2013 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $649.00 | Rating: 10 

Pros: Sharp even wide open, USM, IS, 58mm filter size so it is compact
No included hood at this price

I bought this for landscape as my 24-105mm is lacking in sharpness in the corners. This lens delivers. Many are complaining about the price. I agree at $849 it is overpriced but with rebates and discounts I got it for $649 and that is fair for this quality. I could not justify $1500 for the f/1.4. The dxomark score for this lens on a 5D2 is 26 compared to the f/1.4 score of 28.
