Canon EF 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6L IS USM

Review Date: Jan 13, 2009 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Fantastic range, makes band photography a breeze. VERY sharp with my 5D MKII. Great contrast and colour. IS works very well. Great lens with the video mode of the MKII
Cons:
None for me, sold all my other lenses, including a 70-200mm 2.8 and various primes. This lens does all I require.

Great lens with the 5D MKII. Its slowish speed is no problem with the high ISO performance of the MKII for the photography I do. Love the colour and contrast, and am happy to put up with the weight and cost for the incredible image quality. I have NO issues with sharpness, even compared to my 70-200mm 2.8. Which I have now sold as it was gathering dust. This lens stays on the camera full time.

Pros: Resolution, Picture quality, high ISO performance, video performance. Great LCD.
Cons:
None for the way I work.

I only have praise for this camera. The negatives others mention don't affect me, and the video mode is fantastic for what I do, which is low light band filming.
