Review Date: Sep 22, 2010 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,300.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Built, sharpness, contrast, speed,
Cons:
After 2 bad copies, my 3rd is a winner !

@ Canon - need to have better quality control.

My first 2 copies were bad. Soft focus and the focus hunt in low light situation. I almost regret upgrading it from my Sigma 24-70mm F2.8.

I got my 3rd copy this year. I love it ! I Love it ! I love it! Finally got a great copy, fast focus, great built quality, razor sharp, excellent contrast & bokeh. Attaching this to the 5d2 and they are a match made in heaven. I love the image it produces, and it great to use in low light situation.

Pros: Light weight, Sharp, L built, inexpensive compare to other canon UWA, and Fixed F4
Cons:
I have none so far

I have this lens for one week on my 5d2. I love the UWA and different aspect to my image it provided. I bought it used but I got an ultra sharp copy...almost as sharp as my Canon 24-70mm, therefore it stay attached to my 5d2 75% of the time now.

I think this is a great buy especially on the 2nd hand market where the price range between $500-600. Compare to the canon 16-35mm at 1/3 the price, this is a steal. Overall, I mainly using this for landscape so so f4 will do just fine, but when stop down to about f8, this is especially sharp.
