The suitability of gear depends on what you want from it and what you are prepared to do to get it. That means not only money, but also what you are prepared to carry. The kind of photography I enjoy most is outdoors, travel and wildlife photography. Within those differing genres lie a wide range of photographic opportunities and requirements: everything from panoramas to close-ups of detailed objects. It is totally pointless to compare this unit to a fixed-focal-length lens - they are made ...

Superb lens.  I have had it a long time ... about 6 years + I think.  I originally got it for a 10D and then a 1DS II ... it is now used on a 5D III.  I have always been impressed with the image quality and colours/contrast produced by this brute of a lens.  It is heavy but really is an all in one lens.  My wife, who is a professional photographer, swears by it for weddings if at a varied venue where there is enough light.  You are hard pushed to tell in the real world difference between ...

I heard that this lens was heavy, yes is really heavy, but after i received I didn't change it back, this is my new everyday toy, sharp pictures, fast focusing. Build quality is definitely that of the 'L' series, is much slower than primes, I always keep my 50mm f/1.4 just in case a low light situation. I like the fact that has a broad range from 28-300mm and it is very versatile Problems: heavy no good for low light conditions
