Re: Very good basic zoom lens

You are one of the lucky ones if you got a good copy. Most people have complained that their copies are decentred to some degree, with one side (more often the left side) being softer than the right side.

It seems to have earned the reputation of being Canon's lens with the largest copy-to-copy variation, and generally not considered to be a lens with great IQ.

Set up on a tripod in front of a well lit (direct sun) brick wall (square to the wall), and take some images at different apertures - most find that it is not even.
