I also shoot a lot of portrait, landscape and motion shots and so far, this lens is up for the challenge.
The quality is really good compared to canons base lenses. And proudly made in Japan.
The focus is snappy and reliable.
In low light, the pictures still come out crisp and quite nice.
I give the Canon 1 star for construction, only because the f1.8 version is worse and that unit is my baseline for total crap.
Manual focusing is just plain terrible. The ring is not damped and it feels like there is sand inside the mechanism - feels crunchy and cheap. Not even remotely close to my L series lenses and easily the worse focusing feel out of all lenses I ever held. Don't remember if the f1.8 was this bad but it might even worse than that - the only thing making it better then the entry level 1.8f lens is that the focusing ring is wider. In terms of performance of the focusing (feeling aside) it works fine. It just feels very unsatisfying.
Optically, this lens is great, bokeh is nice and way less noisy then the 1.8f version. Silky smooth especially on a full frame body where it's possible to get a very thin (not razor thin but close) DOF at close focusing distances.
A bit soft wide open as expected but I still love to shoot wide open and to get that great bokeh. Needs to be stopped down for sharp portraits but not necessarily - depends on the look you are going for. Speaking of portraits - perfect focal length on an APS-C sensor body with only slight distortion especially noticible when close to subject. I find it too wide for portraits on a Full Frame sensor camera - when wanting to get a thin DOF and therefore close to subject facial features (nose) will be noticeably exaggerated.Read more ›

In a toss up between this and the f1.8, I decided to put this on my wish list as I had very good experience using one coupled with the EOS3, 5 and 1n 35mm cameras. Read morePublished on Jan. 6 2014 by Nurseunderconstruction
