Very good...Good lens....Focuses quckly.Pictures come out great....I have a more expensive lens but because of size, weight and the capability of this lens - I find myself grabbing this one because it's easier to carry around and does a great job for mid-distances such as a beach trip, hiking trail, graduation party......I believe I saved nearly $150 on the lens and much cheaper than buying the one lens that replaces the freebee that comes with the camera and this one being reviewed....Good lense, I bought this for my Sony alpha a6000 camera and it works great... Recently put it to use on a family trip to San Francisco and was able to take great quality pictures

NOT BAD...Awesome !!...Easy to use....great focus....very nice shots!...I am sure a full pro would nitpick problems with it, but as a prosumer, I find it works great for professional shots on professional websites and promotional materials....TLDR: It will work great if you do not mind using a tripod, but if you are looking for more portability, get one with an automatic image stabilizer....quick and easy to attach, love the way it takes pictures from a distance and the look like you are right at the object you are taking pictures of.

Love it...Good deal....In focus and clear....Great new lens for a beginner like me... Great new lens for a beginner like me...it allows me the extra range from the kit lens that came with my Nikon D3200....I can get close ups of people with interesting backgrounds - although admittedly from a farther distance than I am used to - as well as interesting architectural details not possible from my 18-55mm lens....Need to be careful while changing from auto to manual focus otherwise the lens get stuck inbetween forcing you to turn off the camera and turn it on to reset the auto focus motor.

Love this!...Good buy!...Fast focus, great wide angle and very quiet....So I definitely do not recommend it for landscape shooting inclement weather, but for nice weather (like Los Angeles all year round) or indoor photography, this is a great lens to consider....On top of all of that, this lens also includes the STM focus system which allows you to record video and have the lens focus almost completely silent....I found it to be fun to use, and that is probably the most important thing for me since I have more fun taking pictures than I do working with or even viewing them.

I love it!...Excellent lens...FOCUS IS AMAZING AT ANY LENGTH....It is more expensive that a few others I tried, but it focuses better in low light action pictures, which is important to me....if you are looking to upgrade from the hefty and annoying flipping of lenses from the 18-55 and 55-200 mm then this is the lens for you....Excellent telephoto zoom lens that enables you to take a variety of shots without needing to switch lenses.

Love it....I love it....It focuses evenly, edge to edge....The zoom range filled a gap in my lenses and permitted me to capture the images from a distance that I might not have otherwise been able to get....After looking at several lenses in the Honolulu store and speaking with one of the clerks as well as testing it out in the store, decided that this lens was perfect for the kind of work that I do....It has the Vibration reduction, which is great when taking hand held shots, but you definitely need to turn it off when you are taking photos on a Tripod.

Best lens....Supurb lens...It focuses very fast and accurate....I have only had this lens for a few hours and have only shot images inside (It's below zero in MN!) So far I am simply amazed how smooth and fast this lens focuses....It is my new goto lens.The photos from this lens are the best I have ever shot.If you are looking for a great lens get this one.My only regret is I had to buy this from amazon because best buy has not had it in stock for months....Never shoot below 1 - 125 shutter speed anyway so not quite sure how IS performs compared to non-is but it is definitely sharper than the non-is version.

Good lens....great lence....Great bokeh, fast focus, and built to last....High quality lens that provides a substantial upgrade from the standard lens that comes from the camera....The lens only downfall is that it does not have a macro/micro switch which would make it even more versatile and all-in-one....Great range and good for everyday camera use, although this camera may not be the "everyday" use kind of model.

Great Glass....enough said!...Fast and quiet focus with great glass....I cannot think of a purchase that I have ever had so much enjoyment learning to use, using, and getting the most AMAZING results from....I purchased this lens to take on a whale watching trip out of Seward, it performed well and the results for a first time using were great, the image stabiliser worked well when hand held....I really enjoy the close-focusing capability of this lens (ie, how close to your subject you can be, and still achieve focus.) In many ways, it performs like a macro lens that way, letting you fill much of the frame with a closer subject and blur out the background pretty decently.

Good Lens....Love this!...Fast focus, crisp images nice lens....I find this lens to be perfectly suited for my needs, it does exactly what I expected and a price-point that is hard to beat for new equipment....Really great for wide shots of architecture and landscapes, and zoomed in nice results of portraits - close-ups - the textures - tones captures can be quite rich actually....Probably nicely useful on crop (DX) cameras with 36-130 equivalent zoom, but I have not personally tried that.

Great glass....Glad I did....Sharp and fast focus....The lens makes for great images and works well across the entire focal range, which encompasses virtually all of my day-to-day images....While not really required the tripod mount provides a better balance - otherwise the camera lens combination tends to be somewhat front loaded specifically when used on light-weight DSLRs....I also point out that if you are shopping for a body, you can get a great deal on a 5D (MK II or MK III) or 6D kit, which includes the 24-105 f4 L.

Good deal...Nice Lens...Sharp, quiet focusing lens....I am just beginning learning how to use my new Canon DSLR, but I do like having this lens when I need to shoot across wide expanses (over bodies of water or across a field)....Lens does great with close ups; not as good with objects in motion, but may be because I have not learned everything about it yet....The image quality is good but is certainly not going to rival a high-end lens like the Canon 70-200 L. I am please with this lens.
Snap sharp, vibrant photos at a distance with this Canon EF-S 8546B002 telephoto lens, which features a 55-250mm focal length for flexible zooming and optical image stabilization to reduce the effects of camera shake.
Good so far......Very good lens....The focusing is fast and extremely smooth....You can still get nice bokeh with good lighting, and for landscape photography you will probably not miss the extra stop anyway....If you do not need the speed and extra stop of light, save yourself money and buy this lens instead of the 16-35L....In city streets and markets you get a sense of being surrounded by activity and this lens captures a great majority of it.
