Awsome sharpness and IQ....Good lens....Focuses and takes pictures very fast and works great in an indoor, low light setting....This is a small price to pay as it balances very nicely in the hand and is very well built....I highly recommend this lens if ur looking for the best non L lens canon has to offer.

Sweet and smooth lent...What a lens!...I am BLOWN AWAY by how sharp and clear it is, my RAW images look like JPEGS!...It is sharp, great bokeh... and yes to me the bokeh on this lens looks better than my Nikon....I have both now for over couple of months and I almost stopped using the F4 version as the quality of pictures from this lens are ridiculously sharp.

Excellent all-in-one lens!...a great telephoto...Excellent for general shooting and close-up photography....got it during holidays deal and it was worth spending the $$$$....The only "negatives" is it is a little heavier and a little longer that the standard 18mm to 55mm lens.

Awesome Lens...Great Lens...The combination of this lens with the D610 is quite heavy but very useful for a wide variety of photo opportunities....Everything I wanted, a little bit heavy though, but overall, a great way to go around with just one lens....I am very Happy with this lens and will probably have in mounted on my D750 90%+ of the time.

A Great Lens...Amazing lens....It is very fast to focus and has the right amount of resistance on the zoom ring so you do not get creep....This lens is awesome, it has become the lens that is on the camera most of the time because of it's "just right" range....I notice no image softness, the color is right on and I am very glad I saved a few hundred dollars on this fantastic lens.

Good lens....Nice Shot....Love the lens but it is a little heavy and will creep if not held when shooting in a downward slant....I took my new 18-200 to South Dakota and took amazing landscape photos of Mt Rushmore and the Badlands....This lens works great, but it is pricey almost like buying a new camera but no point of having two cameras with one lens.

Best Lens....cool stuff....I did purchase a Hoya HMC UV filter for the 18-200mm to protect the objective lens glass and it has worked well to keep lens flare to a minimum....You do not have to change the lens at all once you have this lens - the pictures came out looking very professional and I am an amateur photographer who previous to using this DSLR has always used a basic digital camera....This lens quickly drops to the 5.6 f stop setting when you start to zoom and in a gymnasium, theater or foot ball field you will quickly feel the pinch of not enough light to maintain a reasonably fast shutter speed so the action does not get blurred.

Quiet motor....Great standard lens....Although the IQ of this lens is very good and sharp I am very disappointed paying $800 for a lens that should not pass a quality control....The results were not great and I felt my SLR-like point and shoot Canon S2 IS did a better job....I would buy this lens again as it has most of what I want in a single lens and it is on my camera 90% of the time.

Great lense!!...A great complement....I liked the camera but found the kit lens lacking (especially at the widest settings)....I would highly recommend this lens to anyone that is going to buy a Sony Mirrorless camera....Great or event photography where you sometimes have to zoom a bit to get a candid.

Great multi-purpose lens!...Flawless lens....It's so good for landscape photography with impressive wide angle and at 85mm you got a perfect lens for portrait....I bought this lens with my Nikon D5200 instead of the standard 18-55....Do not beleive the BS, it is a bit pricey, but SHARP, sturdy, and a joy to use compared to kit lenses.

Great lense...love it...its a great lens but dont know if its worth the price given that off brand lenses pretty much provide the same picture for a intermediate user....However I have received 2 minor scratches on the edges of this lens out of nowhere within a month or 2 and I have never obtained any scratches on any of my lenses of the 7 years I have been into photography....Focus is fast, images are sharp at all apertures even 2.8 Wish it had IS because sometimes I get a few blurry images at a shutter speed of 125 or 60 hand held.
Canon EF 24–70mm f/2.8L II USM Standard Zoom Lens: Built to handle the demands of professional use, this lens is durable as well as dust- and water-resistant. Fluorine coatings on the front and rear surfaces keep smudges and fingerprints to a minimum.
AWESOME LENS....Love It!...Zoom ring is a bit too stiff but it is better than being to loose and lens sliding out each time camera is pointing down....Probably nicely useful on crop (DX) cameras with 36-130 equivalent zoom, but I have not personally tried that....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.
Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 24–85mm f/3.5–4.5G ED VR Standard Zoom Lens: This all-purpose zoom lens is ideal for amateur and professional photographers. The focal length covers a broad range, allowing you to snap stunning travel photos, portraits and close-ups. Tripod detection and vibration reduction help you create the sharpest images possible.
Great all in 1 lens....Excellent lens!...I am compromising Image Quality for convenience, but so far I can not really see any major issues....I can get all of the great close up shots and the immediately zoom out to get a great panoramic shot without stopping to fumble with lenses....I ride around National Parks and highway around the USA, I mostly pull over and shot from my motorcycle when a good shot presents it self.

This single telephoto zoom lens can keep up with a wide range of shooting situations, from wide-angle groups to ultra-high-power zoom shots.
Great Len!!!...Nice coverage!...I rented one to make sure I was purchasing something that I would enjoy on my camera, and I am extremely glad to have made this purchase....Speaking of F4 it lets in a fair amount of light, I have not noticed any Vignetting at any focal length, but shooting on a 1.6 sensor crops out the edges... Compared side by side with the 28-135 on a Rebel XTi the shots taken with this lens are easily recognizable as more contrasty and sharper....The Image Stabilization system in this camera is great, leave it on always, it's sensitive enough to help even absorb the flicker of the mirror in your camera.
Canon EF 24–105mm f/4L IS USM Standard Zoom Lens: Designed for professionals as well as advanced amateur photographers, this sophisticated lens with Ultrasonic Motor and a Super-UD glass element takes stunning pictures with incredible detail.
