      This is a great lens. I bought it so I could take pictures during my recent trip to Morocco. I was able to capture full landscapes and great pictures of groups of people with amazing and full backgrounds. It took some time for me to get used to a fixed focal length (probably because I am a novice photographer) but it forced me to get fully emerged in the shoot and get into some interesting positions to get the picture I wanted. In this way, I feel this lens helped me become a better photographer. Overall, the lens allowed me to capture the exact images I envisioned.

      This lens was a fantastic starting point. When purchasing, I was looking for something a little more bokeh based so I didn't end up keeping it. However, I photographed portraits, scenery, and various other events with it. Definitely not a main lens, but something I will end up buying again in the future!

      I love this lense! I always get clean sharp images. I have zoom lenses as well, but the prime lenses are so much better. I love Best Buy also! I buy all my camera equipment from here They have the best customer service around.

      I bought this lens for my international trip. Never had a wide angle Len before. Used it the majority of the time during the trip. Great lens. Pictures came out clear both days and nights. Great for sceneries.

      This lens is amazing for wide angle shots! I use this lens for landscapes and city scapes on my Canon 7D, and the pictures come out amazing! The lens is best used at about f 8 - f 11

      Canon EF 24mm f/2.8 Review
      Compared to modern equivalents, the 24mm ƒ/2.8 seems to be due for an update. We've had some interesting discussions about the nature of focus and field curvature in wide-angle lenses, and it could be that if you arranged your subjects to matchFull Review

      Canon EF 24mm f/2.8 IS USM Review
      Canon makes an innovative decision to include image stabilization in its wide-angle prime lenses; the lens performs well, better than the lens it is replacing, and the image stabilization will be welcomed by landscape shooters and videographersFull Review
