Pros:price, weight, optical quality, af, stabilizer, zoom block
Cons:size, front element game
Opinion:I recently took this lens, after several months of "study" to have a everything do with excellent optical qualities, but at the same time easily transportable to the neck or in hand for a long time. The lens is sharp to all the focal points, already from the whole opening and from the angle to the corner (which over time has made it known), the price at which it is located is low, although lately with little more you can find a good specimen of 24-105 L first series (net of its flaws...). The autofocus is fast, quiet and precise (without having to perform miscellaneous calibrations for f/b focus), the stabilizer is very effective. The main reason why I chose this lens to the other alternatives (f4 constants, or even some universal f2.8) is the weight, the nearest competitor was the 24-70/4 that would not have offered me superior optical qualities, if not 2/3 of stop more at 70mm, but 1/3 less at 24mm and 35mm less side canvases, all at a cost more than double (justifiable, if you need the peculiarities that a series L offers). Among the cons I put the dimensions, because anyway "could be more compact" (yes, but then maybe you sacrifice the optical qualities...). Lastly, the game of the frontal element. Others before me pointed out this flaw, but inside of me I thought "ok, it will be something practically imperceptible, on a lens of economic invoice is normal...". In fact, the game is noticeable, walking with the optics in hand, the simple vibrations of the walk you hear the noise due to internal games (it is not the stabilizer, as in some sigma...). In practice it is nothing serious and moving the front element with the hand while shooting, even at full aperture, the quality of the image is not affected. Let's say this flaw would be important if it were an L-series... For the (carefree) use I will make of it, it is the best you could want! Promoted with flying colours!
Pros:(today 27-02-2020 is located at 319euro online), stabilizer, yield
Cons:"bright" but depends on what it is used and if it is needed, lampshade not included, plastics lower than the L series but depends on how it is treated
Opinion:bought used at RCE at 300 euros with 2 years warranty I did not find impressive differences with the big brother L series indeed.... it is a lens "very constant in performance and yield even at the edge of the photo. both wide-angle and with canvases from 3.5 to 5.6 the sharpness is not amazing but it is VERY constant, imperceptible differences. It does give the best of itself to f8 objectively, and to f16 begins to "fall" but always maintaining the abundant sufficiency. If you need a great everything do, light, cheap, precise is a lens that I would buy back without problems. Of course if you need tropicalization brightness and an extra point of professionalism then better the L series but after 18 years of profession and various 24-105 L tried I can say with certainty that no mortal can recognize the differences, and my emotions looking at the shots are similar.
Pros:price, sharpness, AF, stabilization, lightness, compactness
Cons:none for the price!
Opinion:It costs less than an APSC entry level, but it's a 4.5x zoom lens per full frame... it is dark, of course, but it is largely compensated by the fact that it is always clear, with every focal point and every diaphragm. The distortions do not interest me because they are correctable in posts, and disappear in the face of the extreme convenience of the object being purchased. If we add a precise and silent AF, an always effective stabilizer and weights and clutter all in all (for a real all-rounder zoom lens for FF) reduced, the vote can only be 10: the construction, see above, is the daughter of the price, and it has been seen a lot of pegg me in lenses of much other price range and optical quality. Indispensable to enter the FF world without fainting!
Pros:Sharp already to TA, closing of a stop even better, economical both new and used, excellent focal excursion on FF, IS, block excursion, solid construction apart....
Cons:Game of the tube of the front (although it seems not to invalidate the optical yield) and the blessed lens hood that purchases however compatible to a few euros (the original on Amazon is now under 30 euros but is overpaid the same)
Opinion:I agree with what has already been stated with those who preceded me that enhance their praises and flaws (few fortunately). While accustomed to the sharp and contrasty photos of the Tamron USD SP 24-70 f/2.8 USD that I have now for a few years and I appreciated his notes optical quality, but that sometimes on the tele side I considered a short Pelino, I bought this cheap little gem , even if I thought it could be quite dark, to be accompanied by what I possess for light outputs with only one optic and at most a flash. At the first mounting on both 6d and 80d already after the first shots I realized it was the perfect optics I was looking for, although with APS-c it often takes up either the Samyang 8mm or the Canon 17-40 because of the multiplication factor that starts the lower focal by just over 35m M, but on the other hand I have a tele from 168mm that does not hurt. Sharp enough not to make you regret to leave at home more demanding optics for weight and footprint, discreet in position 24mm provided you do not mount the hood, this handyman covers the overwhelming need of the focal length that most use on FF. The minimum focusing distance of only 40 cm allows you to get close to the subject to be photographed (does not replace the 100mm macro, but is quite comfortable the same), the STM engine is virtually noiseless, as well as the stabilizer. The only drawback is the frontal a little dancer (frequent problem in non-series lenses as well as the emblazoned EFS 17-55 f/2.8 IS) to which I am not accustomed, but otherwise absolutely nothing to recriminate in relation to the price and optical quality of the lens. Highly recommended, rated 9.5
Opinion:Unbeatable value for a handyman, and I said almost everything. The files are indistinguishable from those of the Big Brother, at 24mm it is perhaps better than the Big Brother L and it is also a brighter pelino. The construction is not even remotely comparable to the L series, we warn games on the extended part to 105mm. You buy new at 300 euros and used to just over 200 and it's not really the case to be picky. Recommended to all those who use little/very little this type of zoom, for an intensive professional use better to buy a L series.
