"Awesome walk around lense"5.0 starson by HEVeng
Pros: Size, Quick AF, Weight, Smooth zoom/focus rings
Cons: Barrel Distortion
Summary: This was my first "L" lense. Bought it for the 2005 Detroit Auto Show and now I have taken about 30,000 shots with it on a 300D and a 20D. Works prefect in every situation, but sometimes the AF is a little slow in low light. The AF assist beam from my 580EX fixes this problem. Images are extremely sharp, but barrel distortion is evident on some 17mm city shots with lofs of horizontal lines. Paid $679 and its worth every penny.
Its a great pair with my 70-200 f/2.8L.
For weddings I will start doing in 2006, I may look into the 16-35 f/2.8L to gain a little low light indoors speed.
Thanks for your submission!
