Jamie , Harlow High quality, low cost

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Very hard to take a bad photo with this lens. Its clean and sharp and very light, the lightest in its range of L class lenses.
When on a full frame camera its really wide, perfect for interior photography or landscape. On a APS-c (1.5 crop factor) camera its the equivalent of a 28-70mm Lens which makes this lens really adaptive to my needs. Verdict - You need this lens if you don't have a wide angle in your bag!
Bad points:
Its a physically wide lends and the hood does not quite fit in the bag when its on so I tend to leave it off loose when packed away.

Alex, Bournemouth Semi-Pro Photographer

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Typical L lens, great build quality and very sharp. Canon's pro series doesn't disappoint.
Wide angle zoom lens are brilliant and versatile, this is about as wide as you'll ever need unless you want to do fisheye photography.
A must for landscape photographers.
Pouch & Lens Hood
Dampening on the focus and zoom ring are excellent.
Full time Manual Focus.
Bad points:
Overpriced (but isn't all photography gear!)
f4 (but constant at least)
A little soft in the corners on my full frame 5D MkIII but probably a non-issue on any cropped sensor Canon DSLR
