Image qulity is superb. F/2.8 is simply what I want.

In some certain conditions, the focus speed is slower than some other expensive lenses, but not an important issue.

Tom, London Amateur Photographer

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Excellent replacement for the Canon 18-55 Kit Lens on the 550D. Superior image quality and I'm now struggling to see how Canon's 17-50mm f/2.8 is justified by the significantly higher price tag. The marginal improvements in image quality, for me, are just not worth it. An outstanding lens.
Bad points:
It can sometimes struggle to focus in low light conditions, not really a problem. Build quality could be better, if we're being honest though all things considered this lens is magnificent value for money. A worthy alternative to Canon's 17-50mm f/2.8.
