    Canon produces some of the best lenses out there and this lens doesn't get rave reviews for nothing. That is why I ordered it.
    Preliminary tests on 2015/05/06 proved it, but the proof will be in the pudding when I put it to use for some serious photography. I have no doubt, however, that it will be a good performer as I personally know photographers that use it on Full Frame and APS-C bodies. (I needed the lens for a serious photoshoot at the beginning of April already.)

    This lens is much sturdier and heavier than the much cheaper f/1.8 Mkii. Overall it seems to be more robust and well made. I've owned the f/1.8 Mk11 and it is actually quite good for such a cheap lens.

    This is a wonderful product. I will continue to buy Canon products.
