Thought I'd start a thread for the canon ef24-85 3.5-4.5. Not an L, but still a nice little lens with USM and FTM.

I really liked my 24-85 but I like my Sigma 17-70 even more. I found that 24mm wasn't wide enough on a 1.6 crop camera. I sold it for $200 to help pay for my Sigma 17-70. I find the Sigma sharper and it also has much better macro capability. At first I missed the USM and longer reach, but it didn't take long to get over it.

No photos to offer as I used it on a film body, but I had one of these lenses and was very happy with it. Well constructed, fast AF, good range, its basically the lens I most regret getting rid of. It makes a good walk around lens for folks who can't afford L prices.

just picked up one used on Ebay. Question, will a new hood for this fit the older lens?

The 24-85 takes a EW-73 lens hood (bayonet mount) but uses 67mm filters. There are lots of hoods for sale on Ebay. Real ones and also Chinese copies.

Yes, I think the 'II" has flocking inside, but the "I" might also.

Found on the Net:

The Canon EW-73 lens hood was made specifically to work only with the Canon EF 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5 USM zoom lens. There have been two interchangeable versions of this hood, the original EW-73 and the more recent EW-73 II. From the exterior, these two models are almost indistinguishable (except for the Roman numeral “II” added to the model number). Either one will fit perfectly on the lens. The only difference between them is that the EW-73 had a flat black painted inner surface and the EW-73 II uses black "flocking" inside instead.

I dont have any pics handy but i having being using this lens for 8/9 years on an EOS10 film and on my 30D but find its not quite wide enough at 24x 1.6, still deciding if i should trade it for a sigma 17-70 2.8/4 or keep it and buy a 17-50 2.8 sigma/tamron as i need a faster lens as well ?
