I was always impressed with the 24-85 F/3.5-4.5 for what it costs. I believe it's the best sub $200 zoom you can get for a 1.6x body. USM, full time manual focusing, internal focusing, and really compact and lightweight.

The only complaint I really had with it was photos lacked contrast, but that was easily fixable in post.

Here is the sample thread for it.

Be glad you got one - I am - it's being discontinued now that Canon releases the much more expensive fisheye zoom.

Nikkor 24-70 2.8G and 70-200 2.8G VRII


If you mean CANON lenses. Then the 100 macro (classic) was very good.

The 17-55 2.8 EF-S was very good too.

My Nikkor 14-24mm G (on my 5D II) is my best non L lens.

But as far as Canon lenses go, the 50 1.4 and 35 f2.0 were both sharp and great value for money.

I vouch for the 17-55, although I understand why it isn't graded L!

Another vote for the Sigma 50 1.4. It makes my 35L jealous....

The 100macro and 50/1.4 are both excellent lenses.
