Any L or non L lens that I've owned that said Canon on it. They have all required manual adjustments. Right now my worst lens that I own is the 70-200 f2.8L IS.

Just to clarify, the 28-80 L doesn't suck, just in case anyone is thinking of getting one!

This is correct! I have a small plastic certainly non L lens

Not 100% happy with my 50 f1.4. The only reason I still have it is for the f1.4.

Worst lens I owned was a Pentax 135mm f/3.5.

WARNING!: Before commenting that my color correction is horrible, please keep in mind that I am colorblind, and that hasn't stopped me from trying.

The worst good lens I have have is probably the Sigma 50mm f/1.4, but it's still been darn good lens for me. The worst lenses I've used are a Tamron 18-200, and Tamron 18-280, they both lasted less than a week for me.

Mine was the Canon EF 100-400 F/4.5-5.6L IS. It would focus fine up to about 350mm then that was all she wrote. Gave it to my sister, Merry Xmas...

A lens I loved was my 600f4; it died a couple of years ago and can't be repaired (the electric motor that drives the AF went kaput). So I'm sitting with a lens I love and can't use :-(

Canon 28-200 f3,5-5.6.


Your at 5.6 before you know it, poor image quality, dodgy autofocus, and loud! But pluses are a good zoom range, and rugged, it'll do most things and you don't have to worry about damaging it. I know that my 300D and this lens took a tumble out of a tractor, I just gave them a bit of a dust down and they were grand. If it was an "L"lens I would probably have been needing CPR!

Canon EF 28-105mm f/3.5-4.5 USM.. "MACRO" version

Not wide enough on 1.6 sensor. Never use it. Bought it with the EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM & use the macro for everything.

Selling soon!

Canon 100=300mm f/4.5-5.6 that my dad gave me when I first got into photography 3 years ago. Has poor IQ, slow af...then I dropped it and it got poorer IQ and slower af. Now it sits on my shelf next to all my old film cameras.

Another vote for the Canon 50mm 1.4. Mine is soft at all f-stops. I'm going to sell it and re-aquire a 50mm 1.8


1Dx - 5DIII - 40D - Canon 24-70LII, 100L macro, 135L, 16-35L, 70-200 f4 and 100-400L lenses
