Rated 5 out of 5 by from All in one This lens is the all in one package, anything from landscapes, portraits and all else in between it does it. The focal range of 24-70 makes it a perfect travel lens, being 2.8, portraits and low light are no battle for this lens either. An essential lens for all purposes & a musthave in the camera bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Working Photographer's Lens I bought this lens as a bit of travel gear but it has very quickly become my most used bit of equipment on the job. I've shot product campaigns for international brands, weddings, and portraits with it and it's hands down the sharpest, most solid bit of glass I've come across. It's my desert island lens.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Lens! If I were to only have one lens, this would be it. Solid glass, sharp, fast and the perfect distance to work with for majority of my work in the adventure industry. Whether its shooting portraits or action, this lens is an all time classic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excelent Workhorse If I had to pick only one lense for the rest of my life, It will be this one. Its my workhorse for fashion photography and editorial work. Very versatile, I've shot fashion campaigns inside cars and move to tight portraits with the same lens
