Canon EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM pt. II
The review is still not yet stopped. HAHA.
I have to admit, I edited these a bit with Lightroom lol. But anyways, if you really want to know why I’m too biased with this lens is because, its quality is VERY Canon.
Notice the signature saturation of the lens itself, and you’ll see that it is indeed, Canon quality. I haven’t tried some of the L lenses just yet (I would reserve this once I get the 5D Mark III when I earn on me ownies haha) but soon, I’ll try to review those things.
But if I were to be asked, the EF-S 15-85mm is the best choice for those who want to take photographs with premium quality. Some would prefer the EF-S 17-85mm lens if they’re on a budget, but its aperture range max. is only f/4, which is lacking, but not to worry, the EF 24-105mm L lens has that aperture too!
Rating this lens, using the GPA system, it is automatically a 4.0 since you don’t need Photoshop to edit your photos if you used this lens.
PROS: Lesser chromatic aberration compared to other lenses; versatile, flexible walk-around lens, full-time manual focusing, smooth focus ring, USM.
CONS: Macro is not 1:3; the usual — apparent color fringing at the extreme focal length ends.
Verdict: A great performer, 5-star.
