Design and Features
One of undervalued lenses in the Canon’s lineup despite being a quite old lens. An excellent choice for portrait photography and available-light photography due to its large maximum aperture.
The lens barrel is of moderate weight, made of high-quality plastic. The lens mount is metallic.
The lens features AF/MF focus mode switch.
|AF||Autofocus mode with Full-Time Manual Focus.|
|MF||Manual focus mode.|
The lens uses front filters with standard size of 58 mm which are easy to find. They are also inexpensive.
The filter thread does not rotate during focusing which allows convenient use of different types of filters (including but not limited to polarizing and gradient).
The lens is equipped with ultrasonic motor, the autofocus is virtually silent and very fast.
The sharpness is very good across the frame at F/2-2.8 and excellent from F/4. The image contrast is high and the background blur is smooth and pleasant at large apertures.
