I bought this lens to use in low light places such as bars for promotional work. This thing is so much better for me than my 50 1.4 or 18-55 and 55-250. It works. The low light capabilities combined with the wide angle have produced images better than I ever dreamed of straight out of the camera. The IS is an extra feature that I haven't used other than for video. Quick focus. Sharp from edge to edge. I've used this for many landscape pictures and long exposures. The lens rarely comes off my camera. It's light enough for a walk around lens. By far the best lens I own. I was shocked that it wasn't an "L" series lens with how sharp and bright it was. Definitely worth the money. I even bought a friend one I liked it that much.

Review 2 for EF 24mm f/2.8 IS USM
Location: Ellenwood GA

Expertise Level: Professional or Expert
Mostly used for: Business
Canon Customer: more than 20 years
Product replacement: No
Date:July 27, 2012

I own the 24-70 2.8L and the 24 - 105 4.0L. my biggest gripe has been the the lack of sharpness on the edges at the widest angle at 24 mm, as well as the darkness around the edges during indoor group shooting. I purchase the 24 mm 2.8 IS because I was tied of the poor quality of my wide angle group shoots with the 24-70, I must say this lens is a breath of fresh air, I am quite please with the results. I f you find yourself shooting a lot of indoor group shoots, this lens will will make one very happy, I considered the the 24 mm 1.4 L but this is a pleasing cheaper alternative.
