Comments about Canon EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM Standard Zoom Lens:
This is an amazing lens! Absolutely love it. Using as a "walk about " lens and love the extra at the wide angle end from my previous 18mm. Quick to focus and photos are clear, sharp,& colors vibrant. As close to an "L" lens you can get. Has been said its heavy & it is a bit but you get used to it quickly. I can deal with a bit heavy to get the quality this lens puts out. Haven't noticed the lens creep some comment about.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

About Me Semi-pro Photographer
equavalent of 24-136 mm on a full frame camera. the only lens made that goes that wide and that long, offering the user a good wide angle perspective for landscape,useful indoor coverage of rooms and good on the long side for portraits, etc,not cheap if compared to the full frame 28-135 mm, the 17 to 85mm or the 18-135mm apsc. what you get is a lens that will give you great results at all focal lenghts and f/stops,the same can not be said about the previously mentioned lens. for those who need a wide to mid telephoto zoom and wish not to compromise quality and can afford it this is the lens one needs to have. i purchased this lens and sold my 17-40mm f/4L, which is great for super wide angle shots when i owned a 5d mark2,i sold that camera after realizing that it was a waste of money having both formats plus i mainly shoot for fun.please dont misunderstand me the 5d mark2 is a remarkable camera but deciding only to use the apsc format allowed my 70-300mm to be a 112-480mm.i do miss the true 17 mm my 17-40mm f4L gave me on the full frame but it was only 28 mm on a apsc camera again based on cost i choose to stay with the apsc format only.
Expensive but worth it
from New York
Works great in low light and when a fast focus is required. I use it for weddings.

I took this lens to Bangkok and debated bringing a 70-300 telephoto as well. Never needed it. The range covers everything and the photo quality is excellent. I often shoot at hip level on the street to avoid attracting attention, and the focus is so fast I get great shots even at night.
from Niagara Falls, Canada
I purchased the lens after looking at reviews that I have read from a number of photography sites. I was not disappointed in the product.

Received this lens just before Christmas. It worked wonderfully to capture Christmas morning. Also have used it outdoors to capture scenery and kids. Photo quality is sharp. Having the lens for about one month so far and shooting over 300 pictures, I am very pleased.
Great all around lens
from St. Louis, MO
This is a great all around lens. It's not an L lens, but it's as close as you can get. Great color, range, and quality. Quality at a good price.
