Best lens available
A bit heavier than most lenses but that's because it is built like a tank, super tough. This lens rates in the top ten ever made by Japanese maker Canon ( rated by Canon and users alike) Wide focal points, F2.8 enables more light, for those darker shots.

Built like a tank, reliable work horse, excellent quality
I have used this lens many times in the past and it's affectionately known as 'old reliable'. Whilst it's too big to be considered a travel lens, I couldn't imagine shooting an important event without it. You've probably read countless reviews that rave about the image quality- they are all true. Probably the most important information I could give you is that this lens is a tank. It's OK to buy used on eBay because it is an absolute workhorse no matter how hard the previous owner pushed it.
