One lens to last me.
If I must choose just one lens, this is the one I will pick.
This lens will go anywhere anytime I go. Best multi-purpose lens.

I've always shot with prime lenses but I really needed something versatile and purchased this lens. I'm very satisfied with the performance and picture quality that I get as this is mounted to my 5D Mark 3. As for the price, I think it's way too expensive especially considering that the closure is made of plastic unlike the first versions which is made of metal. This is why I gave the rating of 2 stars in quality because the plastic closure doesn't justify the L Series of this lens. I also believe it isn't weather sealed either but I could be wrong. But it's made in Japan if that means anything. Overall, I'm satisfied.

I was blown away
After talking to several photographers and reading several reviews I decided to sell my old 24-70 lens and purchase the new lens. Well I quickly learned that evertning that I had heard about this lens was true. Sharpness,color,contrast and focus speed was amazing. It was hard to beleive that it was better than my old 24-70 but it was. The only thing that I miss is the huge lens hood.
