"I've hesitated for years on buying this lens and I now wonder why! I've used it on my Canon 7D Mark II and finally I have a piece of glass that can keep up with the quality of the camera. Colours are bright and the focus is sharp. Obviously with the 2.8F stop, the lens is fantastic in low light conditions, and blurred backgrounds are very easily achieved, which can really make a difference to your photos. The build quality is excellent, as always, and it has a very robust feel. You should be aware this is a heavy lens - that isn't an issue for me, as I already have a heavy camera body and I find it a small price to pay for the quality of kit. However you do notice the additional weight when it's around your neck! Basically if you have been thinking about buying a 2.8 lens, just go for it - you won't be disappointed. Finally though, I feel that Canon should include a hood for the price, like most of their competitors do. I have reduced my review to 4 stars purely for this reason. "
