I find this lens very useful on APS-C cameras such as the Canon EOS 7D and the Canon EOS 70D, as it gives field of view of 50mm which is good for portraits and general use.
On full frame cameras such as the Canon EOS 5D Mark III and Canon EOS 6D it gives more of a wide field of view which is useful for landscapes and street photography.
I always found this lens to be my most used lens as it is a perfect ‘walk-around‘ lens. I mainly use mine for when shooting landscapes, portraits, indoors and at events. Once this lens is mounted onto your camera it opens a wide range of photographic opportunities.
In terms of its price it comes in at £469.00 which is a good price for a prime lens with image stablisation.
I would recommend this lens to anyone who is looking for a general purpose walk around lens at minimal cost.
