With an on-the-street price of around £600 this is a lovely zoom that focuses quickly and stabilises images wonderfully – its downsides are minor in comparison with these strengths.

    Excellent handling and IS system

A worthy successor to the EF-S 17-85mm IS USM, the new lens boasts a flexible walk-around range with wider-angle coverage equivalent to 24mm, a slightly brighter aperture when zoomed-out, very respectable optical quality (especially at 15mm), along with build quality that's as good as any non-L lens...

  • +

    Flexible range including 24mm coverage., Sharp details into the corners., Quick and quiet USM AF with non-rotating barrel., Smooth manual focusing ring and distance window.

  • -

    Poor vignetting with visible darkening in corners., Modest image stabilisation in our tests., Some creep between 24 and 50mm (actual)., As usual for a non-L lens, no hood supplied.

During testing, this lens has proved itself a capable successor to the popular EF-S 17-85mm IS USM. Although it has some flaws, it is capable of producing excellent results, so long as the limitations of the lens are taken into account.

  • +

    Useful zoom range, Excellent sharpness at most apertures and focal lengths, Image Stabiliser, Good build quality

  • -

    Distortion, Vignetting at 15mm, Flare and ghosting performance (no lens hood supplied)

The Canon EF-S 15-85/3.5-5.6 IS USM , ( compare prices ) ( review ) is an improvement over the lens it replaces, the Canon EF-S 17-85mm f/4-5.6 IS USM , ( compare prices ). Image quality has been improved via the use of two additional aspheric elements and one UD element.

Introduced last year, this extrawide zoom built for Canons with APS-C-sized sensors makes an attractive utility lens for the new EOS 60D or can serve as a wider, longer alternative to the Rebel kit lens.

For almost 30 years I have used Canon EF mid range zoom lenses. Their zoom range has become wider and longer and IS has been added. Most of my work is travel photography, family shots, and garden club power point shows. I do 90% of my shots with this lens.

I purchased this lens 4 years ago, when I first got started on DSLR photography. At the time I did not fully appreciate the lenses options and abilities. Now that I am more experienced all I can say is that this lens provides overall excellent image quality, and a range of 15mm WIDE all the way over...

    Expensive, Lens Creep, Poor in Low Light

13 January 2015

We love this lense as a "leave on the camera" for a grab and go lens for most situations. True, it will be heavier than your kit lens, but it's not that bad and the results are more what you bought your quality camera for. If I could only have one lens and could "only" spend $800, this would be it.

This lens has definitely made a difference in my ability to capture tack sharp images while being handheld. Love the focal range and the minimum focusing distance is adequate for most flower photography that is not micro.

    Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction

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.

Best non 'L' Canon lens of the whole line up perfect for event photography (portraits & groups)

  • +

    compact tight zoom ring, barrel won't telescope out when lens is held downwards fast response auto focus Noiseless

  • -

    a bit heavy, but when used in conjunction with a battery pack attached to body, provides for very good balance

I have a 50D and had been using a 28-135IS Lens. I thought my pictures looked great but I needed a lens that could go wider so I choose the 18-85. Picture look great so far (had less than a week).

Comments about Canon EF-S 15-85mm F/3.5-5.6 IS USM Zoom Lens: This lens has become the latest to a fairly large collection of Canon SLR lenses I have collected, and since I purchased it last October, 2010, it has become my number one "go to" lens for all around use.

    Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Reliable

This is a very good lens. I just opened it yesterday and I won't go as far as to say I am thrilled, but I am very encouraged. The first thing that strikes you about the lens is the build quality.

  • +

    Fast, accurate focus, Best built EF-S lens to date, No lens creep - YEAH!, Center sharpness, Its aesthetically a good looking lens, Very useful zoom range, CAs seem to be well controlled

  • -

    Only 3.5 at its widest and drops to 5.6 as you zoom. Wish it were 2.8 for most of the range, but I tend to think the cost would have been prohibitive for an EF-S lens., If you use the lens indoors and want fast photos, you'll need a flash, you'll need a hot shoe flash to minimize the vignetting at...
