Very good at taking wide angle shots. On a crop sensor it gives you the equivalent of 16 to 35 mm. This is a very good lens for taking landscapes pictures. The quality of the images is very good especially when you're using at F8 or F11. I would highly recommend this land to anybody who enjoys taking photos outside and does not want to carry a really heavy lens. Another advantage of this lens is that it is very light because it is light you can take it more places. One thing to be aware of, is that you must use a ultra Slim filter with lens. If you do not use a really thin land filled or are then you may experience some darkening of the edges of your images. The popular filter to use is a circular polarizing filter keys can be quite expensive if you get them. Note that this lens is not an L lens, even though it has L lens image quality. I have heard reports from lens rental services have a lot of problems with the durability of this lens.
