I take all types of photos. But never really needed a wide angle lens. So I desided to look forsomething not too expensive. Being I had used the Vivitar series 1 on my film camera. I desided to try the 19-35 AF on my Canon 20D. And to my surprise, the images are clean and clear. Focus was fast.Can't beat it for the money.


Fast Focus Bang for the buck clarity and color


somewhat flimsy front portion of lens turns with focus
