|Coolchu||I got the lens a few days ago and its brand new and works flawlessly. However the auction states that it comes with a soft lens case (as with all L lenses) which I did not get... Did anyone else have this issue?|

|dapoopta||pay the extra money and order it from bhphoto. If anything is ever wrong with a product from bh they swap it out so quickly! I wouldn't trust a random dealer for an investment like this.|

Are all the EF-S options better on the T3i than the EF 24-105mm?
So, if I were to rate these lenses based on quality, it would be:
Seems like the more zoom the less quality. Are there any other lenses I'm missing that would be better? I'm not overly concerned with price at this point--I returned something to Amazon for credit, so it has to be bought through them. I'm a newbie to Photography, but have been a Graphics Designer for over 10 years. Maybe my eye is more picky because of it? I appreciate the help.

Also though, just about nothing looks good at 100% digital zoom. Use the longer lens and zoom in further if you need to get closer.

stop looking at 100%. look at 90%, 50% or just print the pictures out and then look at the print.

Another one, which I personally like better for a walkaround, is the acclaimed 17-55mm f/2.8.

HELP! I recently bought the T3i with the lenses: 18-55mm, 55-250mm IS, 50mm F/1.8 II Kit. Been disappointed with the quality of the 18-55mm & 55-250mm (pictures at 100% zoom look fuzzy/pixelated), so I've been looking around for a better lens. The Canon EF 24-105mm stood out to me, but, because I'm on a cropped body, I've heard it's not the best fit.
Because I usually take pictures when out walking with the family, in a nature setting (or at the zoo, park, etc.), I find myself constantly switching between the 18-55mm (for family shots) and 55-250mm (for nature shots). So my thought was to check out the Canon EF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS or even the Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS. But from what I've read, I'm gaining convenience not quality. Is that true?
So I've checked into the Canon EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS and Canon EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM. But I'm stuck! What's my best solution? I'm thinking it's come down to replacing the 18-55mm with a jump in quality and increase in zoom. Basically, a good walk around solution for the T3i.

$780 for a camera LENS ???
Get the hell out of here. I would not pay that for a WHOLE camera. My under $100 costed under $100 and takes just as good of pics as this lens can.
