|savinmoolah||This is a great lens. It came with my 6d kit. I've shot it since Dec 2012 and it's performed wonderfully and the image quality is amazing. I'm always a little nervous about buying grey market goods that don't have a warranty. You're definitely rolling the dice, but the odds are probably in your favor. You're saving $300-ish with this deal so that's probably worth the risk.|

|canonikon||good price, no warranty isn't an issue. Usually 99.9% these lens have no problems within a year anyway.|

|Tike71||In LR4 the clarity slider usually gives off haloing effect in the high contrast areas. The thing with using presets and not fine tuning afterwards is sometimes the effects are boosted beyond the boundaries of good taste.|

This is called panning the subject. Google "Panning Photography"
Is that image edited? seems like you did a mask on Photoshop
No, its not photoshoped. Simply put, I metered the shot for the tree - with no sun in the shot. Lock the exposure - recompose & zoom out to bring the sun in the shot. As sun was almost down - I did not get a silhouette of the tree. Hope that help. For sky, I used the big sky preset for the LR4.

The difference between 15 and 24mm is quite a bit. Also, the 15-85mm is a very good lens so I wouldn't look too much into it not being "L quality" (which it very may well be, it's just an EF-S lens). You will lose some on the wide end but you'll also gain some on the tele end with the 24-105. I would make the decision on which focal lengths are more beneficial to you, not the "L quality" factor. Although, another consideration may be if you're thinking about upgrading to FF in the near future, the 24-105mm might be a worthwhile investment. I use my 24-105mm and on a crop body, it's wide enough for me, even for just about all group shots.

|deals2dream||I have 60d and t4i. I am using 15-85mm f3.5 to 5.6 lens paid $600 just a week ago. Should I return and get this one instead? My concern how does 24mm look and crop sensor bodies? will i miss the wide angle a lot and be compensated with L quality?|

Lens is known for quality issues. You are better off paying a little more to buy from an authorized dealer. I had send mine to Canon to get it fixed.

it was a frontpage deal at $300 from buydig.
I have it and it is GREAT as a walk around anything can happen lens. picture is not as sharp as this lens but it's half the cost and more versatile

How did you do that shot of the guy in the bike in motion?
Is that image edited? seems like you did a mask on Photoshop. theres some "white fluff" around the trees and lighting on the cloud is "different" (sorry for lack of better terms I'm new at photogrpay and PS and just learning and seeing how people come up with their images)

|anonimis06||Great all-around walk around lens for all Canon dslrs. Use it on my 60D along with a few primes and a UWA and 70-200. Not the fastest lens but paired with a good off camera flash, it gets most jobs done, at least for me.|
