Yes nice deal. Get from store with better CB options. BB will PM as well so you can get their rewards. Using this lens since almost 4 years and it's amazing. It came in market at $2199 and went downhill with competition. Amazing lens though on FF sensor.

How is it on a crop sensor?

Would not recommend, the equivalent 38mm widest focal length is not very wide at all. If staying with crop I would recommend the sigma 18-35mm 1.8 which is excellent. I have the lens featured in this deal and it is great on full frame.

Thanks man. That sigma is already at the top of my list.

Been meaning to get this for a while but the new Tamron 24-70mm 2.8 G2 that just came out looks better for my needs. And it has image stabilization.

This is tailor made for FF but can be used on crop easily. The only downside is the focal length makes it 1.6x. Sharpness wise no issues on either FF or Crop.

Get Canon 17-55 or 15-85 and enjoy. Both are fine lenses. Have used both on crop.

Err how is it great on full frame? There's pretty bad vignetting and you can see the edges of the lens
I think this was referring to the lens featured in the deal, not the Sigma.

I can't decide between this lens or the 16-35 2.8. I mostly shoot landscapes so I'm leaning toward the 16-35.
