Hi guys,

Looking into S16mm glass for a mockumentary style project, was wondering if people could share their thoughts on the Canon 8-64mm? The zoom range is perfect for our needs, wondering how well it performs and where it falls down.

Cheers,

Mark

I remember using that a long time ago.I liked it a good deal. Not too much else to report as opposed to it Liked it. I don't recall it breathing or having any real problems with it.

Rock solid lens. Nice snappy contrast and color. The close focus is great and the zoom range is, at least for me, ideal. I would recommend it to anyone.
