Misc. Normal Lenses

Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM Lens

The classic general purpose zoom that delivers great image quality, but at the expense of weight and focal range. This lens also uses a novel reverse zoom design combined with a large hood that provides optimal shading at all focal lengths.

Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM Lens

A very versatile general purpose zoom that delivers sold image quality in a weather resistant package with a constant f/4 aperture and a 3-stop IS system.

Canon EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM Lens

A versatile general purpose zoom that delivers more flexibility than its L counter parts, but at the cost of image quality, a constant aperture, and weather resistance. The 1998 design isn’t as good as more modern lenses, and the first generation IS system is limited to 2-stops.

Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM

The Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM offers solid image quality in a well built package that comes with the novelty of being a diminutive pancake design and at a low price point.

Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II Lens

Canon’s least expensive lens, and also one I can’t recommend. The image quality isn’t bad, but the AF system has trouble delivering focus. It’s successor the EF 50mm f/1.8 STM is a much better built and preforming lens.

Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM

Canon’s EF 50mm f/1.8 STM is a decently preforming normal prime that’s reasonably well built and priced very affordably.
