Image quality results from the EOS 7D Mark II have been added to the Canon EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM Lens review.
 
Since I am primarily shooting full frame cameras, I don't have many EF-S lenses in my kit. However, I have the 15-85. This lens is a great choice for general purpose use. If you have interest in this lens, now is the time to buy. The $100.00 mail-in rebate expires Jan 31st (USA only)

Image quality test results from the EOS 7D Mark II have been added to the Canon EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM Lens review page.
 
The EF-S 10-18 is a very good value, with decent image quality, very light weight and a feature without comparison in this focal length range: image stabilization. If your kit is missing an ultra-wide focal length lens, it is very likely that you would find this lens worth adding.

Image quality results from the EOS 7D Mark II have been added to the Canon EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM Lens review.
 
As expected, the 7D II results show sharper details and slightly more resolution. The bottom line is that this lens is a bargain.

Just posted: Think Tank Photo Airport Accelerator Review
 
The Airport Accelerator and I spent a great 10 days together this fall. If this pack is the right size for you, it is unlikely that you will find a better option.

The Determining the Age of a Canon Lens serial number chart has been updated to include the year 2015. This chart appears to be holding out correctly (or minimally within 1 month of correct) for the latest Canon lenses I have been receiving, so I added the new year to this popular page.
 
Here is the page to bookmark for future reference:

For those of you who were able to completely check out between the Christmas and New Year holidays (we envy you), make sure that you catch the latest review now live on the site, the Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM.
 
Canon may have taken their time in upgrading the venerable 100-400 L, but we think the replacement was worth the wait. Check out the full review to see why.

Image quality results from the Canon EOS 60D have now been added to Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM Lens page.
 
Here is a preloaded comparison between the version I and II lenses tested on the 60D. The difference is very noticeable.
 
Next up: Image quality results from the EOS 7D Mark II. The 7D II is sharper at the same sharpness setting and this should be reflected in the results.

Image quality results from a second lens (presented as Sample 1) have been added to the Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM Lens page.
 
Again, I think that you are going to like what you see. Both lenses perform superbly and the two copies of this lens perform nearly identically. The second lens is very slightly sharper in the corners over part of the focal length range (look at the 200mm and 400mm samples to see this).
 
Here is a preloaded comparison between the two lenses with the second lens presented as the default/left lens.
 
Distortion and vignetting test results are also now available for this lens.

Is the 24-105 STM a lens introduced before its primary purpose?

If I had to limit my Canon full frame DSLR kit to only five lenses, they would be:
 
1. Canon EF 16-35mm f/4L IS USM Lens
 
This lens has many uses, but I do a lot of landscape photography and regard this as the ultimate wide angle landscape lens. The angle of view this lens makes available ranges from ultra-wide through only modestly wide and it delivers very sharp (corner-to-corner) images that make me smile every time I view them.
 
2. Canon EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM Lens
 
The 24-70mm focal length range is my most-used and having a general purpose lens in my kit is important to me. There are some other good choices for this lens, including the 24-70 f/2.8L II and the 24-105 f/4L. If I had only 5 lenses in my kit, I would want my general purpose lens to have IS and the 24-70 f/4L IS has the most-recent/most advanced IS system at this time. This lens has a much higher maximum magnification spec (for macro capabilities) and less distortion at 24mm than the 24-105 L IS (which has a longer focal length range to its advantage). I can't do justice to a list of uses for this lens.
 
3. Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM Lens
 
The 70-200 f/2.8L IS II gets my easy choice for a medium telephoto zoom lens. It delivers very impressive image quality even at a wide open f/2.8 aperture with the capability to create a strong background blur. This lens excels at sports action and portrait photography. It is highly popular with photojournalists and wedding photographers. Landscape photography is another great use for this lens.
 
4. Canon EF 200-400mm f/4L IS USM Lens
 
I love wildlife photography and there is no better general purpose wildlife lens than this one. This focal length range, moderately wide aperture and fast AF qualifies this lens for professional-grade sports photography. This is not a small, light or inexpensive lens, but ... I didn't set a budget limit for my "5 Lens Kit". :)
 
5. Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L IS USM Macro Lens
 
I also love macro photography, for which interesting and colorful subjects abound. Macro subjects are readily available around the house, at the flower shop, outside ... there is never a lack of something to photograph with a macro lens in the kit. The Canon 100 L has very impressive image quality and the hybrid IS feature makes this lens easier to use and especially easier to frame at high magnification subject distances.
 
And then I would start saving to add the lenses I'd still feel lost without. :)
 
The above-listed lenses are my choices for use on a full-frame DSLR. For an APS-C DSLR model, I would swap #1 for the Canon EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM Lens and #2 for the Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM Lens.
 
What are your most important "5"?
