Extremely Pleased

By

from Fort Worth, TX

This has been my favorite lens so far. I have another fixed lens of Canon's that I fell in love with & both are great. The images are crisp and clear and they are sturdy/durable.

Quiet, fast autofocus. ...

By

from Philadelphia, PA

Quiet, fast autofocus. Very useful field of view - I use this as my walk around lens on a full-frame camera when I go hiking. Wide enough for light landscape / architectural use (though, if this is a primary need of yours, you probably want something wider). Not so much distortion that shots of people are unusable. For me, it's in the sweet spot. It's plenty fast and I'm impressed with the sharpness.

Almost great

By

from south carolina

I've used this lens for some video shoots and have gotten some amazing results. On a full frame, it's great for wedding receptions, concerts, etc. Sunstars are nice and it handles light really well... for the most part. In some photos, I've gotten some really nasty chromatic aberration. However, I still love it. Everyone needs a wide angle and this is a good one.

I LOVE THIS LENS!

By

from Colton, CA

This is the 4th lens (all Canon) that I purchased for my full frame 5D Mk II, and I love it. This lens has relegated my slower mid-range IS zoom to the closet. In a side by side test at 28 mm in evening light, the images this lens produces blows those of my slower mid-range IS zoom away! I prefer this lens for walk around and events - basically anytime I am not shooting portraits. It feels light and not bulky, makes my camera much more enjoyable to carry around. On top of that, it looks great and feels very well built. The only reason I didn't 5 stars for: Features - is it is simple - which is a good thing. What more does it need? Performance - I have read that certain other fixed L lenses have very slightly more contrast at apertures wider than 2.8, which is hard for me to believe after using this one. If I hadn't read that, I would have given this lens 5 stars. Quality - 4 stars only because it is not metal, but it feels solid like metal, and thank goodness it isn't metal because otherwise it would be heavier. Since you are reading this, you obviously think you might need a fixed 28 mm. My suggestion is stop reading and just buy this lens - you won't be sorry - unless you feel like you want to spend more on an L lens ...

Canon lens

By

from Scottsdale, AZ  -  Semi-pro Photographer

It is wide enough for the Grand Canyon, but not too wide (or fish eye). It is quiet, and worked well shooting Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesin West a week ago.

Quality construction, great pictures

By

from Chicago, IL  -  Photo Enthusiast

I bought this lens for indoors and low light photography. My go-to lens has been the Canon EF 50mm f/1.8, but it is too tight indoors. Although I can't tell whether the photo quality is any better than my cheap 50mm, this lens definitely feels more durable and made with better materials than the 50mm. The autofocus seems pretty quick and also very quiet.

My new favorite lens

By

from South Lake Tahoe, CA  -  Photo Enthusiast

I got this for my crop sensor t3i and it is awesome. I have used it for night shots and landscapes so far and it seems real sharp. Excellent in low light situations. The focal length is great for an everyday walk around lens. This will be mounted most of the time. I will be retiring the 18-55 kit lens for this one.

Fast Primes Are Your Friend

By

from Ohio

I bought this lens because I wanted a fast prime. That's precisely what I got. As the other reviews have said, this lens works out to be very close to an actual nifty fifty focal length on a crop sensor like the T3i. In hindsight, I probably should have gone with a 35mm or a 50mm, but that has nothing to do with the quality of this lens, just my preference. When I pulled this lens out of the box, I was thrown off by the weight. Coming from only having kit lenses before, the weight for the size of the 28mm was surprising to me. It's still very compact and wieldy, which is very nice for just bringing a camera and a lens with you on a trip. The working with a f/1.8 lens is great. Because of the fast aperture and short focal length, IS really isn't necessary. As I mentioned earlier, this lens works out to be roughly a 50mm, which I like because I learned on a film camera with a fast 50mm lens. However, you will still end up with the wide angle distortion. On a full frame camera, the field of view is quite stunning. Great for medium to small rooms or getting a close foreground and distant background.

Shopper  Is this teleconverter compatible with anon camera eOS 1000d Rebel ?
JONATHAN S  Yes, this lens kit will work on your eos 1000d (in the US that is an XS rebel). So this 28mm lens will equal about a 45mm on your camera because it is a crop sensor. All canon EF and EFS lenses will work on your camera.
