Opinions of 28 1.8?
Feb 16, 2008

I'm considering buying this lens. I have been very happy with Canon non-L primes. I have the 50 1.4 and the 85 1.8, with which I have been very happy, but also need a prime for general indoor (and) group shots, etc. I have the 17-40mm and the 10-22mm, but these are more landscape lenses, and the prime quality is hard to beat.

So, I'm considering the 28 1.8. I also considered the 35 f/2, but the build quality is not as good, isn't USM and has somewhat noisey AF (according to what I've read), although IQ is supposed to be good.

At any rate, I'm interested in opinions of those who have used this lens.

Thanks for any input,
abana
