I don't think the EF 28mm f1.8 USM is great. I don't know a whole lot lenses that I find to render less attractive, to be honest. Both contrast and bokeh are lacking. An EF 28mm f2.8 is a better idea then.

Oh I didn't realize the 28/2.8 IS had come down in price. Yes, for only $100 more that is the 28mm lens to get.

And I said the 28/1.8 was great within its limits.  It's sharp in the center wide open, and across the frame by f/2.8.
