OK budget lens for full frame, don't bother on crop. At 28mm it gives FOV of 45mm on crop. Thats just not wide enough. it has a very old IS. Image quality is not the best, but good enough as long as you won't be comparing it to lenses like 24-70 2.8. Build quality is OK, barrel will creep, but that is to be expected of most cheap lenses.

This is the lens I bought with my EOS3 in the late 90's, yes, during the film age. In 2006 I bought my first DSLR, 30D, and this lens was pretty much packed away in one of my gear bags as it is not quite suitable with a half frame body. My lens inventory is built by both EF lens from the good old days and a couple EF-S lens for the APS-C frame 30D. Recently I could not resist the temptation to acquire a full frame DSLR at an affordable price and bought the 6D. With the full frame body, the ...

Got it used while my 24-105 L lens was in the shop getting repaired.  When I got it back I compared it in real life shots to the 24-105.  I found there was very little difference on my canon 6d body.   It is lighter and smaller.  I will be using it a lot as my walk about lens.  This will save wear on my L lens.  The L lens will be stricly for busness use

I am using this lens as my walk around lens on a crop sensor camera (Canon 60D)... So far so good with this lens, image quality is Okay, not as Sharp as I expected (I need to do some post production on each photo), Vignetting is not noticeable (May be because of the crop), also colour fringing is not an issue (also may be the same reason) but if I look carefully at the edges I notice a hint of fringing happening... On a crop sensor - especially that I love taking photos of landscapes - this ...

Ok, so on a crop sensor it may not have an exciting range, although 45-218 is not bad at all for a walkaround lens, but that didn't stop me from getting great shots with it on a 450D for 2 years. For a lens that is not supposed to be able to stop motion I was able to take super sharp shots of passing cars from my doorstep with even the registration plate nice and clear - without using Servo. On a full frame camera, like my 1DS MKII, it is excellent, and a good alternative to the L glass when ...

I got this lens as part of kit. I don't use it much anymore, just not sharp enough ultimately and I have other higher end lenses that do a much better job. But, for many, this lens will do a good job. It has great range on an APS-C camera body and when combined with a wide zoom (like the very good 10-22) it makes a good two lens system for many young or casual users. It's size is good and it's IS is a nice benefit for many at an affordable price. The build level is about what you'd expect in ...

This lens is not bad at all if you just bought yourself a 7D. It gives you sharp images and IS is a big help in any situation. The aperture range is also pretty decent and the exposure comes out nice. One thing though, lens creep galore. Hold it facing down and it pops out to 120mm. The build quality is good, but the durability lens. In conclusion, this lens is a good starter for anyone who wants to upgrade after a few months of use.

Using 5D mark11 great center sharpness useful range as walk around lens just dont expect edge to edge sharpness. Problems: Very poor edge and corner sharpness so I bought a cheep Tamron to compare and the difference is great the Canon looks like a coke bottle in corners where the Tamron is quite sharp. Maybe my Canon lens copy is bad

Frankly, I don't know why Canon still makes this lens. I've seen it bundled with the 7D and just shook my head wondering what they're thinking. Don't get me wrong. It's a wonderful lens! But it was never made with digital in mind, and it just doesn't "fit" the vast majority of Canon's lineup (the 1.6x cropped body cameras) due to what becomes a non-existent wide end. (Let's face it: the equivalent 45-215 range on a cropped body basically makes it a mid-to-telephoto range zoom.) Quality can ...

First off, let's get one thing straight... This lens gets a bad rap by the users who "upgrade" to an "L" lens who then feel the need to talk about how wonderful said "L" lens is. Don't get me wrong, every "L" lens I've ever owned has been awesome, but this 28-135mm IS lens is pretty damn amazing all things considered. O.K., so the focal length range isn't ideal for most people using APS-C cameras. It starts at an equivalent 35mm focal length of 45-some-odd mm, not terribly wide. Having ...
