Canon says: more EF-S lenses

Re: Thanks, JP.

Basically, yes. A 28mm lens designed for a FF camera might, however, produce more of that geometric distortion than a 28mm lens designed for a 1.6x camera because, intuitively, it's trying to take all that light it captured on the front end and spread it out over the backend in a circle large enough to cover that FF sensor.

So, if I
understand you correctly, I should be quite happy with a 28mm lens
on my DRebel for portrait work? i.e. since I will be standing
farther away from the subject than I would have been if using the
same 28mm lens on my old film camera, the 3-dimensionality (if I
can refer to it in such terms) should be about the same as I was
previously accustomed to with my 50mm lens? Is that correct?
