Re: Canon 28 / 1.8 USM - as bad as reviews say?

There are lots of people who like it, however, professional reviewers see lots of lenses and are not emotionally attached to one by virtue of having laid out $$$ for it. They check its performance in a standardized way.

You can always tell when someone is emotionally attached, because they start talking real workd performance, meaning that many images hide the flaws in out of focus detail.

I don't think the reviewers say its a bad lens, rather, it performs like a $250 lens and costs almost twice as much.
