Canon EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM Review.

I purchased this lens a a fill in until I could afford something better, here is my review.

These lenses are now great value on the used market. I recently picked on up s/h from Japan arrived within a week and was in excellent condition. Date code indicates it was built in 2012. I conducted basic iso tests and, at 28mm from wide oped f4 to f11 the image was great accross the frame, at 70mm the center was good from f5.6 but the corners took until f11 to be acceptable. At 135mm the center was good by f8 but the corners took until f11 to be fair.

The zoom ring is quite jerky, but given the price I paid, $150 usd, I can live with it.

Overall for what it is, this lens is quite good and, great value for money. The performance at 28mm was a surprise to me although it does have heavy barrel distortion.
