The Canon EF 28mm F1.8 USM is one of the older primes in Canon's lineup, but it remains an attractive lens for use on today's full-frame and APS-C DSLRs. The fast maximum aperture of F1.8 makes it possible to achieve a degree of subject/background separation in medium-length portraits, and when stopped down, this is an excellent lens for street and landscape photography. On an APS-C format DSLR it provides an equivalent focal length of 45mm, making it a useful 'standard'.
