Canon EF 28mm f/1.8 USM held a lot of promise on paper - a well performing fast wide angle prime, with silent and accurate AF system in a compact and light format that is affordable to a mainstream photographer. Unfortunately, in the real life the lens does not come even close to all these promises.

The Canon EF 28mm f/1.8 lens was evaluated for use in wide field astrophotography. The following information on resolution and 50% MTF is applicable to all photographic uses of the lens.

Handling and features This classic wide angle prime from Canon provides a wide angle field of view, fast, silent focusing and a bright f/1.8 maximum aperture. With this lens costing around £380, could it be the perfect budget solution for hand held low light shooting?

This lens I find myself using when evening hits or when I want that nice framing that a 28 has. I really like the low f stop, albeit better a click above and without the noise exhibited in this lens, but the results - you can't complain.

    Slow Focus

This is the 4th lens (all Canon) that I purchased for my full frame 5D Mk II, and I love it. This lens has relegated my slower mid-range IS zoom to the closet. In a side by side test at 28 mm in evening light, the images this lens produces blows those of my slower mid-range IS zoom away!

    light, fast, quick autofocus, looks / feels well built, small, sharp, makes beautiful images easily, great event lens, quiet

  • -

    none - just buy it

This is one of the most beautiful lenses I've ever used. It's ability to take great portraits is insane. The high f/ stop is so fantastic when taking photos in a theater, too.

This has been my favorite lens so far. I have another fixed lens of Canon's that I fell in love with & both are great. The images are crisp and clear and they are sturdy/durable.

Just an overall phenomenal lens. As a videographer, I assign my second shooter to this lens for gorgeous wides with shallow D.O.F. at a reasonable price. Just a beautiful piece of glass. Every photographer should have one in their quiver.

Their is a little noticeable barreling around the sides, so be careful if straight lines are important. (As with all wide-angle lenses) Good balance, good size.

    Purchased this lens for my Rebel XSi. With the XSi all lenses have a 1.6 multiplying factor, so it looks like a 50mm on a film XLR. I wanted something fast for indoor photos without a flash. Focus is critical. Good color and detail when you set up the photo correctly.

    You have to force this lens f-stop down to get good depth of field. Some like the 'bokeh', I don't. I go for f10-14 on a tripod and I am happy.

I have discovered a hidden gem in the canon EF lens lineup! The EF 28mm f/1.8 USM lens has never really received exceptional praise or glowing reviews. I honestly don't know why! On digital SLRs (namely full frame and 1.6x bodies) it's perfect for available light photography.

  • +

    F/1.8 is a definitely bonus!, Fast AF, Decent build quality, Not too expensive, Works on any EF-Mount camera.

  • -

    Could be a tad bit sharper wide open (fixable in post production however), Small amounts of CA can be seen at wide apertures (also correctable), Plastic vs. metal construction (personal preference)
