Canon 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 Overview

The EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM Lens from Canon is a compact and lightweight zoom lens that offers superior optical performance plus a built-in Image Stabilizer. The IS system reduces blurred photographs caused by camera shake and allows for handheld photography in comparatively dim light without a flash or tripod. At the wide-angle end of the zoom range, the equivalent shutter speed gain is approximately 1.5 stops while at the telephoto end, it is approximately 2 stops.

In addition, the lens has an Ultrasonic Autofocus Motor (USM) for faster and quieter AF operation, and the pulse control diaphragm (EMD) ensures precise aperture control. manual focus override is supported for precise manual control even in AF mode. The minimum focus distance throughout the zoom range is 20".

The Optical Image Stabilization (IS) system is composed of a pair of gyro sensors to detect vertical and horizontal motion and a microprocessor that compensates for this motion by shifting special lens elements in parallel with the perceived movement. The IS system reduces blur in images shot in dim light and at long focal lengths.
The internal focusing mechanism allows the front of the lens to remain stationary and to easily accommodate specialty filters, such as polarizing filters.
An Ultrasonic Autofocus Motor (USM) provides fast, smooth and quiet autofocus action which is particularly important when shooting video with this lens.

Yes it is. If you have an EF Version of the Ursa Mini, such as BLURSAM4KEF, this lens will be compatible with it.

question

Is this lens compatible with a gh5 and metaones XL?
Asked by: Federico C.
Mine is on a Canon T5. But I did want to say my biggest problem with the lens is lens creep. I sling my camera across my chest so it will ride on the small of my back or top of my fanny pack. The the lens stays extended in that position.

question

how much of an upgrade is this over the 18-55mm lens i recieved with my camera? im either getting this or the travel package by canon. if i get this i will also buy the 50mm prime.
Asked by: Anonymous
If you received an 18-55mm with your camera, then it means your camera is a crop sensor camera. In that kit lens, you range from wide angle to short tele. If you purchase this lens, you will be losing wide angle. 28mm on a crop sensor will give you close to a normal angle of view. But what you lose in wide, you gain in tele. That 135mm on the tele end will give you a lot more magnification of things in the distance. Build quality is much better on this lens and if you ever decide to go with a full frame camera in the future, this lens will work with it as will the 50mm prime. The 18-55mm would be rendered useless on a full frame.

question

I've got an EF-S 55-250 IS STM kit lens. I was thinking about changing it for this EF 70-300 IS USM lens. Is it worth it?
Asked by: Fran Q.
The 70-300 is a larger and older lens, it should give you sharper optics, being that it is made for a full frame camera, but be slower and not as good for video as the 55-250 IS STM.
