    Canon 2505A007AA reviews

    Wide Angle EF 28mm f/2.8 Autofocus Lens is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 69.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from An affordable wide angle lens The 28mm wide angle lens is an affordable lens that is great value for money. It is extremely sharp even on the other edges. It is quite useful for architectural shots, as it doesn't bend the lines that much. Another benefit to this lens is that it has a metal mount compared to plastic mounts on most of the other affordable canon lenses. Its small and light, and hence one that you can carry all the time. Great for landscape shots and architecture. The focus ring is quite awkward, and isn't the best designed of the lot. However the AF is quite good, and is usually enough for the job, and of course the ring can be used to manually focus.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from wheres the love for this lens! i had the 50mm 1.8 for a while and liked it alot.. but sometimes it was alittle too long for me.. i wanted a nice walk around prime lens that was small and easy to carry around with.. between this and the 35f2.. i chose this b/c it was smaller and cheaper.. and i was very pleased with the results... it really just feels like having a 50mm on ur camera but at 28mm. and it honestly believe produces just as good pictures as the 50mm. very happy with this lens and for the money it is a great buy fyi. steel mount not plastic like 50mm. alittle noisy AF but really .. as a walk around its not noticeable or worried about.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from This lens was a let down I am a portrait photographer. I bought this lens to use in my studio and outdoors. I was disappointed with the lens. During a large family, outdoor shoot, the center of the group was somewhat sharp, but the farther out to the edges the quality gets soft and out of focus. I used it in studio and compared it with my 50mm. When photographing one subject, the image was much softer than those taken with my 50mm. This was at f/8 , iso 100 ss 1/125 with studio lights. Lens is a little tight when putting on camera and makes a louder noise when focusing. Those things are not a big deal to me, but I can't afford soft photos for clients.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Walk-Around + Portrait Lens This is a fantastic lens for shooting 3/4, waist up portraits. As well as for taking random captures while walking around the city.I really don't have any complaints. Something to note though, is the lens mechanics seem a little tight, especially when fitting the lens to my 20D body, but it works like a dream once its on.I am a pixel perfectionist and this lens does my shots great justice in being crisp and clear when viewed on my computer's monitor and printed.Simply an outstanding lens for the budget. ... I'm looking forward to acquiring my next 100mm from here soon. =)

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for the money!! I use this lens mostly for random shots of the kids inside the house. My 50mm 1.8II is a brighter lens but it's just too long (with a crop sensor) for indoor shots sometimes. It also seems to focus a bit faster than my 50mm indoors. The manual focus ring is disengaged when in auto-focus mode so there's no accidental grinding of the focus motor. The front element of the lens is not recessed very much so a lens hood is definitely recommended! Money is a factor for me so at less than 1/2 the price of the Canon 28mm 1.8 I took a chance on this lens. I have no regrets!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lens, amazing value Along with the well-known cheap 50mm f1.8 prime, this is another great, inexpensive lens from Canon. I used this with a Rebel XT, and have no complaints at all -- it's hard to beat the price/performance of this one, and it's quite small, too! It makes for very nice candids, as you aren't sticking a huge barrel in your friends' faces.My only very minor gripe is that it is a bit noisy to focus, but it's certainly more than tolerable. The other thing is that I don't like how skinny the focus ring is, but I'm just picking nits since I use autofocus most of the time.I am only replacing this lens because I just bought a f2.8 zoom that covers 18-50mm, making this lens less useful to me (although it is still much more compact).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing lens Before buying this lens, I spent some time thinking about what I was missing from my collection of lenses: - 50 mm/f1.8 - kit 18-55mm - 55-250mm My biggest frustration was that I didn't have a lens that could take in more of the shot, but was still prime. I liked walking around with the 50mm lens, b/c it's so small, but i often had to back up to get the shots I wanted. I did some research, and decided that this would be a good lens to try out. I love it! I basically haven't taken it off my camera since I got it. It takes gorgeous photos. The auto-focus noise is a bit annoying when it's quiet, and sometimes the focus lock doesn't work properly (ie: it tried to refocus when i recompose after half-pressing the shutter to lock the focus), but given it's price and the quality of photos, it's way more than worth it. Buy this lens, you won't regret it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great upgrade to prime lens. An excellent lens for the price. Crisp fast focusing and build. The f/2.8 give fantastic, smooth, depth of field. And when focusing in macro mode, the lens does not have any trouble finding the object you are focusing. Only thing I could see as a problem would be the noise while focusing. It is a little on the noisy side when compare to the standard 18-55mm lens, but does not change the quality of the lens. But if you are taking picture where you can't be loud, this may not be the best choice of lens.
