Good points:
I needed a fast lens for indoor photography and the 50mm f/1.8 was difficult to use in small rooms, so the 28mm f/2.8 was an ideal compromise.

None

Richard, Kildare, Ireland Keen amateur photographer

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Inexpensive and produces the sharp results expected from a prime lens.
I am using it on a Canon 400D which is not a full frame camera and therefore gives a focal equivalent of 46mm
Bad points:
Not quite as sharp as the Canon 50mm prime lens.
Plastic body, but not a problem if treated with some care.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Good stabilizer + angular aim that moves little: photos without tripod to 1/4s are possible.
In Aps-c (60D) the definition is practically perfect to 2.8 up to the edges, and the distortion it is necessary to strengthen to see her.
The contrast is very good. The focusing can be retouched manually without disconnecting the auto focus, and has scale in meters.

Without tripod and with few light it is his strong point

John, Fordingbridge

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Light, good for backpacking which is the reason for purchase. Sharp with almost no pin barrel distortion. With the usual digital SLR 1.6 x magnification the focal length becomes 44.8, usefully near to a standard lens.
Bad points:
Slightly noisy focusing due to no USM motor.
