With the large maximum aperture, excellent background blur is possible even with a fast shutter speed. The aspherical lens element makes the lens compact and corrects spherical aberrations. The image is sharp even at the edges. Lead-free glass is used.

Canon EF wide-angle lens - 28 mm is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still a solid choice on crop body I have owned this lens for almost three years and have used it on a 40d, 60d and a 7d. I love the speed and accuracy of the USM focus system and appreciate the solid build quality and feel of this lens in hand. Of late, I have used this lens quite a lot on my older 40d body where having such a wide aperture lets me compensate for a relatively low maximum ISO speed. Under certain conditions it can sometimes produce some CA against a bright sky, but overall, I am very happy with the output from this lens and would buy it again without hesitation. Makes a great standard lens on a crop body.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality versatile lens Canon EF 28mm f/2.8 IS USM - For the past 20 years I have been using the Canon EF 28-105 as my primary moderate wide angle lens. While this zoom is a great lens I was in need of something a little faster. I spent a great deal of time considering all my options, reading reviews and assessing what I was going to use the lens for and the quality of the optics I wanted. My selection of an upgrade to my zoom was the Canon EF 28mm f2.8 IS USM. This lens has been absolutely phenomenal! This wide angle lens is fast, optically sharp and light weight. The Image Stabilization has increased its versatility and has made it great for evening and indoor photography without flash. To commemorate the 150th anniversary of the American Civil War I took a tour of several battlefields and museums in Virginia, Maryland and Pennsylvania. I matched the EF 28mm f2.8m IS with my Canon EF 70-300mm IS DO zoom lens for a fast versatile and light weight kit. The EF 28mm f2.8 IS was great for landscapes, monuments and late evening shots on the battlefields. The Image stabilization came in handy shooting inside buildings, historic displays and late night pictures in the Gettysburg National Park. While it might lack an L-series designation the Canon EF 28mm f/2.8 IS USM provides a quality build, fast and quiet Auto-focusing, image stabilization, excellent optics, image sharpness and an f2.8 lens speed w/ IS. This lens has been great for travel, reenactments, interior shooting, architectural and general photography. After more than a year of use I know I made the right decision! I would recommend this lens to anyone looking for a fast, versatile and high quality wide angle lens.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely Pleased 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet, fast autofocus. Very useful field of view - I use this as my walk around lens on a full-frame camera when I go hiking. Wide enough for light landscape / architectural use (though, if this is a primary need of yours, you probably want something wider). Not so much distortion that shots of people are unusable. For me, it's in the sweet spot. It's plenty fast and I'm impressed with the sharpness.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost great I've used this lens for some video shoots and have gotten some amazing results. On a full frame, it's great for wedding receptions, concerts, etc. Sunstars are nice and it handles light really well... for the most part. In some photos, I've gotten some really nasty chromatic aberration. However, I still love it. Everyone needs a wide angle and this is a good one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As sharp as it gets This new 28mm IS USM lens is about as good as it gets, image sharpness wise on Canon SLRs. On a crop sensor (APS C) body it works out to a 44.8mm lens, in 35mm format terms. That's almost exactly what your eye sees and was once considered the "normal" focal length in 35mm photography. If you read any of the many reviews online, it out performs even the 1.8 (non IS) version, which is much older technology.CA is really low here, almost non-existent. Distortion is low, especially for this focal length. If you go with this len's 24mm brother, you will gain more CA, more corner softness and more distortion. You just can't beat this lens. Yes it's not as versatile as a zoom (I also have the 15-85 IS USM Canon lens) but man, is this 28mm tack sharp.If you really care about image quality, you can't beat a prime lens, and this 28mm IS USM is the lens to beat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE THIS LENS! 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! I prefer this lens for walk around and events - basically anytime I am not shooting portraits. It feels light and not bulky, makes my camera much more enjoyable to carry around. On top of that, it looks great and feels very well built. The only reason I didn't 5 stars for: Features - is it is simple - which is a good thing. What more does it need? Performance - I have read that certain other fixed L lenses have very slightly more contrast at apertures wider than 2.8, which is hard for me to believe after using this one. If I hadn't read that, I would have given this lens 5 stars. Quality - 4 stars only because it is not metal, but it feels solid like metal, and thank goodness it isn't metal because otherwise it would be heavier. Since you are reading this, you obviously think you might need a fixed 28 mm. My suggestion is stop reading and just buy this lens - you won't be sorry - unless you feel like you want to spend more on an L lens ...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fast Primes Are Your Friend I bought this lens because I wanted a fast prime. That's precisely what I got. As the other reviews have said, this lens works out to be very close to an actual nifty fifty focal length on a crop sensor like the T3i. In hindsight, I probably should have gone with a 35mm or a 50mm, but that has nothing to do with the quality of this lens, just my preference.When I pulled this lens out of the box, I was thrown off by the weight. Coming from only having kit lenses before, the weight for the size of the 28mm was surprising to me. It's still very compact and wieldy, which is very nice for just bringing a camera and a lens with you on a trip. The working with a f/1.8 lens is great. Because of the fast aperture and short focal length, IS really isn't necessary. As I mentioned earlier, this lens works out to be roughly a 50mm, which I like because I learned on a film camera with a fast 50mm lens. However, you will still end up with the wide angle distortion.On a full frame camera, the field of view is quite stunning. Great for medium to small rooms or getting a close foreground and distant background.
