  • Conclusion: The Canon EF 20mm f/2.8 USM lens delivers an ultra-wide field of view on full-frame cameras, and is quite sharp once you stop down to f/4.
  • Pros: Ultra-wide field of view. Sharp when stopped down. Minimal distortion.
  • Cons: Slightly soft at f/2.8. Prone to color fringing.

Canon EF 20mm f/2.8 USM - Review / Lab Test Report

11 May 2008
  • Conclusion: Since the release of the EOS system we have seen several updates to Canon ultra-wide zoom lenses but they didn't really care about their fix-focals in this range ever since their initial release back in the early 90s. The Canon EF 20mm f/2.8 USM feels a little dated by now - less so regarding its mechanical qualities but optically it isn't really something special anymore. Most good quality zooms can match its quality by now.
