Excerpt: I use this for shooting video and it's a great all around lens to have.
The image stabilizer is useful when I shoot steadicam style with my tripod.
I would recommend this lens.
One con if any would be it doesn't have a lens lock to prevent it from sliding down when carrying.
Excerpt: I purchased this lens for a friend as a gift for his wife. She had seen mine and mentioned that she wanted the same lens. I've had mine for so long, I'm not sure when I bought it, but it is a great all around lens.
Excerpt: This lens was a great buy for the price! I took it out into a snow blizzard with a Canon 7D and the photos are almost magical. Definitely worth a buy for a beginning photographer or a student building their portfolio.
Excerpt: As great as this lens functions as a kit lens, there are much better alternatives for a few bucks extra. I bought a 24-105mm and have never looked back, reason cause this 28-135 was going to just sit around.
Excerpt: AF and IS work well. Compared to an longer ef-s lens, this has much superior resolution. I can resolve more detail with this lens than with the ef-s at extreme zoom. This one is effectively a longer lens. I should have used this all along.
Excerpt: This is a very nice lens for what we use it for. We are armature photographers and were looking for a lens that was very versatile for wide angle to zoom. We do a lot of family photos as well as nature photos. This lens helps us capture then near and far images just perfectly.
