Summary: I hate this lens. I wish I did not purchase it. It is slow and awkward. It is not sharp. I keep my shutter speed above the focal length and still sharping in Photoshop. Do not waste your money on this lens.
Summary: I ordered this product and the lens slid when pointed down. I have had the worst problem with a return of this item and am extremely frustrated that the issue has yet to be resolved and its been almost a month.
Conclusion: Lens came in the kit with my 50D. Don't waste your money or time on it, if you want quality prints. Lens is not sharp all the way through, it is very soft. The lens creeps, it literally keeps sliding when you hold it, pick it up etc. Save your money and purchase a better lens.
Excerpt: I bought this lens assuming that 28-135 mm would give me both wide angle and telephoto capabilities and serve as a general utility lens. The lens has absolutely NO wide-angle capabilities, and it severely limits one's capabilities to to use for nature and panorama shots. Furthermore, the lens does not lock in place, and it continuously "slides" out from the unextended to extended position when one is walking around.
Cons: Lens Creep, No wide-angle capability, Poor in Low Light
Excerpt: I bought this lens about 2 years ago with my 50D. First thing I noticed was the barrel tends to slide out VERY easily if held at any downward angle, very annoying. The worst part is, after very little use, but just out of the warranty period, the auto-focus stopped working!! Google it, these two issues are incredibly common. None of the suggested fixes worked for me and Canon wants $150 just to look at it!
Conclusion: From the moment I got this lens with my canon 7d I received a clean contacts error. I clean them and I can take anywhere from 1 to 15 photos and I get the error again. itried the lens on my rebel camera and the same thing happens. No amount of cleaning fixes this. Wish I had saved the dollars and bought the body only.
Excerpt: the lens fit all my needs as an experienced amateur. Its focal range and size made it the "one lens to take" if I had to choose. However, a machine screw within the lens came loose and scratched the optics. I sent photos of the lens with the screw in the optics to Canon service. It was after the warranty expired. At best I expected some accommodation on a repair as I thought a screw within the optic mechanism was a defect.
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
Excerpt: A really bad lens. Bought another one somewhere else to make sure I didn´t get a dud. This one had the same problem: unsharp, difficult to focus. I also find the colors not good. A sad waste of money.
Summary: Jo mit dem Objektiv war ich nicht zufrieden, an meiner Canon EOS 1100D lieferte das Objektiv unscharfe Bilder und der Autofokus hat nicht wirklich funktioniert, jede Falls nie beim ersten mal. Ich ahbe das Objektiv zurückgeschickt.
