Hate It

Tony, Amazon
31 May 2014
  • 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.

Horrible lens

Tanya, Canon
19 November 2012
  • 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.
  • Cons: Semi-sharp images, Poor build quality, soft

Review of EF 28-135mm Canon lens

Carl, B&H Photo
18 July 2012
  • 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.
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: Lens Creep, No wide-angle capability, Poor in Low Light

Junk... don't waste your money.

John photobug, Adorama
20 May 2012
  • 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!
  • Cons: Lens Creep

clean contacts error

Tphotographer, Canon
7 July 2011
  • 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.
  • Cons: unusable lens

good performance bad quality

xrmd, B&H Photo
2 August 2010
  • 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
  • Cons: Lens Creep, Poor customer service, Weak Casing

Photography Review
31 July 2010
  • Summary: This lens is one of the worst lenses i have ever tried, in my entire 35 years of photography. End of story. Definitely NOT worth even the $100 i paid for it.
  • Pros: Good at sucking the money out of your wallet for a piece of crap.
  • Cons: Just about everything.

Worst lens ever owned
