Canon EF 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6L IS USM

PC Magazine
12 October 2010
  • Conclusion: Canon's EF 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6L IS USM lens covers an incredible zoom range and works with full-frame cameras, but its price and just-ok optics make it a tough sell.
  • Pros: 10.7x zoom range. Full-frame compatibility. Reasonably sharp through most of its range. Includes lens hood and tripod collar.
  • Cons: Expensive. Noticeable distortion. Soft edges. Push-pull zoom design. Some color fringing.

  • Excerpt: At PMA 2004 Canon announced a new lens, the EF 28-300/3.5-5.6L IS USM. It's very similar to the current EF35-350/3.5-5.6L in size and shape and is its logical successor.

6 June 2009
  • Summary: Canon EF 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6L IS USM looks pretty interesting on paper - extreme zoom coverage will certainly appeal someone who does not want to own/carry multiple lenses for use in different shooting conditions.

  • Conclusion: The Canon EF 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6 USM L IS is an impressive extreme range zoom. The optical quality is on a very high though not exceptional level. The resolution figures are generally very good without any major flaws. Vignetting, CAs and even distortions are very well under control.

  • Excerpt: Žádný fotograf nemění rád objektivy. Je to jednak nepříjemná a riskantní operace, při které se zanáší senzor prachem, ale také to velmi zdržuje, takže může uniknout záběr. Na trhu jsou proto širokorozsahové zoom objektivy, které ale logicky znamenají řadu kompromisů.
