  • 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. Going from 35mm to 28mm at the wide end is well worth the loss of the 300mm - 350mm range for most users, especially those using small sensor DSLRs like the 10D or 300D where wideangle ability is compromised by the 1.6 crop factor.

  • 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. But, like any other extreme zoom lens, EF 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6L IS USM has its own drawbacks.

  • Excerpt: The Canon EF 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6 L IS USM Lens is the right choice for those times when you need a wide range of focal lengths but only one lens can go with you and both lens and image quality cannot be compromised . The 28-300 L is the best Canon do-everything-with-one-lens lens available.

Canon EF 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6 USM L IS (full format) - Review / Test Report

  • Conclusion: The Canon EF 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6 USM L IS is an impressive piece of engineering. However, its immense zoom range doesn't come without compromises - especially on a high resolution full format DSLR. The resolution figures are actually pretty good in the 28-100mm range but there's an obvious penalty beyond 200mm with rather soft borders at large apertures. This is acceptable in some situations (e.g.

  • 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. The build quality is exceptional though some may not like the push-pull zoom design.

  • 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. Jak se tento problém podařilo profesionálně zvládnout firmě Canon se podíváme v našem testu.

  • Conclusion: In questo articolo abbiamo testato un delle poche eccezioni a questa regola. Stiamo parlando del nuovo super versatile EF 28-300 IS L, ideale successore del fortunatissimo EF 35-350, è un'ottica capace di racchiudere in un unico prodotto versatilità e qualità tanto da meritarsi l'ambito riconoscimento di appartenenza alla "serie L" delle ottiche più performanti e professionali di casa Canon.
