Canon EF 28mm f/1.8 USM

PC Magazine

  • Conclusion: The EF 28mm f/1.8 USM is a fast wide-angle optic for use with Canon D-SLRs, but it isn't sharp at its maximum aperture and is prone to color fringing.
  • Pros: Compact. Fast aperture. Minimal distortion. Sharp when stopped down a bit.
  • Cons: Not sharp at maximum aperture. Prone to color fringing. No image stabilization. Hood not included.

  • Excerpt: Handling and features This classic wide angle prime from Canon provides a wide angle field of view, fast, silent focusing and a bright f/1.8 maximum aperture. With this lens costing around £380, could it be the perfect budget solution for hand held low light shooting?

6 June 2009
  • Summary: Canon EF 28mm f/1.8 USM held a lot of promise on paper - a well performing fast wide angle prime, with silent and accurate AF system in a compact and light format that is affordable to a mainstream photographer. Unfortunately, in the real life the lens does not come even close to all these promises.

EF 28 mm f/1.8 USM

6 July 2010
  • Excerpt: Originally posted 2010-04-12 on Optyczne.pl One of the oldest lenses in the Canon’s current line-up is an EF 28 mm f/1.8 USM model, as it was launched on the market in September 1995. Why the company doesn’t see any need to introduce its successor?
  • Cons: weak image quality at the maximum relative aperture,, low resolution at the frame edge of an APS-C and full frame sensor alike,, quite significant chromatic aberration,, huge coma,, unsatisfactory accuracy of the focusing mechanism.

Canon EF 28mm f/1.8 USM - APS-C Review / Re-Test

photozone.de
8 June 2010
  • Conclusion: The Canon EF 28mm f/1.8 USM disappoints on the APS-C format. It is a full format lens yet the border quality leaves something to be desired even when stopped down. The fairly heavy amount of lateral CAs reduces the subjective quality perception even further.

Canon EF 28mm f/1.8 USM - Full Format Review / Test

photozone.de
8 June 2010
  • Conclusion: The Canon EF 28mm f/1.8 USM is not a great lens but from a real world perspective it is not all that bad. At large apertures the center is very sharp - and that's probably the priority spot at such settings anyway. However, the border and corner performance is certainly disappointingly low here.

Canon EF 28mm f/1.8 USM - Review / Test Report

photozone.de
6 October 2008
  • Conclusion: Generally the verdict for the Canon EF 28mm f/1.8 USM cannot be better than for its Sigma counterpart - high center performance but substantially worse borders. This is more so disappointing because this full frame lens was tested on an APS-C DSLR.
