Summary: Horrible Chromatic Aberration. Purple fringe around everything. Waste of money. Can't return as I'm past the 30 day period. Professional photo studio environment. Poor quality with both the 5d and 7d. Stopped down gets even worse.

Summary: I am an amateur photographer with a self image issue. I am a typical American who has a bad habit of over indulging which means that a regular lens just wont due. With this wide angle bad boy I am able to get my full body into frame and even have one of my relatives with me.
Great image for pics/video - too much lens noise for audio use.

Summary: I bought this primarily for low-light b-roll shots. Specifically indoors. The shots look really nice, both wide and close-up. However, even with a mounted mic, the lens focusing makes way too much noise to be usable for anything other than non-focusing ambient sound.
Summary: The EF 28 2.8 IS USM is the long awaited redesign of the 1987 (!) EF 28 2.8. It's slightly larger and heavier than the previous model but, at 260g is still small and light. Auto focus with contrast AF in Liveview is incredibly accurate on my 6D, 70D and SL1: pin sharp edge to edge at F2.8.
Excerpt: This new 28mm IS USM lens is about as good as it gets, image sharpness wise on Canon SLRs. On a crop sensor (APS C) body it works out to a 44.8mm lens, in 35mm format terms. That's almost exactly what your eye sees and was once considered the "normal" focal length in 35mm photography.
