Canon EF 28mm f/2.8 USM IS - APS-C Format Review / Lab Test

1 March 2009
  • Conclusion: The Canon EF 28mm f/2.8 USM IS is, undoubtedly, a high performance lens with only a few weaknesses. The center performance is breathtaking and the border quality is also very good if you close the aperture by a stop or so. The lens is also capable of keeping its performance in close-focus scenarios. The low amount of lateral CAs contributes to the high sharpness perception as well. The low amount of barrel distortion is also nothing to worry about in most scenes.

Canon EF 28mm f/2.8 - Review / Test Report

photozone.de
28 July 2008
  • Conclusion: The Canon EF 28mm f/2.8 may not be the most attractive lens on the market but it is still interesting nonetheless. It is very affordable in combination with a pretty impressive optical performance (except CAs) and quite decent mechanics. However, it faces pretty stiff competition from the Sigma AF 30mm f/1.4 EX DC HSM which is a little better in the center but worse at the borders. The Canon is much cheaper though.

  • Conclusion: Canon EF 28/2.8 - объектив малоэмоциональный . Предсказать его поведение можно уже исходя из времени разработки и ценовой категории. Огрехи в виньетировании, хроматике и дисторсии ожидаемы, пятилепестковая диафрагма дает явные "гайки" в зонах вне фокуса на прикрытых диафрагмах, но равномерная резкость на прикрытых диафрагмах, неплохая контрастность и цветопередача, невысокая цена и компактность примиряют.

  • Cons: Duża aberracja chromatyczna na brzegach., Ostrość na brzegach mogłaby być lepsza., Głośny autofokus.
