A fantastic lens for low light portrait work or boudoir photography - HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT!
3 April 2015
Summary: Being a camera junkie, I picked up some used EF lenses at a local estate sale recently and this little jewel was among them. I grabbed this one thinking it might be good for doing low light portrait work and boudoir photography, and after one weekend of experimenting with it, this little thing is...
Summary: This is my sharpest lens period. When range is not an issue, this is the one I use. I use this on a D70 and T3i both of which are crop sensors. This gives an effective focal length of 44mm which puts it between 35mm and 50mm. For me this is a sweet spot.
This is an essential lens for Canon 5D cameras, as well as for Rebels.

Summary: This lens is a normal lens for Canon Rebel cameras. For the larger Canon 5D cameras, this lens is 50% more wide than a normal lens. With a fixed focal length, it is sharper and brighter than the corresponding setting on the kit zoom lens.
Summary: It's a great lens in the item cost x benefit. Consider the Canon FD lenses of high standard. And she with 28mm focal length equivalent to 42mm on a DSLR with an adapter. It's good overall quality, sharpness and contrast even at 2.8, but are excellent with f 4.0 to 8.
Summary: I purchased this lens due to the multiplication factor of Digital Cameras. This lens works as a normal size focal length and the wide open f-stop gives it excellent used in low light situations. I'd recommend to family and friends.
Summary: My son has recently begun a career as a professional photographer and as a good luck gift I ordered him this lens. He does a lot of weddings and realized he had a need for a 28mm f/2.8 lens for some of his group shots and interior distance shots of the services.
Summary: I am currently going back to collect older FD mount lenses to use with my AE-1 Program. I am also using these to mount to my Olympus OM-D E-M5 camera, which make it an amazing photo machine. JPEGs render great with this camera and FD lenses attached.
