Summary: I bought this lens some time ago and have taken several photos with it since then. I can assure you that despite this lens is quite inexpensive and made maily of cheap plastic, it produces wonderful photos! Sharp on all four cornes!
Summary: I used this lens w a Canon 10D cropped sensor lens. The combination was killer. I took so many wonderful images. The images were sharp, full of contrast, w beautiful color. Did I mention inexpensive, small and light weight. Maybe I was lucky? Eventually, I gave my 10D w this lens to my son.
Summary: I wanted this lens but who has that kind of money, Look up diana lens adaptor, If you get that and the 20mm fisheye lens you just saved a ton of money. thats what I did and Im never going back. the quality is just fine and the fisheye effect is non existent, you cant tell its a fish.
Summary: Because this lens is not very popular you can pick one up for a great deal. In fact I got mine used for 30 euros recently! The person just wanted to get rid of it. I've used it already for some studio shots and the images are great. I am using it on a T2i.
Summary: Great lens and the price makes it less stressful to take anywhere without worrying about it getting damaged. the pictures are very clear, having 2.8 is great, and it feels well-made. I use this lens more than the other two I purchased with the camera.
Summary: The 28/2.8 is like the Rodney Dangerfield of Canon lenses. He don't get no respect! Honestly, it would be easy to pass this lens up and buy something else. The design is ancient (circa early 1990s), is "only" F2.8, it doesn't have USM, and while 28mm is wide angle, it's not *that* wide angle.
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. Also, 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.
