Pros: Small and compact. Good contrast and clarity in the middle at close distances and narrow apertures (F4+). Not too much CA or distortions. Decent build quality and nice crew-on hood design. No AF problems. Price used.

Cons: Feels dated optically, corners are very soft up to around F5.6. And it's never sharp enough for landscaping. Canon didn't update this lens for more than two decades, but they keep selling it at a rather high price (for what it is) with the hood sold separately. Some people like this old lens "character" very much, some people don't. For me it can be pleasing at times and, honestly, that's why I bought it. Wide open it produces weird/interesting looking bokeh as well as some tricky color aberrations and it flares like crazy too. Many would consider it to be unusable in F1.8-2.8 aperture range, which is only fair.

Opinion: Got mine used for $250 (lens hood included), which I think was a very good deal. I knew exactly what I'm getting into :) and I have no regrets. I love using it for close-ups, portraits and parties on my 6D. It is great for forest hiking or street photography as well. The 28mm field of view turned out be a very good compromise between the overly distorted 24mm and the not so wide 35mm. I've learned that the focus distance has major impact on the image quality of this lens. Basically it makes my camera "short-sighted". Anything that's just a few meters away is nice and clear, but not too much :). Anything farther away turns into various degrees of blurriness, no matter what aperture I'm using. However, I think that most people are much less picky about image quality than me. But then most people are using APS-C cameras and I would strongly recommend getting the 18-35F1.8 Sigma lens instead.

Pros: Compact, lightweight, bright

Cons: Soft to TA, but maybe it's a plus

Opinion: In about 50 years of amateur photography I had never owned a 28mm, I always preferred wide-angle more pushed, and in fact at the first opportunity I had I bought the fantastic EF 11-24. Attracted by the modest purchase price of the used, I took it and mounted it in the car. I was surprised by the versatility it offers especially in street photography and in the portrait set where the angle of view is the right to stay in the scene without the exasperation of the widest angle. The brightness helps in low light conditions and to detach the subject from the background when you want it to emerge from the context without decontextualizing it. In conclusion, considering the price at which it is located, the general quality it offers, the weight and the reduced size, it is worth putting it in the kit. Recommended has those who do not want to faint and are not looking for a "blade".

Pros: Bright, small size, vintage yield.

Cons: A bit soft at full opening?

Opinion: I love this lens for its vintage rendering has given me so many shots and emotions. A bit soft at the edges at full opening (I like it) has an excellent sharpness in the center but this is one of its peculiarities! Lens for reportage and street personally I used it with satisfaction even in weddings. On FF with its 28mm has a yield that I fell in love with! On several occasions I mounted it on APSC (=45mm) but it exalts me in a lesser way. I underline what has already been written previously by other users; "... which allows him to make beautiful set portraits and remarkable blur effects." For me it was a pleasant surprise, fantastic to use is excellent lens, I can only recommend it 100%.

Pros: Quite compact, bright, solid construction but at the same time lightweight

Cons: Not very incisive at full aperture, with high ISO

Opinion: I bought this lens attracted, first of all, by the need to put a more open optics than those I already own and, secondly, by the price \\ brightness ratio really competitive compared to the L series. What can I say, it does not have the incisiveness, resistance to various light defects and solidity of many more noble optics but I am sincere in saying that it has character to sell. I believe that 28mm on FF are the right compromise between opening and distortions and at the same time knows how to return truly remarkable colors and "paste". For the considerations made by other users related to the increase in sharpness by closing the aperture, all true, but what can I say, which optics does not become more incisive by closing a little? And then, remember that at f1.8 with a close subject you risk having a shallow depth of field that, sometimes, by the most inexperienced, is mistaken for little sharpness. Would I buy this lens again? Yes, definitely, as I would buy the 85 f1.8 (always series with gold ring) knowing well that they will never be like the professional series but at the same time they are more than enough for what I have to do.

Pros: Lightweight, compact, af, diaphragm, quality as soon as you close the diaphragm a little.

Cons: A little soft at full opening especially at the edges.

Opinion: Personally I consider it an excellent lens, light, compact and with fast and precise focusing. In my opinion the best fixed lens "all-rounder" is the classic 35mm or at most a 40mm, alternatively, there can be the 28mm or even better the torque 28/50 to have more opportunities in general. The 28 to keep up mainly, the 50 to use when you need to have a more interpretative image or when you need to isolate the subject a little more. The proportions it returns are similar to those of the 35, for subjects within a certain distance the difference is one or two steps at most, for distant subjects obviously the frame is wider, so it is a few more steps, if possible, otherwise it is cropped in development. This 28 in size and weight is similar to the 50 1.4, calculate that you can mount one in the car and the other keep it in your pocket quietly, they are light, compact, bright, have an excellent af taking into account that they are not L series and slightly closing the aperture sharpness increases considerably. I often use them when the light starts to run low and I want to turn light during the services, if I do not need to have the zoom L 2.8 mounted, I use the 28 on one body and the 50 on the other, or the 28 on a body and the 50 in my pocket ... you do practically everything (where you do not need the canvas of course). In conclusion, excellent lens, I can only recommend it 100%.
