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, light, quick, with a "retro" flavor, great start to avoid zooming, price.

Cons: CA, poor sharpness at TA

Opinion: I'm a lucky man in buying used material: I've never had a rip-off (for now...). I bought this lens more on a collector's whim than anything else. At the bottom I have a brand new 24-70L f4 which is really an all-rounder. So what? Yes, I really like the golden dash: sometimes there are L series, like the 85 or the 100 macro. This is not, it's not one of them: it's an honest lens that does its dirty job. It has an interesting focal point that allows you to range from the landscape to the Street to the photos of the hill trips to the framed portraits. It has good colors and returns files workable in terms of chromatic and spherical aberrations. Vignette a little but what you want to do, it's a lentinthat that makes you forgive everything: just keep it hooked for any exit and you will take home some nice shots. On FF it's also good for selfies: turn the car and press the button. Other than cell phones... I come back serious (although the comments above were sincere and responsive to my true impressions). The 28 can become LA lens to be mounted when deciding that photography can also be done by walking to look for the frame without taking everything to a zoom. When, in short, you want to take a step back to more consciously face the steps you will take forward. Compared to the price on the used, it is a fantastic lens that must be known.

Pros: Bright, low cost, light, AF lightning-fast and precise, good blur, a blade if you close a bit (except the edges)

Cons: Chromatic aberrations, soft to TA, distortion (correctable with LR)

Opinion: Bright lens that can give great satisfactions from the point of view of Reportagistico and portrait set; Use with EOS 6d. I also tried it on APS-C (50d) But it didn't give me a good feeling at the focus level mainly. You have to know it and it requires to approach the subjects and to move very in phase of shooting and composition. This at the moment is my focal point most used for the double reportage because it offers the possibility to include also what is around the subjects, with a pleasant blur. Distorts and vignette a bit but nothing incorregible in post.

Pros: Approximately normal and standard on APS-C, bright lens, always nice photos and features, fast autofocus, full time manual focus, balanced lens on entry level body, affordable price from an amateur even on the new

Cons: Considered by the online reviews surpassed compared to modern lenses especially on full frame and machines with very busy sensors: adequate in my context of use, evaluate opinions of other photographers with equipment and usage context more similar to Just

Opinion: I have only one camera body APS-C (1000d) and on it use it as normal standard bright lens; Very pleasant and soft colours, good isolation of the subject in the photos thanks to the wide opening, very comfortable in the evening and night even in interiors, competitive price also on the new; Maximum sharpness of my copy at F 3.5 across the APS-C frame; Recommended

Pros: Speed ??and precision focusing, high sharpness in the center even at TA, construction, color rendering, overall yield of the optics.

Cons: Not very clear to TA at the edges (but I do not consider it a cons as aware of this and also purchased for this particular yield), Purple fringing (but no more than other "bright" lenses).

Opinion: I bought it recently used with original lens hood. I really like it, I use it on 5D markII. It has a particular yield, let's say "vintage" to (perhaps) understand ... Speaking of all openness (purchased especially for indoor use for portraits and / or with the subject in the foreground with a gradient background) I'm really satisfied. At the center is very clear, at the edges there is a decay of sharpness but in a pleasant way that highlights the subject that, given the characteristics, must be at the center (and not at 1/3 canon). The colors are really beautiful then. I have 85mm 1.8, then I took the 50th stm and then this 28mm. I sold the 50ino and I took the 50mm 1.4 which is of the same USM series of this 28 and 85. In addition to aesthetic and constructive level I find many similarities in the general rendering of these three optics. I like it a lot. As an amateur photographer, I also feel a bit "fetishist" and seeing them all together gives me great satisfaction (what do you mean?).
