Pros: Sharpness, IS silent, colors, compactness.

Cons: Microcontrast sometimes slightly excessive.

Opinion: Splendid optics. Using a fixed 28 is not easy. It is a lens without special effects, a wide angle not extreme, but excellent if you want to face situations in which to place the subject in its environment without excessive deformation. A TA also allows a discreet detachment, standing close to the subject that gives three-dimensionality to the photo. Often the images do not need further modifications in the development of the RAW, because already saturation, sharpness and contrast are perfect. The latter is sometimes even excessive, so as to have to decrease it slightly.

Pros: Nitido in all conditions light compact reliable

Cons: Manual focus excursion too short.

Opinion: Sharp and contrasted to any diaphragm and even at close range. A f2.8 edges a little 'softer but still usable, f6.7 clear to the corners. From f8 onwards we begin to notice a decay of the resolvence on 6D. Never as in this case I find myself in the mtf tests of lenstip.rnSembra optimized to be used at full aperture and voted more to reportage than to landscapes.rnDramatic lateral chromatic variation is present only at the edges. It is completely eliminated in development.rnCurvement of field noticeable in the landscapes.rnVery good to the flare.rnBokeh good, shooting at f2.8 at short distances.rnAF reliable and accurate.rnBrown with the excellent zoom 24-70 f4, this fixed is sensibly superior for edge performance and vignetting.rnStabilizer up to 1/8 s.rnrn ------------------------------ -------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------------- --------------------------------------- rnrnObject not very popular because now there are zoom performance at prices reasonable and because of the high price at the exit.rnPer% 26ograve; I prefer it to the Canon 24-70 f4 (if the zoom is not essential). Optically it is significantly higher, has an extra stop, is compact and light, has no barrels that extend and can be exposed to mechanical stress.rn28mm is an intermediate focal between the most common 24 and 35mm, has a fairly wide shooting angle without having the obvious perspective characteristics of a more wide-angle lens. In short, it is versatile enough to do both landscapes and reportage / street.rnrnDifetti; focusing in manual to infinity is a bit difficult. A greater reduction in gear would have been very good for us to get the most out of the landscapes on the whole field. (If you trust the AF in the landscapes do not take advantage of all the quality of optics in my experience) .rn -------------------------- -------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------- rnUpdate on AF to infinity for landscapes: I discovered a banality%26agrave; ..... just make sure to match the reference cleat precisely with the infinity bar of the scale (just like in the image above), close at f8 and you have the whole field clear without problems, you do not even need to use the live view.

Pros: Small, light, stabilized, clear, solid

Cons: price

Opinion: I find the price slightly high, I used this lens with pleasure for some time, then I sold it to finance another purchase, what can I say? objective really valid, af precise, clear lens and a good bokeh, in my opinion the price is slightly high but nothing transcendental, very good lens, I preferred it compared to version 1.8 because of stabilization, lens in my opinion very recommended !

Pros: Sharp at all apertures - of course very light and comfortable - the used price - accurate autofocus - very beautiful colors

Cons: Maybe a little 'flare but at this price ...

Opinion: It states that at the time of writing this is by far, since the days of analogue, my first and only fixed lens. By various test types I've done, I can only be satisfied with the results, which will be fixed are optimized for focal specifications for which they are built, but comparing it with various objectives (zoom) I have at home on some shots taken at the same focal, I would say that if the plays and is even superior to almost triple price lens (say that it was granted?) so much that I'm considering to buy another fixed alternative to a 24-70. The best results I got them in the landscapes and the still life for now only at the test level, the sharpness turned out to be excellent at all apertures, giving me precise and saturated shots with a nice bokeh in the lower ones, I personally have not noticed problems vignetting it another, perhaps the only drawback that must be taken is the flare, a lens hood is a must also alternative to the original rather ish. A will, which is also stabilizedwe want more?

Pros: Small, light, beautiful, strong, beautiful bokeh, crisp, it is.

Cons: Price altino, no hood, vignetting, slight distortion.

Opinion: I bought this 28 per landscape and architecture of FF; 28mm (and not 24) to be able to also use for some environmental portrait and street (to the perspective distortions) limit. solid construction and beautiful to the touch as well as aesthetically. clear glass to the edges. Distortions almost absent but present, a bit of vignetting (correctable things with a click in digital, even if used in analogue will give a vintage feel). rnHo also ran tests of bokeh and aperture 7-blade amazed me: creamy and also closing round. The stabilizer 4 stops doing his job: I took the evening to freehand dark at 1/8 "ISO 400 with f / 2.8. Being compact mounts of small filters 58mm, same diameter as the 100 f / 2 I own also ; I then bought some filters that use both when I landscape. Perhaps the only flaw is the price for us Italians (because in other countries costs 100 € less, in fact I got from Germany), and especially the lack of lens hood : a € 55 theft plus (recommend you buy the compatible from amazon, which is identical and well done). rnrnDaniele
