Pros: Sharpening all over the frame, very fast AF, stabilizer, lightness, is very quiet

Cons: lack of lampshed

Opinion: Excellent light and very versatile lens, it does not present marked distortions as long as you do not make portraits in the foreground, but I do not think it is the use for which this lens was designed. Really good clarity on the whole frame already at f4, great for landscapes, street and travel reportage. It is easier to use than a 24 mm, but less than a 35mm fixed that makes you think of the shot and that takes you back a few years, when it was the most popular wide angle on film (there will be more than one why!). Without a lampshed I haven't had flare problems yet, but I think I'll buy it for the first trip I'll take. The stabilizer is really quiet compared to my 100L macro, but I think it's for the different amount of glass to stabilize. I recommend it to all those who prefer a quality fixed to a mediocre zoom even if equipped with the famous red line.

Pros: Sharpness, IS quiet and efficient, compactness.

Cons: Hard to exploit

Opinion: Gorgeous optics. Using a fixed 28 is not very easy. It is an optics without special effects, a wide angle not extreme, but great if you want to face situations in which to place the subject in his environment without excessive deformations. At TA it also allows a discreet detachment, staying close to the subject that gives three-dimensionality to the photo. Often images do not need further changes in the development of the RAW, because already saturation, sharpness and contrast are perfect.

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?
