Canon 28-135mm Is User Opinions

Fri Nov 12, 2004 6:52 pm

Ok guys,

I am putting together my list of things to buy with my Canon 20D. I have somewhat shyed away from the Canon 17-85mm EF-S IS in favor of the Canon 28-135mm F/ 3.5- 5.6 IS.

I currently have the Canon 18-55mm EF-S, Canon 70-200 F/4 L and the Canon 100-400mm L IS.

The 28-135mm fits in nicely with what I currently have and what I will be getting by January/February 06 ( Canon 10-22mm EF-S and the Canon 500mm F/4 L IS) but, I would like to know what current/past users think of this lens as far as speed and sharpness etc..

Thanks folks,

Chad

There are old pilots and there are bold pilots, but there are no old bold pilots

Thanks Andy,

I see the Canon 28-105mm is the way to go?

What about the Sigma glass around this range? I havent seen many reviews on those lenses.

Chad, as you'll see, Colin Work rates the 24-85. Must admit that I'm thinking of ditching the 28-135, and I might look at the 24-85 now I have the 70-200, as the stretch to 105 or 135 is no longer so important. No idea on Sigma as I haven't tried any of their lenses - someone else will have to comment on those.

I should point out that I have nothing against the 28-105 ... simply that the 24-85 fit better into my lens range (4mm on the wide end being more useful than 20 at the long end).

Actually the 24-85 is a bit of a curiosity - it started life as the flagship lens for Canon's abortive APS film SLR, but was then re-engineered for use on standard SLRs. As such it suffered a little from edge softness in the context of full frame 35mm. However, with the advent of cropped DSLR sensors, it has been given a new lease of life, as its really being used as originally intended.

Of course, if a full frame DSLR is being considered, this is perhaps not the best choice of lens.

Cheers,

Colin
