I'm considering getting a Canon EF 28mm f/1.8 USM lens for low-light photography (which includes cabin / cockpit shots, as well as maybe over the wing shots at night). If anyone has it and would like to comment, I'd love to hear from you.
A bit of background: I have a Rebel XTi and I would like a fast prime. The EF 50mm f/1.4 USM is the obvious choice, but on my 1.6x body it would just be too long. I think the 28mm woud be just right and would give me a more useful focal length overall.
I've read all the reviews I could find and the 28mm f/1.8 might be a bit soft wide open, and maybe soft in the corners (the latter apparently is not be a big issue on a 1.6x body). The softness issue is the only one that's preventing me from getting it. Let me know if this is really as bad as some people make it out to be.
Thanks in advance for any comments you might want to share,
