Canon EF 28mm f/1.8 USM Lens Review

 

The Canon EF 28mm f/1.8 USM Lens is currently Canon's fastest 28mm lens . And the only wider angle lens that is faster (wider aperture) is the Canon EF 24mm f/1.4L II USM Lens .

Fast Prime

 

Fast prime lense, great Fstop, nice focal length for indoors on a crop sensor. good bokeh and depth of field. I'm hoping to upgrade to the 28mm with IS soon

Don\'t Debate!

 

I use this lens for portraiture and everyday photography. If you are looking to step away from kit lenses or looking for a prime lens, this is the one. Clear photos, great speed, and the build is AMAZING. I\'m never going anywhere with out this lens....
