Performance

For long time Canon camera owners, the L series lenses have always been the dream lens. The quality and clarity of those lenses are unsurpassed in the industry. However, their prices reflect that quality. <p> The 28-135 IS USM lens is not officially an L series lens but it performs at or near that level. The consistent color reproduction, clear picture over the whole field of view, and the general feel of the lens makes me have to look twice to notice that it is not a L-series lens. <p> The only misgiving I have, and that will just take a bit of time, is that the focus ring is smaller and located not where I am used to. However, this is a very minor thing as it is a full-time manual focus lens without needing to switch out of auto focus mode. <p> The only other thing is that the f-stop range goes relatively closed at the longer focal lengths. This is where the much higher priced L-series lenses can sometimes really win. But at less than 1/2 the price of the similar L-series lens, I find it impossible to find a difference worth that much. <p> <small>Note: You will want to find a good 72mm UV filter - cheap filters are not up to the quality of this lens and it would be a shame to lessen the image quality over a $30 filter savings.</small>

Versatile Lens

on 7/29/2012

This is one of the best lens purchases I have made. This lens is quite versatile -- I almost never switch it out for another. The lens creep is a minor issue, and isn't really as big a deal as others would have you believe.

Product Overview

Standard zoom lens with an Image Stabilizer and high zoom ratio. With the Image Stabilizer turned on, you can obtain sharp, natural-looking pictures in dim lighting without using flash or a tripod. Very handy for places where flash is prohibited. Uses ring-type USM for swift, silent auto focus and full-time manual focus.
