      I went to a Best Buy store to order this lens & first of all service was awesome! I ordered it on a Monday afternoon at 430 & it arrived 2 days later! Great experience all the way around. The lens is great, I have used a 50mm 1.4 mostly & this is similar to a 35mm on my crop sensor & I love the wider angle I get with it. So far no complaints.

      My husband gave this wide angle lens to me for Christmas. I have only had a chance to take photos of the back yard and the woods surrounding our house. So far I am impressed with the images and how much of the scene I can capture. I am anxious for nicer weather so I can take photos of the local lakes and beaches.

      Overall, this lens is about what I expected. Its a good everyday prime lens for full or cropped sensor cameras. I like the weight and portability of the small prime lens, however this light weight makes for a less "solid" feeling lens. (thats to be expected).

      One of the oldest lenses in the Canon's current line-up is an EF 28 mm f/1.8 USM model, as it was launched on the market in September 1995. Why the company doesn't see any need to introduce its successor? It would be, after all, a lens with veryFull Review
