Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM

Review Date: Jul 23, 2007 Recommend? no | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 6 

Pros: wide, very light.
soft, build quality

I tried this lense as I consider to buy it. The pictures were very soft at all focuses. Maybe it was a bad example - anyway I did not buy it. The build quality did not convince either, very light and plastic like.

Canon EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM

Review Date: Jul 23, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 8 

Pros: Relative fast, even ok for 5fps/30D. Sharp but a bit soft at 28 mm. Very good colours. Not heavy, not very expensive.
A bit soft at 28 mm. The front a little lose. Focus problems at low light.

I got this as a deal together with the canon 30D. I am happy about the lense and will keep it for my next ff? camera, unless I change to L quality before that.

Zoom range good, but not that wide for 1.6 factor. I cannot tell how it behave in the corners on a FF - but it is sharp in the cornerrs for almost any situation on the 30D.

Have taken 17000+ pictures the last 6 months and the lense have worked perfectly all the time.

Wish build quality was better - but then you get what you pay for. I will go L at some time (have to persuade my better half to use money for it)
