Canon EF 28-70mm f/2.8L USM

ef_28-70_28s_1_
Review Date: May 3, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Color, Bokeh, Sharp, Silent & Quick AF
Cons:
It's BIG. Hood is bit awkward to screw on. With 1.6 crop you are goning to want a wider lens..

Bought second hand from a store (with warranty.)
Good lens, sits most of the time on my camera (eos 350), but that's also because that's almost the only way to fit all my gear in the camera bag :-)

On crop camera's highly recommended if you want/have a 10-20 range lens if not, buy a lense in the, then more usefull, 17-55 range.

Build like a tank, although there is no weather seal.
USM quick & silent AF. Nice colors, bokeh & sharpness.

But remember: it's HUGE & heavy so when you point this lense (with the BIG hood) at someone he/she is going to notice it!

Pros: Build, zoom range
Cons:
Impossible to get Lenscap of when the hood is on.

Bought it before a vacation to Nepal.
It had an absolute beating there but it survived graciously.

None of the mentioned problems with unsharp/unfocussed images on my Canon EOS 350 (Rebel xt)
