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

ef_28-135_35_1_
Review Date: Mar 3, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Light enough to carry all day, sharp, IS, good zoom range.
Cons:
Focus ring can be awkward from time to time.

I bought this lens after reading the reviews on here and I am not disappointed. Yes the barrel is a bit loose but has no affect on the image quality, which is excellent, and the build quality is still very good and better than the Sigma EX it replaced, and is lighter even with IS.
The only niggle is the focus ring when using manual focus which could be bigger and in an easier position, but I've got used to it now so not really a problem. Having full time Manual focus is a real boon too, as I can leave the switch in AF and focus manually at any time.
I would greatly recommend this lens to any one who wants a general walk around lens with a good zoom range and superb quality optics. I've used it on my 400D (Rebel XTI) and 5D and apart from the crop factor there is no appreciable difference in performance.
