Canon EF 28mm f/2.8

ef28mmf_28_1_
Review Date: Jul 26, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $120.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Inexpensive, 50mm equiv on 1.6 crop camera, sharp center, build seems solid
Cons:
loud AF, soft borders at 2.8

The AF though loud is accurate, the manual focus ring seems a little gritty. The center is always very sharp, especially so from f4-8. The borders seem soft at 2.8 but pretty decent everywhere else. I haven't noticed a lot of CA or flare in my shots.

I know this lens isn't as sharp as the 50mm 1.8, but not many lenses offer that price/performance ratio. This will probably be my normal lens untill i can afford a good wide angle zoom.
