Canon EF 28-105 F/3.5-4.5 II USM

ef_28-105_35
Review Date: Apr 15, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $229.00 | Rating: 8 

 
Pros: Good build, ring USM, FTM, flexible zoom range, affordable
Cons:
f/3.5 only at widest aperture; lens hood not included

The 28-105 is very well built for a lens in this price range. The zoom functions smoothly, it has a distance scale, and it has ring USM and FTM. These last two are usually only found on more expensive lenses.

Pictures are not always razor sharp compared to my primes, but they are very good and much better than any budget lens on the market. Color is great and contrast is good. I shoot in RAW and only apply minor processing on most images.

This is the first lens I bought for my camera. I'm in the process of upgrading some of the lesser quality lenses I started with, but the 28-105 will stay in my bag. This is the one I take most often when I only carry one lens.
