Canon EF 28mm f/2.8

Review Date: Mar 13, 2009 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

Pros: light, sharp, contrasty and cheap secondhand. great from 2.8, sharp3.5-16. great lens for the money
no lens hood

this has been a real little gem, mostly landscape work stopped down f11-16 most useable even for big prints. very little CA or other probs, so probably got me a good copy.
dont knock it untill you tried one for the price.
