Canon EF 28mm f/2.8

ef28mmf_28_1_
Review Date: Nov 29, 2004 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $187.00 | Rating: 6 

 
Pros: sharp past f5.6, metal mount, small & lightweight, cheap =)
Cons:
noisy! hunts in low light. Very rare availability.

The 52mm filter thread size is great! I can use both on this one and my plastic "50"

Overall i like it! If you like elcheapo normal focal length on 1.6x FOV camera that gives some nice quality? Well I recommend it!

Best combo with 50mm 1.8II


 
Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM

ef17-40_4l_1_
Review Date: Nov 29, 2004 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $705.00 | Rating: 8 

 
Pros: excellent build quality, color rendition, focus speed, very silent motor, weight, sharp at 40mm
Cons:
marginal difference on photo quality from my efs 18-55

My first "L" lens. Superb build quality. I got the sigma 70-200 2.8 hsm, and i must say USM is a lot quite.

Surprisingly on its wide end the sharpness of my canon efs 18-55 was on par with this lens. Oh yeah i agree with other reviewers about the CA, there is but not as bad as the plastic kit lens.

I think im gonna keep it because of its other advantages!

yup yup! annoying lens hood =(
