EF 28mm f/2.8 Lens




The most affordable fixed focal length wide-angle lens in the Canon EF line-up continues to give benefits difficult or impossible to find with zooms. The fast f/2.8 aperture makes it easy to use in low light, and provides a bright viewfinder image in the camera. It focuses as close as 10 inches (0.25m) without accessories. And optically, it provides excellent edge-to-edge contrast and sharpness along with superior correction of linear distortion, so straight lines in a subject (such as architecture) remain straight.

A small lens, big on quality.

While it may be small in stature, the EF 28mm f/2.8 IS USM has a lot to offer. Lightweight and compact yet solidly built, this impressive little camera lens delivers superb image quality in a very popular focal length. Comfortable to carry and easy to handle, this wide angle lens holds its own in a wide variety of settings. Whether you’re looking for a landscape lens, a portrait lens or a lens for photojournalism or product photography, this could indeed be the lens for you. And while it may not put up macro figures, its minimum focus distance of 23cm and maximum magnification of .23x will help you create some pretty amazing close-ups. With its f/2.8 aperture, 28mm focal length and 4-stop Image Stabiliser, this lens is remarkably handholdable, allowing you to take clear, crisp images without a tripod, even in low light. Another standout feature of this lens is its ring-type USM autofocus, which is not just quick and quiet, but stunningly accurate too.
