Hello everybody,

I am thinking about buying this lens as part of my current collection. Would you please post photos you have taken with the 28mm f/1.8? Do you think this would be a good addition for low light/indoor sports photography?

Thanks in advance!:)

Jenn I see you have the 85 1.8. The 28 is wide how do you imagine using it? What sport?

I bought it for low-light shots, when I'm too close to the subjects for the 50f1.4, which I consider better.
28f1.8 is not as sharp as 50f1.4 and may not focuses so quick, but it's solid and I'm happy to use it.

I think this lens is every bit as good as the 50/1.4 and 85/1.8 in terms of IQ, build, etc. It is fast in low light and quick to focus. I like it very much.

Here's one I shot from the top of the CN Tower in Toronto last August:

I find that I don't use it nearly as often as I thought I would. Even still, when I want it, I'm glad I have it. I found mine used, and am generally happy to have it...

Hi Bill,

I was thinking of using it for group shots of my daughter's cheerleading team. Will the lens be good for that? I will be taking the pictures while they are doing their routine. What do you think?:)

Thank you for the comments!:) It would probably be useful for me because I'll be taking group shots, so this lens should be wide enough.

Thanks, Scott! I have heard the 28mm doesn't focus as quickly as the 50mm or 85mm. Have you experienced the opposite?

Wow, Steve! I love your first photo! The 28mm does seem to be pretty sharp. Did you shoot it wide open? Sorry to ask...I don't have an exif reader.:o

Hmmm....I think it is every bit as fast. It's a quality piece for its price and applications.

Here are some shots taken with the 300D:

http://www.pbase.com/b​osphorousman/inbox (external link)

If you're using a 1.6 sensor camera and focusing at wide apertures, larger than f3.5 - f3.0, then you need to turn the MF to the right past the point of focus. Then press the shutter half way to zero in on your subject. This will give you more accurate focusing with the Digital Rebels. The 20D is supposed to have better focusing with larger aperture settings.

Hope this helps! It's a great little lens.

Thanks for the tip! I really like the pictures in your gallery.:) Gives me a glimpse of what this lens can do. Have you ever used it for indoor sports?

Thanks again!
