With flash you will have no problems. With a group you will want to stop down anyway to get everyone in focus, like to F8 or so. Flash will give you the light you need.

What's the biggest aperture of this one on 40mm and 50mm?

I'm getting some color distortion... Is this normal?

Hello ladies and gents from CA. USA. I'm thinking of selling my 23-135 with genuine hood, but I'm sort of unsure of what price to start at since it has like close to 3/8 inch long thin scratch on rear glass element, right on the outer edge, but doesn't affect image quality. The body and hood are in excellent condition, with lens creep. Front glass is good and has some some dust in there, but doesn't seem to affect image.
What would be a reasonable price to sell it? Please excuse if I'm out of place in asking in here, I'll delete if I am
Here some recent pictures I took with this lens.

I would think you would be better off just using this lens as with a scratch, dust, and lens creep I can't see anyone paying more than 100-150 dollars for it probably, and it will give you more value just using it.

Sounds like a reasonable idea, I was sort of thinking that last night. Get something out of it while I buy one later later down the line, I need the practice :o. It was included with a 50D that had around 30K click, which i bought yesterday on craigslist for $400.

Thanks guitarjeff :)

I love my 28-135. It is as sharp as my 70-200 was, and I have since made it my only zoom along with three primes.

Anybody using this lens on a T3i? Or maybe other similar body? I'm curious of the results on a crop sensor, but more importantly how well does it focus in shady/lower light conditions? Efficient enough to capture a moving object? I'm not expecting it to to be as fast as a fast lens but also want it to work indoors if/when necessary.

Thanks.


Just the basics:
T3i
18-55 Kit
55-250 kit
Tamron 18-270

I use it on a 40D all of the time. I used to use it on the Rebel XT as well. It's a great lens.

Tested my second-hand unit with great results! Sharpness, contrast & color are very good!
Cons are minor factors: Construction (front cilynder a bit loose), IS (sound too perceptible) and CA's (show up too easily).

I think it's a great lens for the money.

Beautiful pics. Yep, I am very happy with mine as my only zoom along with primes. The sharpness and the way it renders are perfect through my 5D2. Compared to my now sold 70-200 (Which was incredible and an awesome lens, just too big for me) the 28-135 has no problems attaining basically the same quality. The contrast and color abilities are mid range and allow a lot of flexibility and you can get the look you want easily with pp tools and corrections. The pics have an almost "Painting" type look to them sometimes with great sharpness and detail.
