Does anybody have any pictures they can post taken with this lens? I'm buying it possibly tonight and would like to see some sample shots.

thanks

opposite popular opinion, i don't regret selling this lens. for the money i think the sigma 24-70 or the tamron 28-75 is a better lens. more usable focal length and the constant aperture is more important than the IS to me.

my sample pic from the 28-135 IS Off obviously hehe

Consider a 17-85IS instead. With a Rebel XT the 28-135 is a 45 at the wide end and that's not wide enough in town. I bought a 17-85 last month because of this factor and my 28-135 is on ebay collecting bids now! The 17-85 is identical in most respects but can be a tad sharper. Thats not to knock the 28-135 though, I agonised about this change.

hmmm would the lack of wide angle hurt me THAT bad? I was also panning to get the 50mm f/1.4 USM but would gladly replace it with a wider angle lens of the same price range. any recommendations? even if its not a Canon Lens? I would also like it to be sharp if possible in this price range

The Tamron 17-35 f/2.8-4 is a very good lens.

The lack of wide angle hurt me that bad to change! Iwas constantly frustrated and went araound town with the 18-55 kit lens and realised what I was missing. Analysis of my shots showed I was constantly at th wide end , say 85% of the time, so it made sense for me. I don't like carrying gear other than the one camera so I like IS and the 17-85 is a useful range. I also have a 75-300 I got s/h for £80 off e bay and that's sharper than either the 28-135 or the 17-85

I would still like to keep the 28-135 because I've heard its a great lens, and I get the rebate with it... so idk I think I may just stick with this for now I'm not gonna be doin too many pics up close and right now I can't afford any nice wide angle lenses AND this lens so I think the 28-135, and the 50mm f/1.4 will do me justice thanks for the help though
