Well, if it's somewhere around 130$ I think it's alright. Canon sell a plastic lens hood for 80$ after all...


Canon 6D | S35mm f1.4 | 135mm f2 The rest: T3i, 20D, 15mm f2.8, 15-85mm, 24mm f2.8, 50mm f1.8, 85mm f1.8, 90mm f2.8 macro, 55-250mm.
So long and thanks for all the fish

This lens was not impressive. It was "okay' and for the price it is, "okay" wasn't good enough. I had tried out the 28mm f/2.8 IS and it was sharp, very sharp. It probably produced more detail than any lens I have used. However, I thought I would prefer the 35mm and f/2 vs 28mm f/2.8 and I had hoped this would be as good, if not better, than the 28mm. So it is going back to Best Buy and I will get the 28mm. Just not sure if I will order it before the prices go back up, or wait until 'next time'....

MG -- so you tried the 35 f2 and you are sending it back for the 28 2.8?

Thank you much for sharing that link. That price is too GOOD to pass up - especially since it is supposed to go up $200 Sunday.

Looking forward to getting this lens. Thank you again.

thanks for your review too! i was on the fence about the 28mm 2.8 and from what i understand it's probably the sharpest of the three new IS primes (and the smallest). what i also like about it is it will work well with my 40d, whereas 35mm would have been longish for that body.

I had the 28mm f/1.8 with my T1i and I loved it, it was perfect and a good little lens. However, when I first went FF, I was a little overwhelmed and sold this lens, thinking it too wide for FF. Since then, when shooting with the 50mm f/1.4, I have sometimes wished it wider and wished I had kept my 28mm. But the new version is way better - it is so sharp, I expected the 35mm to be too. It wasn't, so I boxed it up and sent it back the same day. With this deal, I am glad I did, as the 28mm ended up being a whopping $300 less than the 35mm.

So glad you responded with your link !

maybe so, but this price is only $100 more than the 28mm f/1.8, which was released 18 years ago. The newer technology and IS make it well worth the $100. So Canon's loss is my gain. ;)

the 28mm is interesting. I'm kind of on the fence between focal lengths. 35 seems kind of cramped indoors, 24 is good, but be careful of distortion, and 28 is also good. My biggest issue is that being 2.8, it's overlapping my tamron which I love dearly. Love the idea of a smallish 28mm with excellent optics, even if it's a 2.8 lens.... it just doest scream top priority, but the GAS is very very compelling.

Say no to GAS !!! Oh wait I just picked up a Leica.
