|productCanon EF 28mm f/1.8 USM|
I wrote a review with detailed example photos and some of my experiences with this old Canon goodie on my blog. Feel free to hop over and read it f you're considering this lens!
I'd say it's a hidden gem in Canon's line up. where it's very useable at F2.5 and above. Around F1.8-2.0, I would use this for artistic purposes because even the center is a bit too soft for professional use. Purple fringing is very apparent wide open, but that's the case for most lenses. Overall, it's a good lens that I would NOT purchase new. For it's performance, it's worth it's weight as a used lens if you're paying between $200-270 for. I wouldn't pay the full $450 for this lens. hop over to the site for example photos.

This lens works very well as a 'normal' for the Sony A6000 manual focus via Metabones adapter. Autofocus...hmm...life is too short!

I sold it in a heartbeat haha! I agree that it CAN be a hard lens to re-sell, you just have to market it right and blow em away with some images this lens can produce. They'd be sold!
