Canon EF 28-105mm f/4-5.6 USM review by mrmr
Review Date: 6/13/2007 Would you recommend the product? Yes | Total Spent: $100.00| Rating: 7 

 
Pros: Cheap, light, decent 28-50mm lens
Cons: Appalling build quality, average 50-105mm performance

(Used on a crop-frame digital..)
I have to disagree. I find that although the build quality is truly appalling, the f4-f5.6 lens is noticeably sharper and cleaner at the 28mm end than the f3.5-f4.5 lens is. It has much better contrast retention than the earlier design in all circumstances, though the borders aren't quite so good.


At the 105mm end, the older design has the edge, and of course the handling is much better on the older lens.


I think I'd rather buy the 24-85 than either of the Canon 28-105s anyway, it's worth the extra cash.

Canon EF 28-105mm f/4-5.6 USM review by gadgetguy
Review Date: 1/5/2007 Would you recommend the product? No | Total Spent: None indicated| Rating: 5 

 
Pros: lightweight, USM
Cons: horrible build and image quality

Dont confuse this lense with teh Canon EF 28-15 3.5-4.5. This one is really not as good in all aspects - build, IQ, AF. I'd recommend the other one, but not this one.
