Technical Details


Product Description

The Canon EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Lens is a compact and lightweight standard zoom lens that offers superior optical performance, plus a built-in Image Stabilizer. The IS system reduces the possibility of blurred photographs caused by camera shake, which allows for hand held photography in comparatively dim light without a flash or tripod. At the wide angle end of the zoom range, the equivalent shutter speed gain is approximately 1.5 stops while at the telephoto end, it is approximately 2 stops. Also, the lens has a USM drive mechanism for faster and quieter AF operation, and the pulse control diaphragm (EMD) ensures precise aperture control. Note! White Box products comes supplied in a plain white box, instead of the manufacturer's packaging. It still includes all the manufacturer's accessories.

A lot of people are comparing this lens to the 24-105L lens, which I guess is because KenRockwell picked this over it in terms of price and practicality, but putting a $200 used lens up against L glass is a pretty unfair comparison. Of course this isn't L glass, nor is it L construction or feel. Check the MTF charts, it's not going to be as sharp or have as much contrast, but let me say that it is a great lens for the kit-lens-owning photographer looking for a bump up.

The focus on this lens is fast and accurate, and image quality is delicious, and you never have to fight with it to fix it on a focus point unlike a few other "all-purpose walkabout" lenses that I've used. Colors are vibrant and it's stellar throughout pretty much all of its range. The spinny-uppy IS is nice to grab a few extra stops when shooting in available light, too. I'm able to pull off shots that wouldn't be possible without a *pod or pushing up the ISO. I'm very thankful for that extra reach on this lens.

Considering what this lens can be picked up for on the used market, it's an absolute steal. Buy it and use it every day. I've used it on a walk downtown, in the studio, and for product shots. It's even got a macro range that does wonderful things. I'm a huge fan of this lens, and can heartily recommend it to anyone looking for a good lens. It's not an L, duh. It's a fantastic all-purpose lens that produces lovely images without any drama. That's something we can all get behind.

This was my default lens on a 40D and still somewhat compelling on a 5D II. On a crop body, it's a portrait telephoto best coupled with an ultrawide, but there's almost no reason to buy it over the 18-135/3.5-5.6 STM. That lens is simply better.

The first copies of this lens appeared in 1998. My unit from 2007 doesn't have the zoom creep or poor telephoto quality that earlier reviewers mention. Build quality is average, without the tight production tolerances of recent L or EF-S lenses. The zoom ring is slightly sticky, and at 50mm and wider, there's significant play in the cam mechanism that holds the front elements. Neither seems to great consequence.

On a crop body, the optics of this 28-135 are above-average on an objective scale and excellent for this focal range and size class. My copy is sharp across the frame wide open at 135mm and similar to my 100/2 at the same aperture. It's decent wide open at 28mm and very sharp by f/5.6. On a full-frame body, you'll want to have it stopped down to f/8 to keep the borders in the realm of decency. SLR Gear and The Digital Picture show good performance on full-frame, though in my experience, border quality on the 24-105/4L is significantly better at the same aperture. Because of the slow maximum aperture, you may need a flash indoors.

Focus is fast, accurate, and consistent past 50mm, even in near-darkness. My copy occasionally misfocuses by small amounts at 28mm, seemingly the result of loose elements in the IS system. Balance is ideal for a 40D/50D and front-heavy on a Rebel body.

Video shooters will fare better with the 24-105/4L IS. That one has a smoother zoom ring, constant aperture, and partially parfocal design (i.e., it holds focus when you zoom). The 28-135 is not parfocal.

I ordered this lens just before photographing a wedding, and I was nervous about using it for the first time for such a big occasion. However, it did NOT disappoint. Both the indoor and outdoor photos (without flash) were fantastic and I was very happy with the performance of this lens. Most of my previous lenses are fixed focus so it was nice to have the range of a zoom lens again (my previous zoom lens was the crappy kit lens that came with the camera). I definitely recommend this lens to anyone - maybe not for a novice but for an amateur or professional, for sure.

My only complaint is that the seller requested a signature in person upon delivery and that was inconvenient for me. I'm sure it's not that way for everyone.

would've given this lens a 5 star if not for the loose zoom ring that was often described by other reviews. otherwise, it has great zoom range, fantastic macro capability and incredible sharpness once you get to learn to use hyperfocal distance. i use a canon rebel t3i with the standard 18-55mm IS kit lens, and for those like me who are just beginning to explore the world of photography but feel like their skills have outgrown their 18-55mm kit lens, this is the perfect next step. i have made this lens my walk-around lens ever since and have only purchased a canon ef 20-35mm wide-angle as my other lens for landscape photography. i don't own many lenses enough to make a critique or comparison in terms of build quality and weight or handling, i'll leave that to the experts. for an amateur like me, who's also on a limited budget, image quality is all i'm concerned about and i find it performs excellently in terms of my current skill level and current needs as a photographer. focusing is fast enough for me to get sharp images while shooting from a moving vehicle. the IS is a plus when shooting handheld and i find my bokeh shots are far better looking. i have yet to use it on video mode but overall, i would definitely recommend this lens for people who are looking to upgrade from the kit lens.
