VERY fast and silent focus. I can't praise the USM enough.
Great focal range and color representation.
Constant manual focus is possible if you want to override the motor. Sexy smooth focus ring.
Price. About 1/3 the cost of most other lenses in its zoom range.
The macro is a nice inclusion.
The metal mount feels quality.
Image Stabilization is useful if you're doing video, or if your hands are shaky. I turned mine off because I find the tiny whir a little annoying.
It's VERY heavy. Kind of a pain, actually. The body is fine, but it's a little plasticy.
Lens creep. Ugh. I knew this was an issue, but I didn't know how little motion it would take to make it telescope back. The zoom ring itself is...okay.
The aperture is good, but not great. You won't get a ton of depth on portraits, but it's so constantly sharp I don't care much.
Overall, I'm very happy with this lens. It gives range, sharpness, and quick focus. Yes, there are some drawbacks since it's older, but don't let anyone tell you that you can't get fantastic pictures just because your glass isn't $2,000. This is a great buy if you're on a budget.
Only complaint: It has more lens creep then any other lens I have owned. Now that I know it happens, my ability to shoot is not impacted negatively but it worries me about long term reliability. Time will tell. Overall very impressive lens that doesn't carry the $800+ price tag.
Edit:. One other issue I encountered was the lens cap is pain in the ass to put on when a hood is being used. Might be my fat fingers but I seriously struggle putting it back on.
The main build quality problem is the way the zoom mechanism operates. When you turn the zoom ring on a well-built zoom lens, it moves fairly easily without sticking, but it exhibits some drag throughout the range, and absolutely does not move on its own. With this lens, by contrast, if you tilt the lens vertically, it slams its way to nearly the maximum zoom setting--not quite all the way, because the last part of the zoom range is much tighter than the first part, but most of the way. So the zoom action has way too little drag in most of its range, and vastly inconsistent drag. I saw this problem on both copies of the lens, and the problem was even worse with a filter attached.
To make this more alarming, this severe lens creep problem isn't a consistent problem with these lenses. I've read multiple folks on the Internet who say that they returned these lenses to Canon for repairs (for unrelated problems) and got back tight lenses that worked as they should. This suggests that Canon has wildly inconsistent quality control on these lenses, and that they just don't care enough to fix the problem. That's deeply disturbing.
The problem with lens creep is not just that the lens can change focal length on you without you intending to do so; it also means that the lens takes a lot of abuse during normal use. When you take it off the camera and put it in a bag, for example, it slams its way to the telephoto end of its range every time. When you tilt your camera down, it moves. Every time it moves in an uncontrolled way, it is likely putting stress on various parts inside the lens, and that is almost guaranteed to reduce the life expectancy of the lens compared with a lens that moves less frequently.
I've used Canon lenses for many years, including a wide range of EF and EF-s lenses. I've never seen anything remotely approaching this level of lens slop in any of them. It is simply unacceptably poor build quality. From what I've seen, I would strongly urge anyone considering these lenses to go with the 24-105 instead. It is a much, much better lens. I'm not talking about a small difference here. The 28-135 just plain feels like a toy by comparison.
I terribly miss the extra reach that I used to get with my 17-85 on a crop body, but it's not worth dealing with a lens that is this sloppy. I guess I'll just have to wait for the rumored 28-135 II, and hope that Canon gets their build quality right the second time around.
*****Also its important to note......IT DEPENDS ON THE PHOTOGRAPHER AS WELL!!!!! expensive equipment is nice, but if you dont care about the image, it will show....good luck!!!!
