EF 28mm f/2.8 IS USM
For decades, the 28mm lens was THE most popular wide-angle choice for 35mm film shooters, producing a genuine wide look yet being completely practical for most everyday situations. The same is true of this new lens, when used on full-frame digital SLRs. A totally new design, it joins the EF 24mm f/2.8 IS as the world’s first fixed focal length, wide-angle lenses to offer Image Stabilization. For stills or video, IS simply takes a sharp, versatile lens and makes it even more practical. Along with IS, its compact size and light weight are character-defining traits that will appeal to many different types of users.
- 4-stop Image Stabilization correction — super-steady for hand-held HD video recording, and allows safe shutter speeds for still images down to ¼ or even ½ second
- Equivalent to 45mm lens in coverage when used with APS-C sensor digital SLRs (EOS 7D, 60D, etc.) — perfect for users who prefer the classic “standard lens” coverage
- Fast f/2.8 aperture makes it great in low-light situations, but with far less bulk and weight than any f/2.8 zoom lens
- An ideal addition to zoom lenses, for users who need to work quickly and who prize light weight and compactness
