EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM




This is a budget friendly lens with a fantastic focal length range of 28-135mm. It comes with Image Stabilization (IS) and ring-type USM (Ultra-sonic Motor) for quiet auto-focusing. For those who prefer a more precise control over their compositions the presence of FTM (Full-time Manual) focusing should sound just that bit sweeter.


Standard zoom lens with an Image Stabilizer and high zoom ratio. With the Image Stabilizer turned on, you can obtain sharp, natural-looking pictures in dim lighting without using flash or a tripod. Very handy for places where flash is prohibited. Uses ring-type USM for swift, silent autofocus and full-time manual focus. Closest focusing distance is 20 in. (50cm).

    Comments about Canon EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM Zoom Lens (Black):

    Though not the image quality desired for PRO use, this lens is very capable for the hobbyist. Close work with average to good lighting has resulted in some clear quality images with my Canon 40D. I was not as pleased with the far range as the focus seems soft. Image stablisation is a great assistance during low light and even during good light while shooting macro (i.e. lady bug, bees, and the such. A definate improvement if you are using the Canon EF 18-55mm f/4.5-5.6 (with out image stablisation).

      Comments about Canon EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM Zoom Lens (Black):

      This lense is on my 40D most of the time. It is very sharp and pretty quiet. Great for street shots or landscapes when your not looking for a wide-angle view. The 28 mm isn't all that wide so, any large group shots may require an 18mm or wider lense.

        Comments about Canon EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM Zoom Lens (Black):

        I like this lense, I got it in a kit with the EOS 50d. SO far I have really enjoyed it. Its good for around the house and family/friends/pets. Im more of a beginner SLR photographer and my key interest is wildlife. I mainly got this lense as a practice lense before I purchased a bigger wildlife lense. I really want an uprade to a 400-500mm and when I get one i probably will use this as a family occasions or concert lense. 135mm is great for those who are not going to be shooting wild animals, but it only gets like 5 x zoom compared to my last point and shoot. It has fast focus and great clear shots! I'd recommend it to anyone who likes portrait photography and around the house! Its wonderfully built and does a great job in about all lighting conditions!

            Having five grandchildren ages between 10 months to 9 years, this lens can stop their action and catch every movement at the same time. I photograph them quite often and all of my pictures come out great with this lens.

            I love using this lens as my A/P Lens. Great use for it in every mode I throw at it with my Canon 450D (XSi) Works very well in lower light settings and the IS is great.
            Only Con I have with this lens is the creeping of the zoom if your pointing downward or upward at greater than 45 degree angles. A Stiffer zoom control or a zoom lock would make this a absolute perfect lens.

              When it came with my 40D I fell in love right away. It has a VERY good range for a kit lens. It doesn't matter if you are a beginner or been shooting for a while, this is a fantastic lens. It has a sturdy feel to it. It also is reasonably priced. It is Image Stabilized also, which is convenient for some of those shots that you whip out a camera to get that spur of the moment picture, and the USM focusing contributes even more to that.
