JT's reviews

  • Canon EF 28mm f/1.8 USM

    10 out of 10 points and recommended
    Perfect for indoors low-light portraits
    Forget it in architecture shots

    This lens really shines when comes to portraits of children indoors in poor lightning. Its tack sharp on short distance. Not so sharp if you want to take a picture of a group of people. I use it set to 2,0 when my three grandchildren (boys) visit every sunday. I tried my 17-55 2,8 and my 50 1,4. Both great lenses, but the images canĀ“t match those taken by the 28 1,8. If I use my flashgun 430 ex ii the images are almost to sharp. The bokeh is wonderful by the way.
