5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the money, 25 Sep 2008
This review is from: Canon EF - Zoom lens - 28 mm - 135 mm - f/3.5-5.6 IS USM - Canon EF (Camera)
There are cheaper 135mm zoom lenses around but this one is very good and worth every hard earned penny. I bought this to supplement the 18-55mm lens that came with my Canon EOS400D but since fitting this lens to the body it has not yet been taken off. It's so good and perfect for all but the widest of wide angle shots usually needed.
The whole lens camera combination is weighty but not too heavy and the balance in just about right to enable one to hold the camera without fatigue or camera shake. It feels like a true quality combination.
Shots can be taken in suprisingly lowish light levels and the focus is clean, crisp and fast, just perfect for catching the kids candid style running around the garden or in the park without getting in their face, as the standard 18-55mm lens does, for frame filling face shots. Gone too is the close up facial distortion which tends to occur with the standard 18-55mm lens making the face appear fatter and far less flattering than this 135mm zoom does. Your subject will thank you for this. For me a good buy and the right buy a portrait lens at its best
Looks great too with the optional lens hood which also helps to stop some of the knocks and scrapes which can occur when moving around, the lens hood was another 18 well spent as it didn't take long to hear the chilling clank as I touched a wall with the end of the lens while walking, the 18 hood saved my lens from harm.
