Generally the verdict for the Canon EF 28mm f/1.8 USM cannot be better than for its Sigma counterpart – high center performance but substantially worse borders. This is more so disappointing because this full frame lens was tested on an APS-C DSLR. The sweet spot effect has a positive effect on vignetting which is nothing to worry about. The distortion figures are pretty low but chromatic aberrations are hefty comparable to ultra-wide zoom lenses. So in total the lens may be good but we expect more from a fix-focal lens even though the design of a large aperture lens with a moderate pricing was certainly far from being simple.

All in all, a fine lens at an affordable price. As with its smaller-aperture brother though, we’d like it better with less chromatic aberration. It does get way soft in the corners at f/1.8, but if you’re shooting in limited lighting, that nearly stop-and-a-half advantage over the f/2.8 model could be well worth the extra $200-plus.

You have to use the Canon 28mm f/1.8 yourself to appreciate how great it works and feels. It’s well made, tight, smooth and precise. Focus is easy and fast, it doesn’t weigh anything, optics are sharp and fast and it just works. It has no weak points in operation, unlike some other more expensive lenses. READ FULL REVIEW
