Sample Shots

Ok, finally here're some sample shots taken with the EOS 350D (converted RAWs). Click on a thumbnail to view the original file (opens in a separate window). Please note that the full-size images are supplied in JPEG2000 format. You should be able to display the images in most modern imaging applications such as Photoshop. This is a measurement to limit the bandwidth which is a scarce resource.

If you prefer to watch the full-size samples in your Internet Explorer browser you may try the JPEG2000 ActiveX Control (Windows) plug-in. I've checked out a few plug-ins for Mozilla/Opera but haven't really found a good one. Firefox will open IE if you install the ActiveX Control above.

Verdict

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.
