Sample Shots

Ok, finally here're some sample shots taken with the EOS 350D (converted RAWs via RSP v1.0). 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

The Canon EF 28-70mm f/3.5-4.5 II is one of the little known secrets and more than that it´s also available at very low prices on the used market (< 100 bucks at eBay). The lens is certainly not flawless especially regarding its mechanical qualities. However, the resolution figures are highly impressive and the other optical characteristics are at least on a decent level. On the downside the range of the lens isn´t all that sexy anymore on APS-C DSLRs.
