Canon EF 28mm f/2.8 IS USM Wide Angle Lens

A compact, affordable wide-angle lens that’s useful in a variety of situations.

The EF 28mm f/2.8 IS USM Lens from Canon gives you great flexibility for a prime lens and is useful for everything from landscapes to interiors. A 74° wide angle of coverage will let you capture beautiful portraits and candids as well. You can focus down to 9" for a dramatic, unusual perspective. Optical Image Stabilizer technology allows you to shoot at shutter speeds as much as 4 stops slower than usual, giving you a tremendous edge in low-light photography.

A ring-type USM and advanced CPU with optimized AF algorithms deliver fast, quiet autofocus, superb image quality and enhanced performance characteristics that are ideal for a wide range of photographic applications. Aspherical lens elements help improve image quality on the periphery and lens coatings help minimize ghosting and flare. A 7-blade circular aperture diaphragm delivers beautiful, soft backgrounds (bokeh). It's a great lens to go with any EOS DSLR camera, for shooting stills or video.

  • Optical Image Stabilizer provides up to 4 shutter speed stops of correction.
  • Ring USM, high-speed CPU, and optimized AF algorithms for fast autofocus
  • Full-time manual focus for manual adjustment while in AF mode
  • Aspherical lens elements improve peripheral image quality.
  • Circular diaphragm (7 blades) delivers beautiful, soft backgrounds.
