The Canon EF 28mm f/2.8 IS USM is a wide-angle prime lens with flexibility for a number of applications like portraiture, landscape and interiors. An update to the legacy EF 28mm f/2.8, this lens incorporates Ultrasonic Motor (USM) and Optical Image Stabilizer (OIS) that facilitates shooting in various situations. The Optical Image Stabilizer offers up to 4 stops of shake correction, while a ring-type USM and advanced CPU with optimized AF algorithms enable fast and quiet auto focusing. This lens is constructed of 9 elements in 7 groups, including an aspherical lens element that helps improve image quality on the periphery. The premium lens coating helps minimize ghosting and flare for better result every time. Plus, this lens features full-time manual focus override for precise tweaking even in the AF mode, and a 7-blade circular aperture diaphragm for beautiful background blur.

  • newegg Superb Optical Performance This lens is made of 9 elements in 7 groups, including an aspherical element that reduces spherical aberrations and distortion for sharp, crisp images across the frame.
  • newegg Image Stabilizer Canon Optical Image Stabilizer technology makes handheld photography more practical at slow shutter speeds, accommodating more low-light shooting situations than ever before. Canon Optical Image Stabilizer technology uses miniature sensors and a high-speed microcomputer built into the lens. The sensors analyze vibrations and apply correction via a special stabilizing lens group that shifts the image parallel to the focal plane. Motion blur is canceled, resulting in a sharper image.
  • newegg Ultrasonic Motor The Ultrasonic Motor delivers fast and quiet autofocus performance, which is particularly important to video recording using this lens.
  • newegg Full-Time Manual The full-time manual focusing enables the photographer to manually tweak focus without switching out of AF mode.
  • newegg Inner Focusing An inner focusing lens has the focusing lens group(s) in front of the diaphragm, which allow for compact optical systems that produce faster AF. And because the front of the lens does not rotate to focus, filter orientation remains stationary for unaffected effect.
  • newegg Circular Aperture A circular aperture formed by seven diaphragm blades produce fantastic out-of-focus background effects.
