What can I say about this lens? Nothing. I didn't like it one bit. I found a used Canon EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM on eBay in 2012. Given the range it covered, I was hoping it would serve as a travel lens. However, the lens I purchased was filled with dust (I later read that this thing was a Hoover when you zoomed). The lens creeped open, the images were soft, the the colors were meh, and the lens struggled with contrast. I rarely used it and soon passed this off to the kids... who I think may have mercifully destroyed it.
