Another eBay find, the Canon EF 28-80mm f/3.5-5.6 USM is an older discontinued Canon lens. I picked this up for cheap in during the summer of 2015. Why did I buy it? I Because it was cheap. Its a fun weird lens. It has a lot of flaws. Its not particularly sharp (although it does get better stepped down). It does weird things to the color, it has problems with light/dark contrasts and its lousy wide-open. However, it has produced some surprisingly nice images. It does so because OF the flaws, not in spite of them. I don’t use it often. But I have printed and framed more images from this flawed lens than some of the newer Canon lenses.
