Updated with photo

Canon EF 28 f/2.8 IS USM I don’t have a photo, but [DC] did post a link to the appearance of a Canon 28 f/2.8 IS USM. I’ll scour around for a photo.

I have just arrived in Ireland, so I am a bit tired. More to come!

too bad this isn't a replacement for the 28mm f/1.8 ... what's with the 2.8 max aperture on a prime like this?  how does that differentiate from the million other lenses out there that go to 2.8 already?

this one is probably the most disappointing of the images.

So, what will that be in terms of cost? I bought an 28/2.8 cheapo last year. So how close will the price tag get to the current 1.8?

As Whatta noted in another thread, we don't see anything in these images that makes me believe it is in fact a 2.8. At least I am hoping that it isn't a 2.8 as I already have a decent 2.8 lens and want some primes for when I need more control and light. unless they are just doing 2.8 to keep the costs down I don't have much use for a 2.8 prime, even the thrifty fifty is 1.8. so until we see a press release I'm keeping my hopes up.

Very interesting features.  I'm not sure if it would be useful for me but it's nice to see something different from Canon.

This doesnt make sense for me! 24 and 28 at 2.8??? Why???

Maybe they renew all primes with is?

If you consider that Sony, their competition, has an IS sensor and thus all of the lenses that you mount on a Sony camera thus benefit from that then yes, there is motivation for Canon to re-release many of their primes with IS.

My guess is that this is their way of making up for the lack of APS-C primes, and to replace the old 24 and 28 without endangering 24L and 28 1.8 sales, with IS there to help compensate for the lack of speed. The 50 1.8 mk1, 15 fisheye, 24/2.8, 28/2.8, 35/2, and the 135 SF seem to have very similar designs; if canon wants to replace them all it'd make sense the 35/2 and 135SF are next. No idea if they are though.

As for the 2.8, fast wide glass is hard to design and expensive, and again, may damage 24L and 28 1.8 sales,
though there's always the chance the 28 1.8 is being replaced too.

Like the new 24 this lens does not appear to have weather sealing either  :-[
