Additional information:

The Canon EF 28-90 mm f/ 4-5.6 USM   is a very compact standard zoom lens for Canon EOS film and SRL cameras.

It features a very reasonable price-quality relationship.

It can be easily mounted on both FF and APS-C cameras. In case with APS-C cameras the equivalent focal length is 45-114 mm.

It has a very convenient range of focal lengths (especially on FF cameras) and allows you to shoot a variety of scenes and subjects from landscapes to portraits.

The Canon EF 28-90 mm  f/ 4-5.6 USM is equipped with a built-in USM and really features very fast and accurate focusing.

The lens generates a rather sharp, especially at the center, picture with good contrast and natural color  rendering.

The optical scheme utilizes an aspherical element. Baring in mind the lens price, aberrations are well corrected. Distortion and chromatic aberrations are almost negligible..

The lens features quite good macro capabilities. Minimum focusing distance is just 38 cm. Max. magnification ratio is 0.3 at 90 mm

The Canon EF 28-90 mm  f/ 4-5.6 USM is a good choice as a kit zoom lens for beginners.

Compatible hood: EW-60C
