The-digital-picture reviews the Canon EF 28-105mm f/4-5.6 USM and writes;
“The Canon EF 28-105mm f/4.0-5.6 USM Lens is soft at all focal lengths with the aperture wide open. I would say the wide end is sharper, but figure on needing f/6.3 or f/8 to get decent sharpness. Corners are soft from 28-35mm until stopped down to f/8 or so.”

A good solid mid-range portrait lens | Rating: ★★★★☆
“It is a very good lens and a terrific value. It has sharp focus through most of it’s range and is a perfect companion for any Canon EOS camera. In fact I like it so much that it will become my primary lens and replace the EF-S 18mm to 55mm lens that was packaged with my Rebel T1i.” – by Bob Magic

Great price, great quality. | Rating: ★★★★☆
“I really don’t understand the negative reviews, this lens is an ideal all round lens, it isn’t expensive and its great quality for the price, it isn’t amazing but the quality is ideal for me.. I use a wide-angle, a macro, and a telephoto for my other needs and this is a great in-between lens for when I don’t want the extremes of an angle.” – by S. Butcher

Features & Specifications

Canon EF 28-105mm f/4-5.6 USM Specifications

This incredible lens is the smallest and lightest in its class. It’s totally new optically, with an Aspherical element to keep the quality up and the size down. Even more noteworthy is an entirely new Micro USM, that’s about half the length of previous designs–with the same focusing power and performance. Features like circular diaphragm blades (for natural backgrounds) and internal focusing (the front element never rotates) round out this great new lens.

All-Around, Practical Lenses
Very likely, your first EF lens will be (or was) one of these lenses. After all, they feature the most popular focal lengths. From wide-angle to telephoto, you get the best of both worlds. The smaller the maximum aperture, the smaller and lighter the lens.
