    I'm leaving for a 3 month trip to the Yucatan in a few weeks, and I was going to pick up a wide angle zoom (either the 10-22 or the tokina 12-24), but I'm thinking I may just go with this instead, because I'd rather just have one lense on the camera at all times instead of walking around and switching the wide angle out alot. I can't do both cause I'm poor.

    THe local shop has it on sale for 400 new. I don't really have a good walk around lens, right now I have the standard 20d kit lens, thrifty 50, and the POS 75-300 f/9000 which I probably won't even bring with.
     
  2. I was wondering this too if you could use the 28-135 IS on a 350D

    No, it won't work. Sorry. Only EF-s lenses work on the Rebel Series. :rolleyes:

    actually it can. anything with EF, or EF-S can be used on your camera. he was being a sarcastic dick.

    don't know, I shoot Nikon. but i have shot with that sigma and the build quality is pretty good and has been well worth the money.

    I just got one to replace the kit lens... the difference in quality of the photos is amazing. It came very highly recommended by many people, and I can see why.

    May not be L glass, but I quite enjoy it.

    :werd: :werd: I've used a lot of lenses including a ton of third party stuff including consumer third party lenses and the 28-135 IS has to be the worst, ever. I've used two and neither were sharp at all. Even with IS, you can get faster lenses in this range for cheaper so what's the point? I'd get a Tammy 28-75mm f/2.8 instead to be honest.

    I'd recommend the 17-85IS or 28-75 F2.8 tamron

    I'm on vacation now and kicking myself for not bringing anything wider than 17mm. I wish I had a 10-22 rather than my 70-200.
