Overview:

The 28mm f/2.8 Color Skopar SL II Lens for Canon from Voigtlander is an extremely compact 28mm prime lens. A true wide angle lens, its angle of view on full frame cameras is 74.8º and on APS-C sized cameras is 53º. With a maximum aperture of f/2.8, it is bright and fast enough to handle low light situations and it produces sharp images with minimal aberrations. Its manual focusing ring handles well and its operation is particularly smooth and accurate. This is a well-crafted lens integrated for automatic metering on Canon SLR and DSLR cameras and is also a good option when shooting video.

  • Ultra compact lens approximately 1" (2.5 cm) long
  • Smooth and accurate manual focus
  • For Canon mount

Reviews:

  • Absolutely awesome review (blog.mingthein.com) by the inimitable Ming Thein: "...the manual focus action is nicely damped and perfectly weighted – they certainly got the feel right with this lens" and just look at his amazing photos(blog.mingthein.com)....he is awesome with this lens! (Review is for Nikon and Canon Mount, product offered here is for Canon mount only [perfect for EOS])

  • Steve Huff has a long history of accurate and clever reviewing, and his review (stevehuffphoto.com) is for a Nikon mount (same product in every other way, of course)…."as for rendering and sharpness, it is excellent. The 28 2.8 is light, small and looks great on the camera. It is super easy to manually focus and because it is a wide-angle with an f/2.8 aperture, this makes it easier to nail focus than the 58 1.4. Either way…fantastic, especially for the money."
