Canon EF 28mm f/1.8 USM Prime Lens
The Canon EF 28mm f/1.8 USM Lens is a wide-angle prime lens with a fast maximum aperture of f/1.8 enabling effective low-light imaging and shallow depth-of-field focus. An aspherical lens element reduces aberrations and improves image sharpness at the frame edges. The ultrasonic focus motor (USM) provides fast and quiet autofocus (AF) action, which is especially important when shooting video. Manual focus via the rubber focus ring is smooth and accurate.

Fast and wide

The lens' large maximum aperture of f/1.8 ensures photographers can use fast shutter speeds in a variety of different lighting conditions, and blur backgrounds by controlling depth-of-field. An aspherical lens element corrects distortion and ensures the image is sharp across the frame. When fitted to EOS cameras with APS-C sized sensors, the EF 28mm f/1.8 USM offers a field of view equivalent to that of a 45mm lens on a full-frame camera, making this an ideal fast-aperture standard lens.


Ultrasonic focusing

A ring-type ultrasonic motor drives autofocus extremely quickly, and in near silence. Excellent holding torque ensures the point of focus is reached accurately, without overshooting. Furthermore, full-time manual override is available, making it possible to adjust focus without leaving AF mode.


Super Spectra coating

Super Spectra coatings ensure accurate colour balance and enhance contrast. They also reduce flare and ghosting – a common problem caused by light bouncing off a camera's sensor.


Integration with E-TTL II flash metering

The EF 28mm f/1.8 USM passes distance information back to a compatible EOS camera's E-TTL II flash system to ensure optimal flash metering.
