    Cons: Wobbling everywhere: Frontelement and focus mechanism (image jumps while focusing). Zoom and focus mechanism are not damped and are a little scratchy. Image quality is weak at the wide end, need's to be stoped down to f11.

    Pros: Very light, very compact, filter diameter 58mm, pretty good image quality in the range from 35mm to 105mm.

    Summary: It is halfe the size and a tenth of the costs of the EF 24-105 L and it does pretty much the same.

    Cons: Zoom a bit "mechanical" and clanky. 28-105 is not a great range for a 1.6x crop camera...

    Pros: Low price, good optics, relatively fast USM focusing. Fairly luminous lens at f3.5-4.5.

    Summary: Got this lens on the Swiss equivalent of ebay (ricardo.ch). Very good value for money. I got sharp pictures with it.
