The Canon EF 28mm f2.8 IS USM Lens is the world's first wide-angle prime with Image Stabilisation and is an ideal all-purpose lens for full frame cameras and features Canon's classic compact prime design. The fast f2.8 maximum aperture and Image Stabilisation (IS) enables hand-hand photography without the need for flash and permits the use of shutter speeds up to four stops slower than normal. A seven-bladed circular aperture provides beautiful bokeh, while Super Spectra coatings reduces flare. Canon's ultrasonic autofocus motor (USM) provides fast, near silent focusing with full-time manual-focus override for fine adjustment. Weighing at just 260g and measuring a compact 68.4mm x 51.5mm in size, the EF 28mm f/2.8 IS USM is a great, lens that you can take everywhere.
10th Feburary 2012 - "This week Canon officially added three new EF lenses to their lineup, including the very much anticipated next generation 24-70mm f2.8 lens as well as two replacements for the very popular 24mm f2.8 and 28mm f2.8 primes." Read more about the New Lenses here...
Canon EF 28mm f2.8 IS USM Lens
A 28mm lens suited to landscape and reportage photography.
Field of view equivalent to a 45mm lens on DSLRs with APS-C sized sensors.
Work with shallow depth of field and in low-light with a fast f/2.8 maximum aperture.
Shoot hand-held flash-free images at shutter speeds up to four stops slower with Image Stabilizer technology.
Ultrasonic motor for fast, near-silent focusing and full-time manual focus.
Seven diaphragm blades generate a circular aperture for beautiful background blur.
Super Spectra coatings reduce ghosting and flare.
The full comparison between the new 28mm f2.8 IS USm lens and the previous model can be found in the table below:
High-quality wide-angle lens
A 28mm wide-angle prime lens offering an 75° angle of view on full-frame DSLRs. On EOS cameras with APS-C sized sensors it makes a great standard lens, offering the equivalent view to a 45mm lens on a full-frame camera.
Shoot in low-light conditions
A maximum aperture of f/2.8 permits hand-held photography in available light without the use of flash. Image stabilisation allows shutter speeds up to four stops slower than normal to be used without the risk of camera shake.
Fast, quiet autofocus
Canon’s ultrasonic autofocus motor (USM) provides fast, near-silent focusing. Full-time manual-focus override permits fine adjustment without changing focus modes.
Get as near to your subject as 0.23m, and enjoy a dramatic wide-angle perspective.
Space- saving design
Weighing just 260g and measuring 68.4mm x 51.5mm in size, the EF 28mm f/2.8 IS USM is a lens you can take everywhere. Great for travel, landscape and documentary photography.
Designed for great image quality
A seven-bladed circular aperture provides beautiful bokeh, while Super Spectra coatings reduce flare. The EF 28mm f/2.8 IS USM classic prime-lens design minimises distortion and aberrations, which can degrade image quality.
Area of use
Perfect for landscape and travel photography and reportage applications, when a wide-angle field of view enables dramatic close-up shooting.

Are you eligible for finance?
Applicants must be:
Aged 18 years or older from the application date
In permanent UK residence for a minimum of three years
Fulfil at least one of the following employment criteria:
In regular, permanent employment.
Retired from regular employment - With a minimum age of 50.
Not working through disability.
Note: All applicants will be subject to a credit reference check by the lender.
Credit is subject to application and status. Warehouse Express Ltd trading as Wex Photographic act as credit broker and not the lender. Barclays Partner Finance act as the lender.
Can I repay early? If so how?
No repayments are scheduled in the initial six-month deferral period. However, it is possible to pay off the loan, either by way of a lump sum or in smaller amounts. If the loan is fully repaid within the six-month deferral period, then no interest is payable, but a £29.00 early-settlement will be incurred. Such repayments may be made to Barclays Partner Finance by cheque, debit card or standing order. Unfortunately it is not possible to set up a direct debit within the deferral period. Further information on how to make such repayments will be set out in the loan agreement pack provided by Barclays Partner Finance.
What happens if I don't repay within the first six months (deferral period)?
Following the six month deferral period, Barclays Partner Finance will initiate a monthly direct debit payment for the remaining duration of the loan. Interest will be charged at a rate of 19.9% APR on outstanding balances (backdated to the first date of the loan). Late payment penalties and early repayment charges will apply from this point. Barclays Partner Finance will send a reminder letter approximately one month before the six month deferral period is due to elapse. Note: If you chose to spread the cost and pay monthly, interest is charged from the start of the loan, not from the start of the repayment period.
What will I receive from the finance provider (lender)?
Barclays Partner Finance will send a loan agreement pack approximately four weeks after delivery of the goods, confirming that the account has been activated and, from this point, it is possible to make repayments against the loan.
