This standard zoom lens replaces the EF28-80mm f/3.5-5.6 II USM, which was released in 1993 and has been highly acclaimed for its compact size and high cost performance. Retaining the same optical system as its predecessor, the new model features a sophisticated “silky” surface finish, a zoom ring offering enhanced operability, and a knurled manual-focus ring.
