Greetings,

I'm leaving the end of the month for my big Alaska adventure cruise and looking for input on Canon IS lenses.

I'll be taking my 20D and 10D as a backup. My 90% of the time lens is my Tamron 28-75 F2.8. I'm very happy with the lens and results I get with it .... BUT ... I'm going to be spending a lot of time shooting from things that move while I'm up there (ship, smaller boats, train and helicopter).

So the question is....

Would it be worth spending the $400 for the Canon 28-135 F 3.5-5.6 IS lens for this trip and the shooting conditions or would you stick with the 28-75 F2.8 that you had? Do you think that the IS would more than make up for the slower lens?

Four weeks from today and I'm out of here [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Thanks,

Mike,

I have the 28-135 lens and it's a good lens. I use mine for weddings and when things start moving to much,primarily me. You can tell the difference. It is probably the cheapest IS lens out there and will worth the money, I don't think you will be sorry you spent the money.

I don't know what other lens you have, but you might want to consider the Canon 17-85 IS lens, it covers the range of your 28-75, but adds IS and also provides much better wide angle coverage than would the 28-135. The 17-85 IS EF-S lens is basically the 1.6x equivalent of the 28-135 IS lens.

Currently I have the Canon 18-55 that I ordered with the 20D so I do have a true 18mm wide angle. I also have the Tamron 28-75 and my Sigma 70-300. Overall I have pretty good coverage. My thinking on the 28-135 IS it would give me the IS at the longer range where I would need it more.

Thanks

Mike the 28-135IS is a good lens not the fastest around but the IS feature is great the lens was used on a trip to New Zealand last year and the amount of shots taken out of the bus window and light plane etc, tested the image shake I used the lens on my EOS3 and EOS D30 and was very pleased with the results

I have the 28-135 IS lens. It is a good lens and I use it a lot. I would get the lens regardless. The IS is good for long exposures like indoor events `and for bright days I would set the ISO to 200 or 400 with the IS turned off. I have the 20D as well.
