I wanted to test out a very nice mid level Canon lens.  The Canon EF 28-90mm 4-5.6 USM lens is a mid level lens which is often overlooked for it's larger more robust 28-35mm 3.5-5.6 IS USM sibling.  Although the 28-90 does not offer IS (aka Image Stabilization), it does have a shallower depth of field than the 28-135.  

I've read reviews bad mouthing the 28-135mm lens.  Some photos on this site was taken with that lens.  The 28-135mm was my first lens; and my work horse.  I found it perfect for all day walk-about photo shoots.  Keeping this in mind I purchased the 28-90mm.  I was surprised to find the amount of depth of field and as you can see, the lens does able one to capture quality photos.

If you are in the market for an alternative lens, don't write off the Canon 28-90mm 4-5.6 USM lens.  For the rest of the week, I am going to really put this lens to the test.  Please leave your comments.  I'd like to know YOUR opinion on the quality of the photo below.

One last thing... This photo is my Pic of the Day :)  Hello Mostly365!
