Lens Description: The Canon EF 28-80 f/ 3.5-5.6 USM is the first version of a low-end kit lens with a 28-80 mm variable focal length for Canon EOS film and digital SLR cameras.rnrnCanon issued five variants of the lens, each of which had two versions: with and without USM.rnrnThis first variant of the lens is considered to be the most successful. Its optical scheme had never been borrowed by the lenses of this series.rnrnIt features a convenient range of focal lengths, a very good optical quality, a fast ultra-sonic motor and very attractive price on the secondary market.

Will it fit on a Canon EOS Rebel T3?

John Leonard

Yes any EOS Camera


Try screwing it into a EOS M3 and see what happens ;-)
As in, NO! it will not fit any EOS camera…
This is a EF mount lens so it will fit on a canon camera with a EF or EF-S mount.


Yes it will with an ef to efm adapter


Hi, will it work on the eos M10? Or do i need a adapter?

Max Hendel

Precisará do adaptador EF-EOS M.


This is a EF mount lens so it will fit on a canon camera with a EF or EF-S mount not on the EF-M mount camera’s.

Eugene Viljoen

Will it work on the Canon 650D


Yes, It works with all EOS cameras.


this lens gives me 40 aperure in the far end
very good lens sharpness and contrast at 6.3 aperture and above unfortunately i have one with broken autofocus but has full time manual focus
i think is better than 28-70 ii


Is this lens compatible with the canon 60d?


Yes. :) I think, it’s working on my 50D, i think it’ll work on 60D.


It will work on your 60D. It works on my 5D Mark II and T3i.
