The FE 28-80mm f/3.5-5.6 is a great zoom lens for those looking for lightweight everyday photography. The focal length comprises of both wide angle and a very short telephoto range. The lens is quite compact thanks to its f/3.5-5.6 aperture.
The FE 28-80mm f/3.5-5.6 incorporates one low dispersion element and three aspherical elements. This helps to minimize any chromatic aberration throughout the focal range. There is a linear motor along with an internal focus built in for fast and precise auto focus results.
Aiding the autofocus is the Optical SteadyShot image stabilization that does a good job with reducing camera shake from handheld shooting. The design is dust and moisture resistant for working in harsher weather conditions. A seven blade circular diaphragm gives beautiful bokeh to the shots.
The lens is designed for full frame E mount cameras but is also compatible with APS-C cameras for a 42-105 mm focal length range
