I am looking to purchase a Canon 28-105 f3.5-4.5 lens. I was wondering, is there any appreciable difference between the mkI and mkII versions of the lens? There is about a $40 difference in price, so it's not a big deal (although that's enough for another CF card!). I was just wondering.

Thanks in advance!

Hi RhesEbag,

A warm welcome to the CameraLabs forums.

Check out this review of the Canon EF 28-105mm f/3.5-4.5 II USM Lens at The-Digital-Picture.com where they state that it "should not be confused with the much-lower-end Canon EF 28-105mm f/4.0-5.6 USM Lens" which they also review here. Hope this helps. 8)

Bob.

I know there is the 4-5.6 version of the lens also. So, Canon has made three 28-105's. The 4-5.6 version and the mkI and mkII versions of the 3.5-4.5. I'm asking if there is a difference between the latter two.

Looking on Canon's UK web site there are two versions of the 4.5-5.6 the MkII version has a micro USM focus motor and the MkI has a micro motor and there is only one version of the 3.5-4.5 which has a USM1 motor

Quite alright. The more I look the more I am thinking the difference is marginal. Otherwise I'd see different reviews for the two versions, right?
