That would be awesome if Asta or someone else did it. And don't strain yourself thinking of lyrics for me, Tante. Just keep me in mind the next time you get inspired and go on a song-writing binge

Depends how wide you want to go!

28m on most cropped bodies will be equivalent to 42mm, so it'll be closer to a standard 50mm than a wide angle.

See our lens guide for examples and an explanation:

thanks that helped a bit. I am planning on getting the 17-85 is with my 40d but i was wondering if the 28-135 would be good. So 17-85 it is.

thank you Gordon.

Hi Jake, the 17-85mm will give you wide angle coverage, but it depends if you want or need it. Many people are happy with the 28-135mm or the 24-105mm. Multiply the figures by 1.5 times and check out the example pics on our lens guide to see what you'd be getting...

so the 28-135 would give me about 42-203mm which is about standard up to a decent telephoto, the 24-105 would give me about 36-158 so again standard to tele. So for my everyday walk around lens i think i might just get the 28-135 be cause i don't really need the wide angle that the 17-85 gives and i would like a little bit of a tele photo. But i'm still not sure which one to get.

I say go for the 17-85mm just becuase the wider the angle the more fun you will have taking pictures.
