Canon EF USM 28-200 mm F/3.5-5.6 USM Lens

This compact, high ratio zoom lens was developed along with the EF28-200mm f/3.5-5.6 USM lens and is identical to it except that a DC motor is used instead of the USM for focusing. The optical and operational specifications are the same also. The silver ring at the front of the zoom ring presents high-quality appearance, and the optical system uses only environmentally friendly lead-free glass.

Let me begin by saying I am not very intense as a purist - but I am a passionate enthusiast of digital photography.
