The Canon 28-105 F3.5-4.5 II USM is not a bad lens. At about $230 brand new this is one of the best bargains Canon offers as far as image quality goes. I've been using one for a few years now, usually one one of my film cameras but have also used it quite a bit on the 10D and 30D digital bodies. Wide open the image quality is pretty good, stop down to F5.6 and it gets even better. Its almost as good as my 24-105L F4 IS lens but at a faction of the cost. Its very light weight and fairly compact as well. It works well as a general purpose or walk around lens, though depending on your shooting style or particular location there may still be times you want to go a little wider. Overall its a great lens for the money.
