    I've used both and I prefer the 28-135. The image stabilization is nice in darker places, the lens is bigger and has a better build quality. The 28-105 feels cheaper and small.

    Ok that works then. For outdoor stuff 3.5 should be plenty.

    It's a good lens. It was my daily work horse for 4 years, and then started feeling tired in terms of its action. But the focus remained quick enough, and the sharpness was good enough for me.

    Of course, Canon makes a 24-105 1:2.8 L lens that costs a LOT more, but is unBELIEVABLY!! good.
