    For portraits stick with what you got, wide angle is not a portrait lens, get a 50mm f1.8 or an 85mm f1.4 or 70-200mm f2.8 for portraits

    You do know that the 28-135mm is capable of more 'wide angle' than the 35mm lens, don't you?

    28-135mm f/3.5 IS USM is known to be a good lens... its silly to sell it

    also

    50mm f1.8 is under $100... there isn't a cheaper lens out there for portraits.

    Agree with all this. Portraits are the last thing I shoot with my wide angle
