The only problem I have with the 28mm is that it's softer and more prone to CA than my 50mm. Not much, but I do notice it. Stop it down to f/2.8 though and I'm extremely happy with it.

You should check out the 35 f/2.0 -- it's a really awesome lens, and it's even shown to be as good or better than the 35L in some regards. I looked at the 28 and 35 back to back, and even though I liked the USM and aesthetics, it was just too soft for me. Highly recommended.

edit:

Here's a decent example -- wide open, and only 25 @ 1.0 sharpening added in LR, resized by flickr.



1/40, ISO 800 on the XS. I was also pretty hammered, so I was stuck on Aperture Priority for the evening.

I can't do that; USM is too good of a tool for me to give up.

I can do without it on the 35, for sure. The ring is clutched, and the AF/MF switch is easily accessed while holding the camera -- it might be noisy, but it's still very fast.

either way tho, i would get the 70-200/4 IS of course im assuming you can shoot at 1/640 at f4. the 70-200/4IS is much sharper then the mk1 70-200/2.8, it is also lighter and easier to handhold.
Yeah, its various NASCAR series. I'm pretty sure I can't get that fast of a shutter speed with the 4L at night, which is why I was leaning toward the 2.8L. How much sharpness would I be losing? Only telephoto lens I've shot with is the 55-250 3.5-5.6 IS, which is terrible at night at the track.

I don't think that 1 stop will do much help.

This. Unless it's the difference between 1/250 and 1/500

You can always slightly underexpose with the F4, than bring it back with RAW.

I have hardly anything in motion at night since everything was so blurry or way underexposed with the 55-250. I I didn't have a media pass back then either so I was shooting from the stands, which sucks TBH.

Here's a couple quick ones that I had on my hard drive. Full res link should have exif
