Creeeeepy

Photo guy, B&H Photo
20 May 2015
  • Excerpt: I knew it from the reviews but... pretty significant lens creep out of the box. Reasonable sharpness for the price. Just needed an inexpensive walk around lens and a lens I can take on the river without the worry of ruining the "L" lens. It will work but come on Canon, get the creep out!
  • Pros: Lightweight
  • Cons: Lens Creep

great lense but hate the lense creep

  • Excerpt: I just purchased this lense a month ago. Took it on a photo shoot and the pics turned out great but cause I like to keep my camera on a tri pod while walking the lense would creep all the way out while pointed downwards. I've exchanged this lense 3 times now with the same problem.

Nice zoom except it expand by itself

  • Excerpt: It is a nice lens and it is versatile. The only downside of it for now, it expand by itself when the camera is in a face down position like when I use my BlackRapid strap. I contacted Canon and they said me it is normal.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Versatile
  • Cons: Weak Casing

Everyday Lens

  • Excerpt: I really like this lens. I use it almost daily for a huge variety of shoots. From close up nature photography to portraits I do it all with this lens. I would love to 'love' this lens. However, it is quite heavy and through use the lens creep is atrocious.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus
  • Cons: Heavy, Lens Creep

Zoom moves when pointed down

Robert, B&H Photo
15 February 2015
  • Excerpt: The lens doesn't seem to do well in low light. When the lens is pointed down, it has insuffient friction to maintain the zoom. So if you point it down, it zooms out fully. I find this highly irritating. In good light, it performs well throughout its length.
  • Cons: Lens Creep, Poor in Low Light

Decent all around lens

Bulletz, Canon
11 July 2014
  • Conclusion: I am an advanced beginner in photography, shooting digital for the last 5 years. This lens is a good overall walk around lens, with sharpness being an issue only at the widest angle. The lens does zoom itself put, especially when carrying it on your shoulder or pointing it downwards.
  • Pros: Fast auto-focus, image stabilizer, metal mount, wide angle to short tele
  • Cons: Semi-sharp images, mainly plastic, lens slippage, lack of wide aperture, no lens hood, heavy, image sharpness varies

Excellent Glass

Randy Wright, Amazon
4 June 2014
  • Summary: This lens has excellent glass and performs very well, but the zoom creep is horrible. I have a lens band on it and that works, but for the price the lens should not have this much creep. I have a 15-85 Canon and it has zero creep.

Great focal range, decent price, but...

Blue Fox, B&H Photo
14 January 2014
  • Excerpt: There's no comparable lens in Canon's lens arsenal, or any other Canon-compatible lens manufacturer, that has this focal range, so in that respect this lens is ideal and well priced.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight

Nice Glass, Mechanical Issues not Disclosed

Justin Legg, Amazon
2 December 2013
  • Summary: Lens was in ok condition, not quite what it sounded like from the listing. The auto/manual focus switch, while it looks like it works doesn't. The lens stays on auto focus all the time, very annoying for a guy who normally goes all manual.
