Such an upgrade from the IS II

Steve from KOP, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I originally purchased the 18-55mm IS II from Canon (it came with a T4i bundle). That lens recently broke so I needed to find a replacement and after doing lots of research of lens in that range I decided to give the STM version a try. This lens is sooo much nicer than the IS II version. The glass is really nice and I could not believe how fast the autofocus works (both video and still).
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
  • Cons: Non-metal Construction

Not many choices for the EOS-M.

  • Summary: Nice compact lens that takes reasonably sharp photos. Most photo editing programs can correct for imperfections caused by this lens. It seems nicely built and is much smaller than an EL series lens. I'd like a lower f stop range though.

It's a nice kit lens upgrade

  • Summary: I upgraded my original 18-55mm to the STM after I fell in love with the STM drive on the 40mm pancake. This upgrade had a number of useful advantages.

Good for the price; lower quality than the camera's sensor

  • Summary: A decent, low cost addition to my portable camera kit. It's a pleasure to use. It focuses plenty fast, feels well built and seems nicely matched to the EOS M body/weight. Whereas the 22mm pancake lens is so good that it lets the sensor provide all the quality it offers, this lens holds back the sensor a bit. And that's my only real gripe - it's just not as sharp as I'd like.

Great comact DSLR

  • Excerpt: I have this to take pictures of my industrial workplace and people working as well as scenery. It delivers a great picture in a small camera for a decent price. I also shoot with a 60D and this is very comparable in picture quality and features. Thing I miss most is the fold-out screen.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Quiet

Amazing little Dynamo!

Andre de Saint Phalle, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: As a 10 year pro wedding photographer I was absolutely surprised at the ease of handling, depth of control, and quality of the images! Seriously amazing feat of engineering! The STM Lenses focus very quickly and take unbelievably sharp images. I got the 18-55 and the 55-250 which gives me 28-400mm equivalent. The IS works well. 4 frames per second is decent, but a little frustrating.
