Kit Lens with a twist

Ted The Terrible, Adorama
4 June 2014
  • Excerpt: I ordered this lens for a Canon T4i. The STM was designed for this camera for focusing while filming. The noise created by non STM lenses is horrendous! The noise was eliminates with this lens but thats about it. The auto focus is not as advanced on this camera as the recently released 70D so it didnt benefit me. I'm also not a fan of really light weight lenses so that was a con.
  • Pros: Quiteness
  • Cons: Lightweigth

Great Lens

Al Carmichael, Amazon
19 May 2014
  • Summary: Exactly what I wanted. I am very pleased with this lens. Wish I had bought my EOS M with this lens first, even though the 22mm is also a very sharp lens. I like having a zoom.. It covers most of my casual needs very well..

Really good image quality but average build

James A. Wooten, Amazon
19 May 2014
  • Summary: This is my back up camera kit so it wont get a hard workout. Very satisfied with images but they are not in L-series class, still with a wee bit of post they are quite good. The build could be a bit better so not a candidate for long term use in a demanding environment. That said it is a good value for the money.

Great lens for the Canon EOS M camera

Kanehi, Amazon
18 May 2014
  • Summary: I bought the body and then this lens because it compliments each other. I bought the EF/EF-S lens adapter for the camera but it's a bit bulky when mated with EF/EF-S lenses. This came from a kit lens and sold individually. The lens is quiet and it has IS! The miniaturization is incredible as it's made of metal vs plastic. The sharpness is above average for this little lens.

Works better than my original kit lens

  • Summary: It's much better for video than the 40mm, and it as silent as advertised. It looks like they updated the optics to. I also liked anytime manual focus.

Surprisingly good optics in such a small package!

Lawrence Jacobsen "LJguitar", Amazon
15 May 2014
  • Summary: I wanted to upgrade my travel rig. Been using a Lumix LX-5 but the sensor is no match for the APS-C sensor in my T3i, so the EOS M with a Fotodiox adapter that accepts my Canon lenses seems optimum (and has proved to be a good choice). I want a bare minimum kit, and it was $150 cheaper to buy the EOS M with the 22mm lens, and then buy the 18-55mm separately. What has surprised me is how good the quality of this lens is.
