Summary: I researched this one before purchasing it. I use it to avoid having to constantly swap between my 18-55mm and 55-250mm lens. It's heavy, but not too heavy for my long walks. Using it with the small SL1 body compensates. I like it.
this is a very good lens for amateur ,but the older one was sharper

Summary: very good lens,nice pictures,colors,well built...ect The lens is lightweight and takes nice pictures,in my opinion that's all you need to take with you if you are going on vacation.It's not as sharp as the "L" lens,but the picture quality is decent enough
Summary: Mine came as the kit lens with the 70D (which I'll review separately). I usually shoot prime, but for only $200 more than the body, it seemed like a no brainer. My only other zoom is the 24-105mm L, which also came in a kit. While the 24-105 works on a full frame and has better build quality, it still is a good base for comparison. What stands out is the absolutely silent auto focus and IS. So it can be done...
Summary: I bought this lens to video kid activities. The lens is what I expected. It works great with my camera, especially for video. I have used it a number of times now, and am very happy with it. It is a good value for the money.
Summary: I got this lens with T4i refurbished kit about 3 weeks back and so far am very happy with it. I am new to dSLR photography and am still learning the finer tricks. I have one problem and I am do not think it's a issue with lens itself, but more like camera and lens combination. While recording videos in low light with lens close to fully zoomed in, camera loses its focus way off easily, if it finds an obstruction on its way.
Summary: This lens is ok overall. Auto-focusing is pretty fast (compared to the 18-55mm and 55-250mm lenses). It's very quiet - I don't hear movement of the lens when it auto-focuses. The zoom range and picture quality is good for an all-in-one everyday use lens. I have not had any lens creep problem and have not used the lens lock button for that reason. The lens seems pretty sturdy. I only have a few problems with the lens regarding the manual (and sometimes auto) focus.
Excerpt: Bought this lens as a Kit lens with the EOS 70D. I highly recommend this lens when it is available in a kit, since it is really good value for the money. I shoot about 2000 pics with it now and the overall performance is quite good. <br /><br />- Video <br />If shooting Video, this lens is a must have for all STM optimized cameras. Unlike my EF 40 F2.8 STM this lens is ABSOLUTELY SILENT! You litrally have to press your ear on it to hear the STM at all.
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
