An Average Lens, Barely, Barely Acceptable

Emily Jane, ABT Electronics
9 November 2012
  • Summary: I purchased this lens to use with my 50D. I wanted a lens that had a good zoom range, which this lens has. However, the lens has issues which doesn't make it a good buy for the price Canon is asking. First of all, I'm not at all happy with the sharpness of this lens; it just isn't there, no matter what shutter speed/f-stop you use. The first one I received was returned for not being sharp, and the second one I received wasn't any better.
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: auto focus mechanism jerky, Not Sharp, Poor build quality, poor color reproduction, Slow Auto-Focus

Against the Tide

Acontius "Acontius", Amazon
12 June 2012
  • Summary: Ordered hoping to have a nice travel lens, a sharp all-in-one. Two big complaints--build quality and muddy images. The first problem is the worst. My zoom barrel would just steadily extend to the max position even when walking slowly. Could not keep it in place. This was a major pain for shooting, plus it would have been a matter of time before I forgot it was extended and banged it against something or somebody.
