  • Excerpt: I've had this lens for about a month. I've used it for some landscape, some street pictures around town and some shots of flower gardens and macro photos of flowers. I've used it on a 50D body and a T3i body about equally. I've shot three or four hundred frames with it. Overall, I'd say that it's a pretty mediocre lens. Photozone.de has described it as "substandard".

Everything they offer

  • Summary: This lens is great, is everything I expected, the only thing I didn't like was the wrapping, it was done only with plastic and a small carton box. I was expecting at least the original box with instructions, as far as I know I don't know if the lens is new or refurbished.

good enough

  • Conclusion: this lens came with my camera package from Costco. It does take great photos but I dislike the fact that when taking close ups at 18mm there is a shadow at the bottom of the picture. I also extremely dislike the weight and the fact that the lens will not stay at the zoom I am at if I tip the camera forward.
  • Pros: Superior build quality, Super-sharp images
  • Cons: lens creep, lens shadow at 18mm, weight

Good zoom range & sharp, but vignettes & heavy front element

  • Summary: I purchased this lens to go with my Canon EOS 20D digital SLR, which I inherited from a friend who unfortunately had passed away. The camera came to me with only a wide angle zoom, but most of the photos I shoot are in the normal to telephoto range. So I chose this lens because of its good zoom ratio, and it's relatively compact size. The latter makes it a good all-around lens to travel light, such as on overseas vacations.

Very heavy for the Rebel Xs

  • Summary: I purchased this as an upgrade lens for my Canon Rebel XS. After reading many reviews I decided to give this lens a go, I was looking to upgrade from the kit 18-55, to a lens that could offer quality optics as well as an all-in-one lens. I am a mom and I primarily use my camera for pictures of my children to scenic views of our outings. My children are still young so I couldn't afford the time to change lenses to get the perfect shot.

beginner lens

rudeboy, Canon
24 August 2011
  • Conclusion: The lens is big and heavy but feels good and balanced on my 60D.......but my tripod wasn't strong enough to hold it up while i was shooting video of a model. The thing attracts dust like crazy and the 200 side isn't long enough. Autofocus is not bad and images are sharp but not great.
  • Pros: Superior build quality
  • Cons: Slow auto-focus, Semi-sharp images, Poor build quality
