It was good when it worked

mike, Amazon
8 May 2012
  • Summary: Purchased in 2009 and by early 2012 the automatic focus stopped working. The lens was not used that often and having to replace it after 3 years is expensive and disappointing.

Not the same piece shipped from Adorama

sigsome1, Amazon
20 August 2009
  • Summary: I was looking for this lens and placed an Order through Amazon. It was being shipped by Adorama the actual seller of this product. Then, I notice the piece that is being shipped is a 'Refurbished' one, though there is no mention of that in the site when placing my order, or anywhere in the details of this item. When I call Adorama, the solution they offered was to just return it and get a credit for the amount paid.

Katie Harrison, Amazon
9 May 2014
  • Summary: For the 3rd time I received an EF-M lens......... I keep ordering the EF-S lens this exact on from this link and the EF-M lens keeps showing up at my door. The seal that holds the box shut says EF-M but there is another sticker on the box that says EF-S. Common Amazon get it together!

Warning - the lens has a design flaw

Dr. R. A. Macgregor "drrobmacgregor", Amazon
3 January 2012
  • Summary: I have had this lens since August 2009 when it came with my 450D (i.e. soon after they came out in the UK). I've been happy with the photos it has helped produce but buyers need to be aware of a design flaw with this lens. As you will find reported on the Internet this lens has a design flaw associated with its flex cable (circuitry within the lens itself) which after a certain amount of time/use means the autofocus completely stops working.

  • Excerpt: вывод: мы слишком бедны, чтобы покупать дешевые вещи
  • Pros: цена
  • Cons: сломался через 3,5 месяца после использования. не роняли, ничего такого не делали. и тем не менее, экспертиза показала, что это якобы мы виноваты, с чем я полностью не согласна. слишком уж нежное устройство получается. он хоть и дешевый, но срок его службы должен быть намного больше, чем 3 месяца

24 May 2011
  • Excerpt: Разбирал объектив чистил от песка, все шестеренки в механизме автофокуса были им загажены. И на поверке убедился в отсутствии оптического стаба, хотя кнопочка есть ее роль ограничена либо банальной эмуляцией наличия стаба. Короче дурилка пластиковая.
  • Pros: Цена
  • Cons: Конструктив, всасывает не только пыль но и крупные частицы песка, пластиковый байонет, отсутствие оптического стабилизатора (хотя надпись на объективе гласит о обратном)

Keine Alternative

Amazon Customer "agold", Amazon
2 April 2011
  • Summary: Es scheint schon einemal zweifelhaft, derartige Qualität in einem Kamera Kit zu verkaufen, als separat erwerbbare Optik für eine gute SLR ist es schlicht eine Zumutung. Zum "Urtyp" ohne IS (habe ich noch aus meinem 400D-Kit, das ich eigentlich verbessern wollte) kann ich keine Verbesserung der optischen Leistung feststellen (die diesbezüglichen Jubelmeldungen sind für mich überhaupt nicht nachvollziehbar), zudem bildet die Optik grundsätzlich zu dunkel ab.
