Summary: Good for someone new to photography. But honestly terrible lens compared to the STM version I have had this for a year and just I really dislike it. Every time I used a different lens other then this one it was like wow my lens sucks honestly just get a used STM version or a 50mm
Summary: The package is not the original one. Kinda sketchy, and it feels light too. The material used is not even close compared to my lenses. But works fine. I just dont feel thats the worth of my money.
Excerpt: Must make this clear that it is the older version of 18-55mm before they upgraded it to fit the 450D and above. So 400D and below. ======== When starting out in photography; most people get entry level camera body like 400D Canon EOS, this lens comes with the body to form the basic kit lens.
Pros: Worst lens for a professional but good to start out with; cheap; easy to learn with;
Cons: Worst lens for a pro, frontal element rotates,

Summary: This lens is delivered with no box - I'm 99% certain it's the kit lens that normally comes with the camera. It is not marked as being a later generation product. Read any review and they all say that the Canon kit lens aren't great and I agree with that. The sharpness just isn't there.
Summary: I received an EF-M Lens instead of an EF-S lens the sad part is this isn't there first time sending the wrong lens so for more buyingers interested make sure to check the lens box before opening
Excerpt: I recently purchased a sweet Canon 400D/XTi Rebel from Amazon.co.uk (£45 cashback!) and this standard zoom lens (Canon EF-S 18-55mm) came with it. As far as I know, you cannot purchase the Canon EF-S 18-5mm on it's own, as it's designed specifically to be sold with the 400D/XTi Rebel package.
