Not a good buy

ModelMaker "faceache2", Amazon
6 June 2011
  • 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. You can do no better than put your money into decent lenses and so I would recommend that you avoid this and look elsewhere.

Only good for closeup photography...but image quality is poor....

Jeen Raj, flipkart.com
27 August 2009
  • Summary: This lens came with my Rebel T2i and it is sharp only for closeup shoots. Landscape photography with this lens is a waste of time, it results in distorted images and sharpness is also very poor. This is a very basic lens and should only use for casual purposes. Canon 55-250mm lens beats this basic one. Images with 55-250mm is sharp and is pretty good. Now thinking to buy 50mm / 1.8 lens after reading the reviews....

Mediocre Lens!! (always under utilizes your camera performance)

Roshan Jain, flipkart.com
7 August 2009
  • Summary: This lens came with my 550D but does it not offer sharp and crispy pictures, it is good lens for Family pictures and it will somehow fill all the megapixels in your DSLR but results are just normal. Do not get trapped with this kit lens, buy a body and go for 50mm f1.8 instead. If you are there to shoot family functions and those kind of events then simply buy a point and shoot, you don't need a DSLR for that!

Kitsch Kit Lens

davecham, Ciao
26 December 2008
  • Excerpt: "...and won several entry level Canon DSLR's, each of which have been furnished with this 'kit' lens. It is quite obviously the result of cost-cutting exercises at Canon in an effort to keep a headline grabbing low prices for the camera/lens combinations as advertised in the photographic press and at point of sale. This is very evident in the build quality of the lens. It is really quite poor. Very plasticy, extremely light (too light in my opinion) ...
  • Pros: Keeps the dust off the sensor !
  • Cons: Poor quality .  Poor build quality, Poor performance .

stabilotto non indispensabile

guasna, Ciao
24 August 2011
  • Excerpt: Lo stabilotto: Obiettivo base per chi entra nel mondo delle reflex, da semigrandangolare (con l'APS - C) a medio tele. quindi a prima vista copre un range piuttosto alto di situazioni fotografiche. Personalmente opterei per altri obiettivi tutto fare, data la sua costruzione non eccelsa, poichè è quasi interamente in plastica (fino all'attacco), ha una messa a fuoco lenta ed imprecisa ed una resa dei colori non ottimale. gli unici punti a favore sono ...
  • Pros: stabilizzatore
  • Cons: messa a fuoco lenta e rumorosa, qualità costruttiva, resa dei colori

Objektiv mit relativ guter Abbildungsleistung, für Alltagsgebrauch okay

ratisbonanza, eBay.de
9 August 2011
  • Summary: Objektiv mit relativ guter Abbildungsleistung, wobei es aber massive Serienstreuung gibt, man sollte bei Weitwinkel und Offenblende testen und sich den Bildrand anschauen. Alles in allem aber empfehlenswert als einfaches immer dabei Objektiv bei Abbildungsleistungen, die nicht gerade für großformatige Drucke reichen, aber für Alltagsgebrauch okay.
