Incorrect photo for product title.

  • Summary: Beware of the listing, as the photo does not match the title. There are several versions of this lens which appear similar, and the photo is of the earlier non-"USM" version, which many of the listings are selling. The lens you get may match the picture, but you won't be getting the "USM" version. Verify with the seller which lens you will be receiving.

Costs little and will be a good starter lens

  • Summary: Lightweight very slow kit lenses that is sharp as a tack. Don't get stuck in a dark room with this one. If you have little money it is a great start. Better is the Canon 17 to 40mm.

  • Summary: Good as a kit lens, but I wouldn't buy it otherwise unless I had no other choice. I spent almost no time upgrading mine to a 15-85mm.
  • Pros: Light & Small, Sharp, Good IQ
  • Cons: Slow and noisy AF, filter ring rotates, feels like a toy

Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS review by shroud72

  • Summary: Not a bad kit lens or starting lens to have as it performs above average although it is not exceptional in any one thing. I recently reviewed by photo collection and saw that among my personal favorite photos this lens took a lot of them. A great starter lens capable of taking decent enough photos until you need a lens capable of lower light shots.
  • Pros: decent kit lens, IS works well, center sharp with decent corners
  • Cons: build quality is cheap

Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS review by luke

  • Summary: This lens came with my T2i. I used it in Europe and Corsica and found the images to be good, but I also was using a 24-105 L at the same time and the images from it were always better, obviously. I also have owned the first generation 18-55mm without IS and could not really tell a difference in the quality, build-wise or optically. I thought this lens was good, but not good enough to keep.
  • Pros: sharp, light, compact, IS, cheap price
  • Cons: plastic mount, build quality, bad zoom and focus rings
