Summary: I got this with my Canon EOS 20D. After a year or so, I tried the old lenses from my 35 mm Canon EOS 650, lenses from the late 1980's. They are much better, and I still use them. The only thing I miss is the wider angle of this lens. (The old lens was 35-70 or something like that, and that is magnified * 1,6 into 56mm - 112mm, since the digital camera is not full frame.) This is a kit lens, and I don't think its a particularly good one.

Summary: The Canon EF-S 18-55mm F/3.5-5.6 Lens works like a charm. It is a sturdy and dependable all purpose lens. Picture quality: 5/5 - Excellent Size / weight: 5/5 - Excellent Value for money: 5/5 - Excellent I would definitely recommend Canon over Nikon, or Sony. Canon builds products that last.
Perfect basic lens for a Canon T3 if you don't need a fast lens.

Summary: I use several of these lenses on Canon T3s in my photo booth business. I use a studio flash always so a fast lens is not necessary. Images are sharp. The lenses are work horses and have not failed even after 10,000+ shots.
Affordable workhorse for APS-C cameras - everyone should have one!

Summary: Great lens and a big improvement over the earlier Non IS versions. The optics seem better and the contrast too! Image Stabilization make this very useful and I have sucessfully taken pictures (in my local bar) hand held at 1/4 second with no camera shake - OK I was sitting down!. Usually supplied as a kit lens with EOS rebels this lens is often disregarded as cheap and worthless.... WRONG!
