NOT a USM
12 May 2008
Summary: I dont know what lens everyone else here got but look at the photo on this product page.. this is NOT a USM lens, it does not say USM anywhere on the lens which means it is NOT a USM lens, at least the one I have is not a USM.
Summary: I got this lens as part of a 20d kit. The lens feels cheaply made, with plastic construction. Feeling cheap isn't the only problem as many of the images come out pretty soft. I ended up buying the Sigma 18-125 after about 3 months of putzing around with this lens. The sigma proved to be much sharper and afforded more reach, albeit at a price double what this lens is worth. If I were to do it again I would have bought the 20d body only and gotten the Sigma lens.
Summary: This lens is a great walk around lens if you're just taking pictures of the family, some friends, or other casual events. Do not expect professional grade pictures with this lens. Yes, for the amount of money you're paying, you're getting a bargain. Just expect incredibly soft focus and poor color rendition. I thought I had a bum copy of the lens when I first got it, so I went up to a local photo shop and tested one of theirs.
Summary: Let there be no mistake: this is the lens that comes with the 20D kit. I don't know about the digital Rebel, but I have purchased the 20D, and this is the lens that came with it. I'm fairly satisfied with it thus far, but I would be more inclined to pick up one of the L-series lenses instead as the glass is of noteably higher quality.
Summary: This lens comes in a kit, so you shouldn't expect much out of it. It feels light weight, and very cheap. If your looking for sharpness and beautiful image quality, I would go with an "L" series lens.
Summary: Auch mit diesem Objektiv gelang mir ein preiswerter Einkauf eines Canon-Originalobjektiv. Die gelesenen Kritiken von Verzerrungen im Randbereich der Aufnahmen konnten von mir bei keiner Einstellung der Brennweiten von 18 bis 55 mm festgestellt werden.
Excerpt: Hinta-laatusuhteeltaan ihan OK. Olen itse saanut kohtuullisia kuvia 35mm - 55mm, f/8 ja pienemmillä aukoilla. Omassa linssissäni on laajakulmapuolella ikävää backfocus-ongelmaa jonka huomaa etenkin lähikuvissa (minimietäisyydellä linssi tarkentaa noin 2cm kohteen taakse).
