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.
8 April 2013
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.
Summary: Being a photographer, I need various lenses to be able to get the perfect shots. This lens is just another item to put in my arsenal. This product works very well and the price can't be better. I would recommend this lens to everyone that is looking for a telephoto lens that is strong enough but is compact as well.
Summary: This Image Stabilized version of the lens is great. Resolution and image quality is much better than the original version. The lens is very light in weight, making it a welcome hiking partner.
Summary: I have a 18 mega-pixle Cannon T3i, I bought this because I needed to photograph coins to sell on eBay, it was a used lens but I didn't spend a fortune on it so if you like to shot small pictures this is pretty nice.
Summary: First off let me say I am not a professional, I am just a guy that started down this journey because I was tired of lack of light from the flash, along with lack of real options from a point and shoot, and no reasonable way to do anything about it. I just want to take a shot like a point and shoot but have the option to use some creative control when I wanted. With that said, I use this lens 90% of the time and love it.
Summary: This is a great lens. It came new still originally wrapped. I am a beginning photographer, and this was so easy to use! I got the camera without the lens, so I needed one. I looked up lenses for this camera, and this one seemed to be the best option: reasonable price, great track record on the seller, and I could get it next-business-day. The lens went on without a hitch.
