Good for landscapes, buildings

Canon
19 August 2014
  • Conclusion: Good all-around general purpose lens, versatile enough for many situations. Relatively light weight. Good for a walk in the woods because it can capture a decent wide-angle landscape shot, yet still take a great close-up photo of an object along the trail, such as a flower. Limited zoom means it cannot get a close-up of distant wildlife, so if that's your target, you will need to consider a different lens.
  • Pros: lightweight, takes good photos at night, wide angle

Cheap lens. Not particularly durable or particularly clear.

  • Summary: Kit lens. Cheap and cheerful. I bought one and it dropped it (inside a bag) and broke it when I was out shooting one day. Not particularly sharp. Not particularly fast. But cheap. If you need a good, durable lens get an L series lens as usual.

  • Summary: I don't know how my lens broke but thankfully a replacement was not hard to come by, and for much less than I expected to pay!

Okay lens

  • Conclusion: This lens came with the camera I bought. I found it to be easy to work with when adjusting the basic settings such as auto/manual focus and turning the stabilizer on and off. I found that when shooting, a lot of pictures did not come out as expected due to the slow lens. I'd suggest this lense for beginner portraits, but nothing moving. The focus is easily broken, and it is extremely slow on auto focus.
  • Cons: Slow auto-focus, Semi-sharp images, Poor build quality, focus easily obstructed

  • Summary: This is the starting point for everyone, and while the Newer usm versions with IS are cool, I like this one more, im a sucker for simpler tech. You have to really work this lens, alot of things can be learned with it.
