Showing 1-10 of 28
Not up to Canon standards.

Summary: I was incredibly disappointed with this order. Yes, it is a great price, but the lens I received had an incredibly jerky zoom mechanism. I have used this same lens on my Canon 50D previously and had not experienced this jerkiness, which made it is impossible for me to use as my all-purpose lens.
Excerpt: I bought this lens for use on my T2i, knowing full well that it's junk. Optical quality is nothing special and you can get advanced point and shoots with better. Focus speed isn't great and build quality is seriously as low as it gets with a Canon product.
Conclusion: I received this lens with my Canon T2i as a birthday present. In the beginning, I couldn't really tell the difference between this and any other lens. As I gained experience, I found out exactly how limited this lens can be.
Excerpt: My rating is based on an overall comparison of all available lenses and does not reflect the price of this lens. This lens is intended for users who aren't after top notch image quality and for them this lens offers an excellent value especially when purchased in a kit.
Excerpt: Kit lens quality.[...] The sharpness is just not there. The IS is great, but you need the IS because it is not a very fast lens. It might work for a casual user, but for a hobbyist or someone just getting started...get better glass.
