Summary: The first lens ordered only worked for about 10 shutters when apparently the focus ring/gears broke. Contacted Closeout Factory and owner agreed to send a replacement. So far, the replacement lens has worked for 2 photo session and about 300 shutters.
Summary: This has been the lens I have been using since I first got my Canon EOS Rebel T3 back in 2012. I have gotten other lenses along the way like the 50mm 1.8/f and a Sigma 50-200mm 4.0-5.6/f. For the price, either bundled or bought used for about $100, this is not a bad lens.
Summary: Great cheap lens for a great cheap sub-professional photographer. If I'd had the money for a wider-range lens, I would have picked that up instead, but this one will work for what I need for now.
But 18mm on my 18-135mm starter lens works fine. Other than that

Summary: At the 18mm setting, My Canon 60D gets an error code from the lens. Never seen that error before. But 18mm on my 18-135mm starter lens works fine. Other than that, this lens performs flawlessly. Great for low light, close up work.
