Great Cheap 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.
Excerpt: From what I've read this lens is nothing special, but for my purposes it gets the job done. I am using it to take indoor pictures mostly and it works fine. I don't have experience with high-priced lenses, so I don't know what I'm missing.
Excerpt: I wanted a lens that was more versatile than my prime lenses for just being out and about, but didn't want to have to invest too much, while staying as high in quality as possible. I actually used this lens at a wedding in a small space this past weekend and it worked great! The only down side is I'm spoiled with how wide the aperture can get with my prime, so adjusting for low light was expected.
Excerpt: This lens is a replacement for one that came with the camera and that was damaged. Now that I have this lens again, it reminds me how important it is to frame some shots that are wider angle and closer to usual human range of perception. Also, it requires me to be more patient to get closer to wild creatures in nature--my favorite subject. As a teacher, also, this lens helps me to share the world in a way that more closely frames nature as we often see it.
Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Strong Construction
