Summary: The Canon products are wonderful, but the off brand of the smaller lenses, and all the accessories suck. They are cheaply made and don't really fit onto the camera like they should. I suggest the carmera be bought seperate from all the accessories.
Summary: Deal-Expo advertising is false. The package I ordered/received stated all lenses were IS STM at the top of the page description. Other items were either missing or different than pictured or described: EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Lens is actually an IS II Lens (non-STM) EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS...
Excerpt: I purchased this lens a few weeks ago and have used it at one big event. I was impressed with the handheld images I was able to get during an outdoor, late afternoon wedding. The autofocus is silent; it's also quick while on static subjects.
i like the lens but the first one i ordered was defective.

Summary: im not sure what happened but the lens I ordered did not work 100% of the time. i am sending it back and hopefully the next one they send me will work properly. I cant even really explain the issue.
Summary: I received this lens as a gift. Of course that means nothing since I specified it. Here are some of the issues I've discovered: 1. I understand other reviewer's concern with the plastic filter threads, and I have placed a Tiffen 58mm METAL UV filter on the lens for protection. 2.
Summary: I bought this lens last year and used it for a while. The pictures I got were pretty decent, and the Image Stabilization works well, but after a few months I found I was favoring other lenses. This one is currently resting in a lens bag in a drawer and isn't likely to come out anytime soon.
