The Canon products are wonderful, but the off brand of the smaller lenses

Nichola Johnson, Amazon

  • 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.

My newest Canon purchase

ESM79, B&H Photo
4 September 2014
  • 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.

  • Summary: Auto focus was terrible on the one I purchased, optically the lens was great. I ended up returning the one I bought, but if autofocus is not important I would definitely recommend.

  • Summary: I did not know that this was a grey market product. When I received the lens the box was already opened and ripped and I did not trust that this was a new product.

Good entry level to IS telephoto zoom lenses

  • 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.

Okay lens, good value for money, but...

Craig Dickson, Amazon
17 June 2009
  • 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.
