Not what I thought

Anna Murrow, Amazon
7 February 2014
  • Summary: This is the standard lens that comes in most Canon kits. Based on the description, I thought it was a something else. The lens is fine and does what it should but just not the lens I thought it was.

Good but not great Lens

Gary S., Amazon
30 October 2012
  • Summary: For an all-around lens, the Sigma 18-50mm is not bad. My biggest complaint is that you can't really get 18mm wide angle. The lens casing prevents that. When you open it all the way to 18mm, the end of the lens casing shows up in all the photographs, effectively cropping the image so that it is...

Read Carefully

  • Summary: I misread the specs on this lens and ended up buying a lens I already had. This is NOT a wide angle lens, this is a standard lens. I'm not mad at the seller, I just hope that they'll update the title for this item, and hopefully they'll let me exchange this lens for what I was actually wanting.

Don't expect a Canon quality.

  • Summary: This is lens is just average, don't expect it to perform like a Canon. Picture quality is average, better with good flash. Construction is also average, manual focusing ring is too sensitive and auto focusing is not that bad. Again don't expect it to take good picture on fast action or at dim light.

Nice lens for the price

  • Summary: I got this lens for my new Canon 7D, as somewhat of a filler lens till I got another one, but for being less than $100 it worked like a charm, even shot a video on it, vignettes on the 50mm side, but what can you ask for for such a cheap lens

Not so sharp, but brighter

  • Summary: Im kinda torn with my opinion of this lens. the positives are its built very well, looks great, quick and silent focus and 2.8 at the wide end. The bad points - at the wide end the distorion at higher aperture is really quite bad.

Marmite

  • Summary: I bought this along time ago to replace a broken kit lens for my D5100 , It is a nice lens to have , Image quality is nice and build quality matches . But after using this lens for a while i would say that the nikon 18-55 lens is a lot sharper and renders colours better , It can also focus closer .

  • Excerpt: Для любительских фоток летом на улице вполне, но вечером или в темное помещение с таким лучше не соваться
  • Pros: Внутреннее зумирование и фокусировка -- никаких выпадающих хоботов. Надежная конструкция механических частей: резинка фокуса немного отклеилась только через год активного (!) использования объектива.
  • Cons: Мыльный. Нормальная резкость начинается где-то в районе F7.1 ; Желтый. Неплохо так желтит.

Optisch gut, hat aber nicht lange gehalten

  • Summary: Optisch makelloses Objektiv, macht wirklich sehr gute Aufnahmen, allerdings gab nach 3 Jahren der Autofokus ohne Fremdeinwirkung den Geist auf.

  • Excerpt: Если менять кит на это - тогда не стоит. По сравнению с китом то он в 2 раза дороже, а разницы мало. Свой же я сдам на юстировку.
  • Pros: Конструктив, не вращается передняя линза. Нет выезжающего хобота. Внешний вид.
  • Cons: Резкость, разницы между ним и китовым не заметил. Иногда даже кажется что кит резче. ; Диаметр светофильтра 67 мм, что уже прибавляет к стоимости 500-1000 лишних рублей. ; Малый и слишком легкий ход фокусировочного кольца. ; Мне лично, попался довольно странный экземпляр. Если сбить фокус до н...
