Not what I thought

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.
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...
Summary: Am just an amateur and picked up a T4i with the 40mm pancake lens a few months ago. Thought this would be a better all purpose lens than a stock Canon 18-55mm. Read many reviews and took a chance on this one. Sample photo quality so far is more than adequate for my purpose with good true colors.
Not bad as a replacement kit lens, but don't expect too much

Summary: After reading some of the other reviews, I've concluded that I got one of the 'soft' lenses...meaning that the majority of the time, images don't turn out as clear as they do/did with the Canon kit lens. But, honestly, what do you expect for $200 glass?
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.
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.
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
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.
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 .
