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.

Some issues

Monte Goode, Amazon
26 February 2013
  • Summary: A good lens, however. Have had several occasions when the lens stops communicating with my 50d body. I have to turn off the camera, remove the lens and reattach.

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...

Not bad as a replacement kit lens, but don't expect too much

Steven Seagraves Jr. "Seagraves", Amazon

  • 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?

Read Carefully

Joshlyn, Amazon

  • 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.

sza319, Amazon
21 December 2010
  • 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

Zachary A. Crosby, Amazon

  • 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

gman, Amazon

  • 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

Ryan A. Sutton "KING rye", Amazon
20 June 2010
  • 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 .

Optisch gut, hat aber nicht lange gehalten

Trautman, Amazon

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