exp EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II

I gave the kit lens 1 star simply because I had little use for this lens. This is the kit lens: EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II. This would be better: Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II Camera Lens + this hood: Zeikos ZE-LH52 52mm Soft Rubber Lens Hood (Black). Yes, BOTH are cheap lenses but it is more useful than the kit lens, for me. I shoot more kids, family, portraits, etc. & the bokeh is great, This is just my 2 cents. I had more use from the nifty fifty & T2i in 2 weeks than 2 months with the kit lens...

Throw away lens I should have waited

By

The lens was included with a kit and is no longer included with the T4i kits with good reason! If I knew how poorly it was built and noisy it was (useless shooting video unless you use a external mic) yes it's loud might as well shoot video next to a passing freight train, as for the build I have never seen anything made by Canon built so cheap! I though it was a counterfeit lens at first until I read others reviews if I knew canon was going to remove it from the kit and replace it with a STM version I would have waited! I had to buy a new STM lens to shoot video, I don't know what Canon was thinking when they included this piece of plastic pretending to be a Lens.

Nice lense

I'm still learning how to use this lens but I'm very pleased with it.

Good for landscapes, buildings

By

Good all-around general purpose lens, versatile enough for many situations. Relatively light weight. Good for a walk in the woods because it can capture a decent wide-angle landscape shot, yet still take a great close-up photo of an object along the trail, such as a flower. Limited zoom means it cannot get a close-up of distant wildlife, so if that's your target, you will need to consider a different lens. This lens works great for fitting buildings into the frame when standing close. I have taken some beautiful night shots of cityscapes with this lens using a tripod and long exposure.

My Wide Variety Lens

By

I really love this lens, and I use it for a wide variety of shooting options. On Easter Day, I couldn't have shot my family portraits without this lens. I currently own a Telephoto Lens EFS 55-250, one Prime Lens EF 50mm 1.4, and The EFS 18-55 lens. I couldn't use The Telephoto Lens, and The Prime Lens posed to many challenges for wide portraits. I am so happy with this lens. It is the one lens I used the most. At a price of 199.99 it was the least expensive out of the lens that I currently own. I highly recommend this compact lens for any amateur, to intermediate photographer who wants to grab one lens and go.

Nice Lens For The Money

By

This lens makes a nice lens for the money. It's not the fastest lens but for the money it's a good lens to use for general photography in the standard focal length range.

Questions about this item:

Jessica K  Will this fit my Canon Rebel T1i camera?
DENISE C  It interchanges with my T3i and my 7D so it should work on the T1i.
Jessica K  Thank you!
khaled n  heloo What are the suitable camra fof this lean ?
STEPHEN D S  This lens is a real bargain for quality of images. It is not as robust or well sealed as a regular Canon lens, and certainly falls short of the L series lenses. However, for the price, and if you do not need poster-sized images, it is great. It is also a wonderfully light traveler's lens. It fits all later Canon cameras with a "c" sized sensor (T-series and D-series from 40D on up). It will not fit any camera with a full-sized sensor.
Tom B  I have an older cannon rebel xt and broke my lens, will this lens fit my camera?
PAUL H  My rebel is 9 years old and the lens you asked about works fine.
