I just got the SL1. I'm ...


from Maine

I just got the SL1. I'm planning a trip to Alaska and wanted to have a camera that would allow me to change lens. I have the 18-55 and the 55-250 lens and it seems to work super with both lens. I would like a bigger telephoto lens but the prices are totally out of my range. The SL1 is easy and understandable for a novice like myself.


meets expectations


from Portland, or  -  Photo Enthusiast

My kit lens for my Canon T3i was damaged by a fall. This lens is a replacement. It has IS, which my original didn't. My first is lens and as I am in my 80's is welcom indeed

from East Tennessee

T3i purchased after long consideration given to cost and options...Best choice in a camera for this 45 year plus career photographer among the last four digital purchased.

Throw away lens I should have waited


from Walhalla, SC

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.


So Happy I did


from Botkinburg,Arkansas

Just by others reviews alone sold me on this camera. I have No regrets!! Takes Beautiful pictures. Having a Lot of Fun with this camera


Nice lense


from Milan, Indiana

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


Good for landscapes, buildings


from Wisconsin

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.


Great low weight lens for daily use.


from Roanoke, VA  -  Photo Enthusiast

Using for a general low weight walk around lens. Have used for portraits, some landscapes.

Kit Lens with a twist


from Irving TX

I ordered this lens for a Canon T4i. The STM was designed for this camera for focusing while filming. The noise created by non STM lenses is horrendous! The noise was eliminates with this lens but thats about it. The auto focus is not as advanced on this camera as the recently released 70D so it didnt benefit me. I'm also not a fan of really light weight lenses so that was a con. I never use the kit lens and since this is simply the kit lens with a twist, it didn't work out for me.


great lens for the price!


from Houston, Texas  -  Casual Photographer

It does job! The focus range provides very good use for indor or the outdor close range photography.
