A perfect entry level macro lens

Advantages: Fantastic, clean, sharp images, good build quality, almost silent AF
Disadvantages: I wish I'd have bought the 100mm!

...I purchased this lens as I started to become more and more interested in photographing bugs and insects close up. I decided on the this lens because it was the cheapest that Canon offered. The 100mm lens was £100 more (£460) so thought I'd rather bu ...

Canon EF-S 18-55mm Zoom Lens
