“Cheap lens = cheap photos!”

ConsWorst lens for a pro, frontal element rotates,

Must make this clear that it is the older version of 18-55mm before they upgraded it to fit the 450D and above. So 400D and below. When starting out in photography; most people get entry level camera body like 400D Canon EOS, this lens comes with the body to form the basic kit lens. As far as I...

“Kitsch Kit Lens”

ProKeeps the dust off the sensor!

ConsPoor quality. Poor build quality, Poor performance...

I have both purchased and won several entry level Canon DSLR's, each of which have been furnished with this 'kit' lens. It is quite obviously the result of cost-cutting exercises at Canon in an effort to keep a headline grabbing low prices for the camera/lens combinations as advertised in the...

“Canon EF-S 18-55mm Zoom Lens”

published 14/06/2008

ProCheap and light

ConsGrainy photo quality, low zoom

I recently purchased a sweet Canon 400D/XTi Rebel from Amazon.co.uk (£45 cashback!) and this standard zoom lens (Canon EF-S 18-55mm) came with it. As far as I know, you cannot purchase the Canon EF-S 18-5mm on it's own, as it's designed specifically to be sold with the 400D/XTi Rebel package. I'm...

Product Information : Canon EF-S zoom lens - 18 mm - 55 mm F/3.5-5.6 for Canon EF-S

Manufacturer's product description

Compact and affordable, the EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS is the ideal general-purpose standard zoom. Its 4-stop Image Stabilizer provides great performance in low light conditions. The EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS is a high-quality, standard zoom lens that will appeal to photographers who prefer to travel light. With a focal length equivalent of 29-88mm in 35mm format, the lens' wide zoom range is suitable for most general photography. For close-up work, auto focus continues to work at distances of just 0.25m (25cm) throughout the zoom range. To minimize risk of image blur, the EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS incorporates Canon's latest 4-stop compensation Image Stabilizer technology. This allows photographers to use shutter speeds up to 4 times slower with no perceptible increase in image blur - ideal for shooting in low light. As well as ensuring true color balance and sharp, high contrast images, Super Spectra coatings combat ghosting and flare by absorbing light reflecting off digital camera sensors or internal lens elements. An aspherical lens element delivers crisp, high contrast images even with the aperture fully opened.
