Reviews - Canon EF-S zoom lens - 18 mm - 55 mm F/3.5-5.6 for Canon EF-S

From £ 100.05

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...

The previous reviews for this item seem to be for the "old" kit lens. The item reviewed here is the Image stabilised version of this lens. It is the kit lens for the Canon EOS 450D. This is one of the most under-rated EFS lenses canon makes. The Image Stabilisation was added to the kit lens with...

“Canon EF-S 18-55mm Zoom Lens”

published 14/06/2008

Cheap and light

Grainy 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...
