Cheap lens = cheap photos!

AdvantagesWorst lens for a professional but good to start out with; cheap; easy to learn with;

DisadvantagesWorst lens for a pro, frontal element rotates,

"...level camera body like 400D Canon EOS, this lens comes with the body to form the basic kit lens. As far as I know, you cannot purchase this lens officially with its boxes and such, you can buy one off Ebay for a reduced price of £50 or so without its boxes. Before purchasing the entire kit, you will have to realise that the lens will have to be replaced very soon as it does not perform as well as its counterparts such as Canon 24-105mm for example. ..."

18-55mm Image Stabiliser Kit Lens

Advantagesvery good optics at 18mm. Image stabilisation works very well. VERY light, VERY cheap,

DisadvantagesSlow Auto Focus, comparatively poor optical quality at longer ranges, looks and feels cheap

"...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 the release of the 450D. The optics had been re-designed improving the resolution, contrast and colour over the old kit lens.

Kitsch Kit Lens

AdvantagesKeeps the dust off the sensor!

DisadvantagesPoor quality. Poor build quality, Poor performance.

"...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 photographic press and at point of sale. This is very evident in the build quality of the lens. It is really quite poor. Very plasticy, extremely light (too light in my opinion) ..." Read review

Canon EF-S 18-55mm Zoom Lens

AdvantagesCheap and light

DisadvantagesGrainy 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 sure you can pick up a cheap one on eBay though (probably removed from a kit package, or being sold due to an upgrade from kit package). I've seen the ..." Read review
