Quality to price ratio is excellent
Very good quality images
Very nice wide angle
Cons 'Flimsy' zoom ring
Moving focus ring
Slightly slow focusing
Zoom strength falls short about 30% of the time
No lens hood included, lens cover is rather easy to fall off
Summary Overall I believe this lens provides a lot of features for it's cost. The image stabilization is very good and the overall picture quality is excellent.
Although just like several other Canon lenses, the kit does not provide a lens hood.
I also found that the lens cover is quite small and sloppy. The lens can be quite easily taken off the lens which exposes the lens to scratches.
I highly recommend this kit lens for a beginner photography (such as me) in DSLR photography.
Pros Nice sharp image.
Cons Delicate construction
Summary I purchased this lens and after three weeks light usage the Focus Mode Switch/Image Stabiliser Switch housing became detached from the lens body and was lost. The lens is at present being examined by Canon with a view to repairing it if possible. Disappointing for a new product. They should have given me a new one as a replacement.
Thanks for your submission!
