Pros: Light, well built, crisp, fast and quiet AF

Cons: Flare which however is quite manageable

Opinion: I felt very good with this lens, it gave me good results especially in terms of sharpness. Easy to flare, but easily manageable. It has the great value of having a very fast and extremely quiet MAF, so you don't notice and for videos it's perfect. Aberrations of color corrected very well automatically from the room in Jpeg or with Camera Raw. For me it is great, given also the portability and the price. Vote 9

Pros: Assembly, metal bayonet, stabilizer, silent, sharpness, weight, price on used

Cons: Obvious color sketches without correction in the car, resistance to flare not received, Paraluce not supplied (Canon will never learn)

Opinion: Bought used for less than 80th white box so for the price at which I paid it I can not complain much. I go against the current to the other reviews since mine seems to be a good specimen. Construction Would say excellent as the EF-M 22 mm, so almost completely metal (except the inner barrel), solid, light and not too unbalanced on a Canon EOS M100. The internal AF I found it very quiet and fast, at 55 mm you have macro capabilities slightly better than 22 mm, sharpness to f/8 is great on all focal points (as I expect to this diaphragm), sharp center and slightly less edges, at 18 mm and 55 mm at TA I found the center sharp but the edges leave something to be desired, but generally the sharpness I found it decidedly good, just slightly less sharp than the 22 mm. However compared to the 22 mm it has two obvious defects: chromatic sketches on the agenda especially at 18 mm but fortunately easily corrected in the car, has a poor resistance to the flare so it is necessary to use a lampshade (not included obviously because Canon is tacit) which fortunately if it makes him pay little. Effective stabilization I would say: at 18 mm I managed to go down to 1/4s with a slightly noticeable micromove and at 1/8s with zero micromove, while at 55 mm I managed to go down to 1/30s with some micromove and up to 1/40s without micromove all in LV and without external grips. All in all I find it a great zoom optics for its price, better than the "successor" 15-45 mm, general image quality similar to the EF-M 22 mm but with a resistance to flares on the level of indecency, construction and stabilization excellent, let's say that with the prices on the used that you can find (even at 70-80 th) I would say that it is the only native EF-M zoom to buy if you want a native handyman without disturbing the EF zooms.

Pros: Construction, quality / price ratio, compactness

Cons: Being supplied as a kit with EOS-M cameras, it has merits and defects of the category

Opinion: Compact and light in metal (good for hiking or traveling) even if the painting on the rings of the zoom and focus is worn with normal use. Personally I have seen less distortion at 18mm compared to the analogous 18-55 of the EF-S series. Given the price you can close a few eyes, especially if you mean the "philosophy" mirrorless as an alternative to the compact

Pros: Lightweight, constructive quality, stabilized, price

Cons: Sharpness, general optical quality that leaves to be desired

Opinion: I used this lens for 2 years, I used it a little because I did not feel like it: to have a clarity at least acceptable according to my standards, I had to close at least f8. Even though I did not close the sharpness, it always left me a bit disappointed and the picture did not have the quality you would expect. Chromatic aberration on the agenda and average colors. I would not feel like suggesting it, it was one of the reasons that made me sell my Canon Mirrorless system.

Pros: Price of used, good for video, well-built, all-rounder unpretentious.

Cons: Not very clear, we have to work to get acceptable photos, sometimes I have the impression that suffer from back focus, not up to the sensor.

Opinion: As mentioned in another review, we need to find the right conditions because the objective is able to turn out satisfactory photo. Considered the price to be used and bearing in mind that it is a kit lens you can not complain too much. Let's say, however, that this lens to Tamron 17-50 f2.8 smooth there is a huge difference .... completely another planet! .... By comparison the Tamron looks like a series L !!! It's fine to carry around for photos from "landing" that is, "much of the heap." Rating: 1/2 6 photos, video 7.
