Pros: Lightness, stabilization, all-rounder

Cons: not very bright, plastic bayonet, not very incisive at high apertures and at the ends of the focal length 18e55, Af not from safety

Opinion: Used in combination with the 70D and a good lens to start exploring the focal lengths a little and to understand what you want to do, the sharpness is not bad if used for landscape photos from the maximum from f6 to f11 on tripod returns good shots, freehand a little less since you have to close to always find something wrong in terms of focus and sharpness. Forget the photos inside, maybe with the mobile are better, in fact one of the reasons that I stopped using it and look at something else and just because during family celebrations, birthdays and various events, the photos were really almost on par with a mid-level smartphone, this is due that being f 3.5 to 18mm rises quickly to 5.6 you have to raise the iso a lot, minimum at 800 (and my 70d does not like to go above 800) or you have to use the flash (which I do not like) so I left it at home more and more often in these events because it became a tribulation to bring in some decent shots, and the decent ones had to work heavily in post to make them worthy of a camera that still has its say. But all this is also normal, over time the need arises for a brighter optics that adapts to more situations ... so thanks to this lens that allowed me to make my bones and thanks to the fact that statistically the 18-55 I used it largely at 24mm for landscapes I took the 24mm f.2.8 pancake, the 50mm f1.8 already I had it and then goodbye optics in kit, more in the if I feel the need for a wide angle take a tokina 11-16 f 2.8 and so on ..

Pros: Lightness, softness of the image, stabilization.

Cons: *Inaccurate Af.

Opinion: As a first lens for those approaching the world of SLRs there is nothing to say, it discreetly does its job and offers more than good shots for the price with which it is sold. The stabilization and lightness play once again in his favor and personally I could add the softness of the image that I could no longer find with the 18-55 is-stm in production since 2013. Unfortunately also for this lens I must point out the defect of the autofocus that tends to blur a part of the frame while focusing endlessly. This problem appears accentuated as the aperture of the diaphragm is increased and is also found in the "new" 18-55 IS-STM and 10-18 IS-STM (see review).

Pros: Used price, focal, weight and footprint, stabilization

Cons: Sharpness, construction, aberrations

Opinion: Assuming that it is an entry level goal, I have been using it for 4 years on a 1200D (entry level as well) and it costs nothing on the used, I would say that it is a great purchase for those who want to start to become familiar with reflex canons. For what it costs in fact does not offer anything less than you can expect, indeed coming from 18-55 not STM I have to say that it is an incredible leap forward, if only for the construction (although the ring of the MF continues to have game) and the autofocus. Let's face it, a pairing 18-55 STM and 1200D is not that it can claim to reach the maximum of quality, but for one who wants to have the "feeling" of the reflex and control over the settings that a normal compact will never offer, it is a nice start, it definitely allows you to get to the top of the parameters and dive slowly into the world of reflex. After 4 years I decided to invest in something more, but I am very satisfied with what gave me this goal, regardless of the time lost in the post to correct the flaws it still has (aberrations and sharpness in the first place). For what it costs and the quality that manages to pull out in good light conditions is a great investment I would say and also serves to understand what is meant by "defect" in photography: aberrations, sharpness, blurred and others are understood better starting from a poorer lens than an L series and allows us to be more careful in the shooting phase to avoid them , at least for my experience

Pros: Economical, stabilized, bright enough, handyman, the AF does not produce noises, lightness, distortion almost nothing at 18mm that on APS-C turns out to be a 29mm approx.

Cons: No end stroke in the ring of the MAF (like all STM I think), is a lens kit base......... has its limits, lacks the lens hood, original costs a quarter of the optics... kinda a paradox

Opinion: There is little to say, to begin with, is a good lens all to do because of the excursion, the lens is bright enough and sharp enough, in my opinion is not at all a bottle bottom as everyone describes it, indeed returns great photos, the Stabilization might not serve, however, in some cases with little light makes it really comfortable and allows you to shoot even at 1/10. As in fact written in the cons, the end of the race, in the MAF is a good hassle, I recommend to mark the infinite fire with a marker

Pros: Lightness, AF practically noise-free, stabilized

Cons: Optical quality a little limited, dark, materials

Opinion: Taken in kit with a Canon 80d, as a first lens is fine, allows you to do almost everything. Very useful especially video side because stabilized and equipped with a precise autofocus and absolutely silent. The materials are plasticosis, at least the bayonet could have put the metal. Absence of even the lens hood but canon does so with all non-L series lenses. Of course there are limits in terms of sharpness and does not shine in terms of blurry but absolutely promoted!
