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!
Pros:Very quiet, effective stabilizer, light weight, very good value for money.
Cons:Plastic bayonet, used materials and usual absence of the lens hood.
Opinion:Bought in kit with Canon 100d, ridiculous additional expense. I was expecting a bottle bottom and instead I was surprised at positive. It is a more than discreet optics and for the price I paid I can not really talk about it badly, I also bought a compatible lens hood I thought I would resell it right away! I also like the colors and with the lens profile of Lightroom the distortion in good part corrects itself. Only pity for the materials usati....ma everything you can not have!
Pros:Weight, sharpness, fast, quiet af, af interior, full time manual focus rn
Cons:No end manual focus race, like all the STM. It's a 18-55, then it will never be taken seriously, otherwise, given the price, no cons.
Opinion:L I got to replace an old 18-55 unregulated, mounted just thought it was broken, no noise, no barrel revolved in focus, when I found it worked ... Wow. rnNon is usually the bottom of the bottle, despite the plastic looks solid, the sharpness is good and the stabilizer works great. It is an excellent companion for traveling outputs without special needs, the zoom range can be used in many situations. rnTutto this without considering that it costs a hundred Euros !!
