Pros: very high price performance ratio, has a resolution that has nothing to envy of much more expensive lenses and quoted.

Cons: The quality of materials is unsatisfactory, high vignetting.

Opinion: As you can see from the photos that follow the quality of this lens is sorprendente.rnQuando I bought my first digital SLR (40D) in kit I had this obiettivo.rnPer few months I have always photographed with it and I must say that some beautiful photos I brought in my opinion casa.rnA sometimes in kit targets are judged with ........ rnTanto superficiality as an example according to the Photozone reviews, this lens has a quality equal to Canon 10- 22 and the Canon 15-85 ........

Pros: Weight - Operating and af stabilizer

Cons: Build quality embarrassing - a bit of vignetting too

Opinion: we say that this point in my opinion is the minimum wage to have to make much of a girlfriend as beautiful foto.rnNon optical performance but overall is acceptable. Bokeh edgy and nervous. Chromatic aberrations present especially towards the edges, but not exaggerated. AF precise, rather quiet and stabilizer actually useful to compensate for low light (in low light ... otherwise I never use it) .rnLa build quality is poor (but is not superior to the old), on the other hand cluttered and weighs less than zero, and you can mistreat much as you want without fear of damaging expensive optics, so he will always work.

Pros: Price - Weight - Stabilizer - Sharpness

Cons: Chromatic aberrations - Autofocus Loud - Constructive Quality

Opinion: Received in Bundle with my 1000D in Kit, we've spent together 5 years! before abandoning it in the closet, and I must say that I got a lot of satisfaction especially at the beginning, where you do not have special needs, many underestimate it because overall it was "the training ship" of all canonists, true that after a while we get tired and you look for new sources of inspiration, but I must say that I also had the opportunity to compare the various Tamron 17-50, and the yield of the finished image was equal or nearly so before storing it in the closet I would open some good book of photography and I would try to exploit properly the "plasticotto" and then maybe you think with what to replace, but suffers from chromatic aberration is all recoverable PP, autofocus is not, however, with both ultrasonic liveview viewfinder that did not give me never accuracy problems, while it is a bit noisy, the focus ring is unwieldy and has no distance scale, the stabilizer performs well both in video than in the pictures, overall I would recommend this tonte to those who want to bring the world of photography with a body entry level without fainting economically.

Pros: Economic

Cons: Economical in every sense - Makes the most of the interior - Sharpness - Focus ring unworthy - AF noisy and inaccurate - With the brightness degrades performance - IS not entirely satisfactory

Opinion: I bought it in kit with my 450D that I use currently. Until time of purchase on the remote 55-250 II it is thought acceptable, I would have given a 6 even though there were more times that gave me the bad results that good, but compared with the paintings was downgraded by my to 5.'m so unhappy that I decided to replace it with the Canon EF-S 18-55 mm F/3.5-5.6 IS STM hope as the reviews report that gives a minimum of leap in terms of performance and sharpness. Do not recommend it to anyone who owns a camera body whose resolution exceeds 10 Mpx.

Pros: Price, size, stabilized, 55mm good ability portrait of APSC.

Cons: is an f / 4 - f/5.6 then not very bright, not very distinct, f slow and most times inaccurate, materials plasticky, uncomfortable manual focus ring is too thin.

Opinion: Objective purchased in a kit with my camera, that is what it costs and do not be surprised lightness and plasticosità materials. Despite the use that I do, mainly in the studio (Food and Still life) and then manual focus, most of the time is not very clear. For a detail satisfactory to the best of f / 8. Bokeh is not exceptional as not going well down the backlight. The autofocus is loud, unsure and uncertain, the image stabilizer, always using a tripod, do not actually have seen its effectiveness. Jerky zoom ring (problem improved in the second generation). The focal range is quite useful on APSC good angle though not very thorough, to the maximum focal length 55mm has a good ability portrait. I personally used as a "gym" workout when I introduced into SLR photography and is still in service for all the images that I uploaded here on JuzaPhoto. Goal that gives me some satisfaction tuttosommato provided it is used "in the manual". Recommended instead for the price.
