Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 Lens Review (Video)

Warning: As shown in the video, I replaced this lens with one of Canon's top notch L-model lenses. The information provided in the video and video description may be slightly biased as the L-model works a lot better and gives a way better quality than this lens.

The Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 Lens is a great entry level lens for both entry level photographers and amateur photographers. The lens is light and compact and is made of plastic and glass. This is one of Canon's cheapest lenses and is usually bundled with some DSLR bundles. The lens gives off great photo quality for the price and would satisfy any amateur or entry level photographers.

  • Light weight
  • Cheap
  • Has image stabilizer
  • Fairly good photo quality for the price
  • Not as sharp as L-models (Canon's elite lenses)
  • Chromatic Aberration at non-center
  • Aperture changes as you zoom
  • Front of the lens moves (not good for polarizers)
  • No distance window
  • Micro-motor focus (loud)
  • Light fall off at wide aperture
  • EF-S mount not compatible with some cameras
