Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Zoom Lens for Canon SLR Cameras



In response to demands of photographers, this standard zoom lens is designed with Canon’s Optical Image Stabilizer technology while retaining the compactness and lightness of previous models. Its stabilization allows sharp hand-held shots at shutter speeds up to four stops slower than otherwise possible. It consists of 11 elements in 9 groups and uses an Aspherical lens element to correct aberration for excellent image quality throughout the zoom range and a circular aperture for exquisite rendering of out-of-focus backgrounds. Without a lot of size, weight or cost, this lens expands picture-taking possibilities any time slow shutter speeds are needed.

    An okay lens for the beginner but maybe get the 50mm it’s better IMO, February 8, 2014

    This review is from: Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Zoom Lens for Canon SLR Cameras (Accessory)
    I want to start out by saying that this is a pretty decent bi for a new photographer. And at just over $100 at the time of writing this review you can’t go wrong if you want to practice with a wide-angle lens. But I might recommend trying the 50mm “Nifty fifty” lens located here: Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II Standard AutoFocus Lens – Gray Market

    Now my reasoning for this. Basically most photographers and especially new photographers don’t need an 18mm lens and to me zoom lenses sacrifice a lot over fixed zoom lenses. Now the 50mm that I linked to above has a really low f-stop and if you read on in this review I’ll explain what n f-stop is and how it works. But I think it’s lower f-stop will help many more beginning photographers create better photographs than having an 18mm to 55mm zoom will.

    With both of these lenses you’re not getting great glass (the glass quality is what really sets cheap lenses apart from higher-quality lenses) I mean it’s good though for learning the basics of photography. But I think of this learned so much more by using the 50mm lens over this lens and it costs about $10 less.

    ***You should always buy a UV filter to protect the glass. This in my opinion is the one thing everybody who purchases an expensive lens should do. UV filters don’t affect the photographs you take but it’s a layer of plastic between the scratchable glass and the world around you. It’s a MUST BUY. They are well worth the $10 you pay for the layer security.***

    Here I’ll explain how the f-stop or aperture priority works on digital SLR cameras. Basically the aperture is a circle inside the lens that as you go up in your f-stop from F4 to F4.8 to F5.6 and beyond it shrinks the size of this circle in the lens. The shrinking of the circle from a higher f-stop allows less light to pass through to the sensor. The lower the f-stop i.e. F4 allows you to shoot at faster shutter speeds in low light situations because the circle in the lens allows more light to pass through because of the lower aperture. Now the way soon lenses work if you notice this lens says F-3.5-5.6 these are the lowest f-stops you can set at lowest zoom and maximum zoom. So when your lenses at 18mm your lowest f-stop on this lens is F3.5 but when you’re zoomed all the way in at 55mm your lowest f-stop is 5.6. You need to be conscious of this when setting your shutter speeds if you’re doing it all manually (which I recommend doing)

    Now I know many people will probably shoot holes in the foregoing explanation of f-stop but I’m not a really advanced photographer but I get how shutter speed and aperture priority work with each other. I recommend working with your camera in manual mode and adjusting the shutter speed and aperture you will learn so much more about taking good photographs if you do. Below is a step-by-step instruction on how you should practice so you can see how shutter speed and aperture work together.

    Here’s what I recommend that you do:
    1. Enable manual mode on your camera this mode allows you to set both the aperture for the lens a.k.a. the f-stop and the shutter speed a.k.a. how long the shutter is opened while taking a photograph.
    2. Zoom all the way out to 18mm and drop the aperture or f-stop to F3.5 on this lens
    3. Set your shutter speed to 1/60 of a second
    4. Take a picture
    5. Look at your photograph notice how much is dark and light about it how sharp it is etc.
    6. Go up to the next shutter speed 1/90th of the second or 1/125 and take another photograph.
    7. now compare both of the photographs you took
    8. to change the shutter speed again going up another step taken other photograph now compare all three photographs

    If you continue to do this adjust shutter speed while knowing what your aperture is you’re going to notice how shutter speed affects the lighting of your photographs all you need to do then is start changing your aperture and repeat the process of stepping through your shutter speeds eventually you’ll understand how the aperture works in correlation with shutter speed. I became a proficient photographer using manual controls in less than a month just by doing this simple practice. I would recommend starting outdoors on a well lit day because then you will see how you can adjust your aperture and your shutter speeds to really make good photographs. also I recommend starting outside on a bright day because shooting at F4 indoors without good lighting does not result usually in a good photograph.

    If you have any questions feel free to leave a question here and I’ll get back to you.

    Thanks for reading

    I really needed this lens for confined spaces. You can capture an entire wall only standing just a few feet away. Good quality and packaged very well. I recommend this product.
