It's a nice kit lens upgrade Posted by: from: on I upgraded my original 18-55mm to the STM after I fell in love with the STM drive on the 40mm pancake. This upgrade had a number of useful advantages. The all internal focusing is an improvement over the external focusing of the previous model. The manual focusing control is a vast improvement over the previous model. The ability to manually focus when in Auto-focusing mode is worth the upgrade money alone. If you do video, you really want the STM focusing drive. It's very silent and focusing motor noises in a video is really annoying. This eliminates focusing noise while providing fast, accurate auto-focus. The image quality is very close to, if not identical to the previous kit lens. I have a strong preference for prime lenses; because, I demand more control over my depth of field and cannot afford L series lenses. The build quality is reasonable. This is, after all, an inexpensive kit lens. The mount in plastic. This lens will NOT fit on a full frame body. But, if you can afford a full framed body, what are you doing spending money on kit lenses? That doesn't make any sense. In short, the improvements are many and all of them very useful. The limitations of this lens is built into the nature of kit zoom lenses. It's a nice lens. But, because of the nature of zoom lenses, I don't use it that much. But, when I need it... it's there and does a good job. Just don't expect L series performance.

Perfect for Youtube videos Posted by: from: on This is definitely a great buy if you are looking into starting up a youtube channel or just for making plain videos. The focus on this is very clear and its very easy to adjust on the camera or the utility up with canon for your PC. Videos are crisp and clear.
