      General Use Lens

      Replacing the original lens that came with my Canon Rebel. Not necessarily a specialty lens, more for general occasions. Does not have large aperture capability, and will this result in having to use slower shutter speeds (blurred images), but if you have great lighting and a steady hand (or tripod) then there is no need to worry about that. Great for everyday use.

      The newer, improved STM lens is worth it

      The IS II lens made some nice improvements over the original 18-55mm IS lens, but the newer STM lens is notably sharper, with quicker focus. It is also silent. It's worth the extra money. I would only not recommend this lens because the improved STM lens exists.

      Genuine Canon lens with factory paperwork in a photo finish factory box. This is a great lens, quiet on focus and famous Canon optics. Bought this to replace one I had literally used up. More than twenty thousand photos on auto focus before I needed to replace.

      I purchased this lense to replace a similar product. We liked the quality of picture that it took and did not cost much. Although it is not a professional grade lense, we did not need anything special. We use this lense to take photos of our kids as they grow up. Works well.

      The lens does what it is meant to do and performs as expected. It is as the title says, a replacement for the original. It is for a beginner and maybe (stretching it) for an itermediate photographer. For an inexpensive lens it is great.

      Salesperson was awesome and really helped me with my purchase of a camera lens. He showed me all the options I had available to me and made sure it fit my camera. I would highly recommend Best buy in Wichita Falls, Texas. We have enjoyed everything we have purchased at there.

      The quality of the lens is superb. I have purchased more high-end lenses in the past and cannot tell the difference between the pictures taken with this lens versus the more expensive one.

      I'm not a technical photographic wizard, but I know what I like. This is the lens I use the most, and it gives me wonderful, sharp, well-lighted photos. I am content.
