    Great lens for its size

    This is great lens to carry and use for some quick shots when you don't want to carry your heavy zoom lens and convert your DSLR to a semi point and shoot camera. Good build quality and image at this price range. Only negative is the hard to use manual focus and slow auto focus.

    This is a perfect lens when it works. But occasionally the auto focus does not work. The quick fix is to release it and then lock it back in place. Still, it's a huge inconvenience.

    First off, I am somewhat of a DS:R beginner, and this lens is pretty simple. Bought this just to pair with my already small Rebel SL1 crop body, and I love the portability. Even with a protruding filter on it, the lens is still low profile. Build seems solid despite it being plastic. Mount is metal, and goes on body with a tight but snug fit. Thin focus ring is made of textured rubber, and feels smooth but not loose. Image quality is pretty impressive. GREAT bokeh can be achieved. This is not a macro lens, but I am able to take beautiful shots from about 8 inches away from subject. However at this close range, I have to use manual focus, as auto will not pick it up. Speaking of which, auto focus is rather slow, so not really a good lens for action shots. Because of size and portability, this lens is great for a "walkaround" lens. I bring this lens mounted on my SL1 almost everywhere I go, and snap away using only one hand like its a point and shoot!
