    As a proud owner of the Canon 80D with the EF-S 24-135mm USM lens I was looking for something to complement my setup. The EF 50mm lens is quite sharp and incredible. The low 1.8 aperture makes for some really clean shots with a very nice bokeh. No it is not the pricier F1.4 version, but it appears just as clean in my shots. Considering it is several stops down from my zoom it really opens up as a nice portrait lens on my cropped sensor camera. The best part is that I can keep it and move up to a full frame camera in the future. Packaged with this is the humble EF-S 10-18mm Ultra Wide zoom. Low aperture in a wide angle is not a HUGE necessity, but it IS a very dark lens. Still the pictures are crisp almost to the edge and with the right lighting conditions it makes a great argument for a lower priced lens. Though both of these lenses feel a bit "cheaper" in the build than the "red ring" lenses, they are fantastic work horses that would find themselves at home in any enthusiast's bag.

    Great deal on two great lenses

    I was shopping for a 10-18mm STM lens, but I had to jump on this package because it was such a good deal. The 10-18mm lens offers a very wide angle, I have read 108 degrees, and while it's a darker lens, it's also very sharp. It's largely inline with the 18-55mm or 55-250mm lens in terms of photo quality, so if you are familiar with those you should know what to expect. These cheaper Canon lenses have came a long way since the original IS lenses and earlier. The 50mm was a pleasant surprise. The aperture on this lens (f/1.8) is low enough to achieve the Bokeh effect on portraits quite easily. If used with an APS-C sensor, the zoom on this lens is an effective 80mm, making it adequate for many macro shots, but also functional enough for most portraits, although for the latter, I would prefer a 40mm lens (although the 40mm lens isn't as wide of an aperture at f/2.8 so I would not recommend it over the 50mm if you can only buy one). In my limited use so far, I find that f/2.8 can still achieve the Bokeh effect quite nicely as well but with a more gradual blur, and seems to be the sweet spot for macro shots.

    Two essential lenses!

    I walked into Best Buy one evening to buy two lenses. Specifically, these two lenses! I wanted a wide angle for landscapes; and everyone who owns a DSLR should own a 50mm lens. I was excited to see this bundle; especially because it was on sale! Even if you own a cropped sensor (or APS-C) camera, the 10-18mm lens still offers a very acceptable wide angle perspective. The "nifty fifty" lens speaks for itself. It's a 'great walking' around lens to have on your camera. In my city, we have several really large summer festivals; this lens is perfect for taking portrait shots of festival visitors and friends. It provides outstanding bokeh for your portrait shots. Also, if you insist on insulting a DSLR by using it for taking selfies, the 50mm is right up your alley. (I regret offering that suggestion...) I gave this bundle four stars because the pricing doesn't save you much money at all if you purchase the lenses separately. But I got it on sale, which made this bundle a no brainer! In any event, if you're a serious photographer, these two lenses should be in your gadget bag.

    The 50mm 1.8 does not disappoint. I had the original fantastic plastic version, but needed another one since my son started shooting. The metal lens mount is a step up and the picture are fantastic. The 10-18mm, though is a bit of a disappointment. First, as other online reviews have noted, it is quite a dark lens. It goes to f5.6 rather quickly and even in the bright sunlight of my island paradise, pics tend to come out under exposed. Shoot RAW if the shot really matters. Also, there's a lot of distortion on both ends of the zoom. When shooting video, you get an almost fisheye perspective while panning. Overall I'd say it's a fun lens to have, but not a great one.

    Best Value for the Two Travel lenses

    The Canon EF 50mm f1.8 Stm is a very sharp lens. I am using this one for flower photography and for portraiture. It's not the fastest lens but I am amazed how sharp the eyes of a subject could be even when being cropped! It's a little bit tricky though when using it to photograph flowers because of the shallow depth of field. But I always look at the LCD screen(zoom in) to review the in focus area. The Canon EF s 10-18mm IS Stm is a very a good lens too. I am using it for street and landscape photography. It's not the sharpest lens but it's good enough knowing the price is very cheap. And I am so happy with the way it performs during daylight, the IS serves me well. At night, as long as I am using tripod or with the steady hand, I can still get sharp images. For the price of both lenses amounting to $ 319.99 plus tax, it is the best package deal lenses available!

    The build quality of these two Canon lenses is fantastic. They are smooth and sturdy. The glass is clear and produces great results. For the price these are a great upgrade from the dual kit lenses I have for my T6. The focus ring is very sensitive but mostly for the wide angle lens, I have noticed it is either needing to be focused almost all the way in one direction or the other but once your on pretty much on it you can see how sharp these lenses are especially in comparison to kit lenses. The focus ring is super smooth when using in manual. If using in autofocus it’s fairly quick and to me not overly noisy.

    So this product was recommended. The EF-S lens does not fit on my 6D Mark III camera because it is for a crop sensor camera and not a full frame camera. Why they recommended this is beyond me. I have never had a full frame camera and this is my first but given that they recommended it I figured it was a good buy. I was sorry mistaken as I tried to put the lens on and it wouldn't fit. Now I can buy an extender tube to convert it however, that is another $100 or more and it will leave a ring around the entire picture.

    I know that there are better lenses out there. But I am just starting out and do not have the money for the high end versions. I was looking for a wide angle lens that would get the shot and not break the bank. When I found this combo pack at BB I couldn't pass it up. I will say that it was a great value. Pictures are good on the 10-18 but I have not used the 50 for more than a few pictures at a wedding. The 10-18 is great for vlogging either on a tripod or holding the camera. I wold recommend this to anyone who wants a good lens kit but wants to save even more money.

    I absolutely love this lens kit! I was looking for a wide angle lens for beach photos, and boy am I impressed! The 10-18mm lens is perfect for grasping the entire area, without standing a mile away. The 50mm lens is great for taking pictures of my 1 year old niece and 2 year old nephew, it's perfect for those up close and personal portraits, and great for adjusting your aperture. Overall, I would highly recommend this kit to any photographer. It's a great start to your kit, and very helpful when you're trying to get that perfect image!

    The wide angle is nice for inside group pictures, or architecture. The lens aperture is high, but with modern ISOs, that's not as big of a problem with taking simple family shots. It has a little distortion, and feathering around the edges, but that is as expected with a wide angle approaching fisheye. I've had several 50mm primes over the years, and it's a excellent lens. Perfect for portrait, or shooting at low aperture to achieve depth of field blur.

    Two lens for the cost of one basically, sign me up. At first I questioned whether or not I should get this or just the 50mm f/1.4 but was told 1.8 is enough unless shooting in low light and the 10-18 is an ideal vlogging lens (not my cup of tea as I prefer the 24mm f2.8) but the wide angle lens excels at landscape photographing. Living near the water I find myself taking more landscape photos now than I did before I picked this product up. Definitely worth it!

    I was looking at getting the 10mm-18mm when a sales person told me about this bundle deal. I had planned on getting a 50mm 2.5 macro lens but once I saw this deal I figured I'd give it a shot and just get the 2.5 if I want in the future. I love this bundle as makes the 50mm more like $70 instead of $125-ish. The price is worth it and these are some pretty nice lenses too!

    I bought this kit because I wanted to have a wide angle lens. The 10-18 is an adequate wide angle for an APS-c sensor. I use it on my 7D, it is still a little soft and requires some adjustment to get the focus correct. The 50mm is actually a nice little lens and performs well. Not quite L quality but a good value lens. Overall 2 decent lenses worth the price. If you just need the 50mm you can get it alone for cheaper. There may be better wide angle options, but I will keep it.

    This combination of two budget-friendly quality lenses are the perfect new addition to your Canon arsenal. The "nifty fifty" is an iconic peice of glass every photographer needs for pro-looking portraits with blurred background. Plus the super-wide angle 10-18mm really pulls in a lot of real estate for those gorgeous landscapes or even those tight all-encompassing indoor room shots. All this at a combo price that is quite affordable.

    This lens should be used mostly at 10mm when there isn't much light. This will give you a 35mm equivalent of 16.2mm since you can only use this lens with a Canon crop body. I found that if you want to take a photo at 18 mm just use the 18-55mm f/4-5.6 instead of this lens. The lens provides a decent value. The EF 50 mm f/1.8 is invaluable and will be the best value lens of your collection.

    Best arsenal of Canon Lenses at a bundled price

    These are BASIC lenses for Canon DSLR cameras - whether you are an experienced or novice photographer. I had a complete set of lenses for my previous Canon DSLR that was stolen out of my vehicle. Had saved up and bought lenses for my design/photography business. I was crushed at the theft. Finally replaced camera with a Canon EOS 70D (love it), and these 2 lenses rounded out my "must have" in camera bag. Great price for the bundle!

    Great price but you get what you pay for. I don't mind the cheap body of the two lenses but I think the glass could have been a little better. The 10-18mm has to much distortion, un able to correct in post editing. Would have come out better just buying the 50mm by itself and spending a little extra for a better wide angle lens.

    10-18mm IS : If you love shooting landscapes and travel a lot this lens is a must buy. Its sharp and the STM and IS are a nice bonus for the price. The 50mm STM lens is well built compared to the previous version and is sharp wide open. Tiny little low light beast.

    I HIGHLY recommend getting this kit. I saved over $500 and the lenses are spectacular. I just started out as a professional photographer and have the standard lenses but these have blown me away. These lenses and a canon 70d are the way to go. These are amazing and were such a great price. One goes for $300 and the other goes for $500...why wouldn't you get both for a less price? I wish I could give this 10 stars.

    I am always been a fan of wide-angle lenses when touring museums or aircraft on display getting a lot in one picture while close up this lens did a good job focusing and produced excellent pictures. The 50mm lens that came with it I have not used yet but I see myself doing it for very low light situations. I wish the 50 was image stabilized but for that price I guess I can't complain
