NOT BAD...love it...However, auto focus sometimes acts up and have to manual focus which don't get as nice of pictures....This is a good zoom for beggining.Good image quality in outdoors.Best if used with a tripod or monopod.There is no image stablizer so the futher you zoom the steadier the camera has to be.On the plus side with it being an EF lens you can buy an inexpensive teleconverter and double your zoom.All in all a good lens for being part of a package.

I loved...Love it...Its ultrasonic autofocus motor (USM) enables fast, smooth and silent autofocus action and full-time manual focus override allows for the precision of manual focus even in One Shot AF mode....The quality and the extra light you get from this lense , makes it worth for me expending the extra money , very easy to use and makes your DSLR look like a more regular camera instead of having a huge lense when you are being a tourist , love the rear glare (main reason why I got it) even taking regular pictures works great!Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM Standard Lens: This Canon 50mm lens has an unusually large maximum aperture so you can get detailed pictures even in low light without needing a flash.

Love it...Love it!...The lens offers AF and manual focus, and allows manual focus even when AF is set to on, a very useful feature for low-light and other challenging focus situations....It's light enough that you can shoot for quite a while before fatigue sets in, an issue that will rear its head in any situation that goes on a while, like a wedding or a play (and that low-light capability is great for stage work, where a flash annoys literally everyone.Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 USM Medium Telephoto Lens: Get sharp, clear photos with this Canon medium telephoto lens that delivers vibrant color and clarity with fast, quiet focusing.

Love it...worth it...I'm very happy with the feature set of focus limiter, AF/MF override, image stabilization which works really well in tandem with the in body OIS, and the manual focus lock (although I'd prefer a toggle switch as compared to holding the button down)....The optics and image quality are stellar for what you pay for this lens but be careful with low lighting situations as this lens can suffer a bit without a tripod (you'll still get the shot but don't have high hopes for the 100% crop).Get a little closer to your subject with this Sony 70-300mm lens.

nice !...Love it...If you are using manual focus this isn't a problem, but in auto focus the lens sometimes will focus on the object next to or just behind where I am trying to get the picture and it isn't noticeable until you upload the pictures on the computer....Shooting an objects such as a coyote from a long distance or a praying mantis as an extreme close up, this lens doesn't disappoint .Snap sharp, vibrant photos at a distance with this Canon EF-S 8546B002 telephoto lens, which features a 55-250mm focal length for flexible zooming and optical image stabilization to reduce the effects of camera shake.

Love it...Love it!...The lens still uses an electronic focus when you switch to manual focus....Since these cameras have the cropped sensor, the 50mm lens acts as if it was an 80mm lens, which is good for portrait work, but is too long a lens for using indoors like a birthday party, or in a museum.Capture stunning images of wide perspectives with this Canon 9522B002 EF-S wide-angle lens that features an aspheric lens element for high image quality from the center to the edges.
