Thumbs up...Fun Lens!...It is made entirely of durable plastic, and plastic mount....Closer to 10 mm gives the characteristic distortion wide angle lens are known to have and then 18 mm is the same as any basic 18-55 mm lens which isn't distorted.
With an STM (stepping motor) and focus mechanism, this Canon EF-S 9519B002 zoom lens allows you to record ultrasharp videos or capture crisp photos using your compatible Canon camera. The UD lens element helps you take highly realistic images.
Not bad....Good deal...It zooms really well, the IS is great, and the plastic build keeps the weight down....Now my pics are coming out super clear and I'm able to get those priceless moments that you can't get when you're having to chase something around
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.
Good results...AWESOME LENS...the new cheaper lenses have a plastic coupling that many reviewers complained that it breaks....Zoom ring is a bit too stiff but it is better than being to loose and lens sliding out each time camera is pointing down.

The focal length covers a broad range, allowing you to snap stunning travel photos, portraits and close-ups. Tripod detection and vibration reduction help you create the sharpest images possible.
so good...Great buy...I would recommend getting this lens over more expensive models if you travel a lot and really need to optimize your space or there is a possibility of damage, you need a quick lens that won't weigh you down, or you really want to break into the portrait scene....The downside is that you can't zoom in or out so it gets annoying having to move around a lot but the lens is mainly designed for that blurry background setting so for its purpose its great.
Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM Standard Lens: Capture important moments in your life with this standard lens, which works with your compatible Canon DSLR EF-mount camera. A circular aperture with 7 blades helps you add creative background blur.
Great fun...Best lens...Had a problem with the lens fitting (machining issues) bestbuy replaced immediately and all is well, as for Nikkor there's not much to say, they are the best chunk of glass you can get for Nikon cameras....best 50mm for the buck, crazy sharp, 1.8 is good for low light and to use for a shallow DoF and in my oppinion is the best lens to start with for a DX body, so you learn how to possition your self.

Love it!!...So nice....Almost everyone said "A must to have lens..." & Indeed after using it for a month or so, I would repeat the same words, "A must to have lens..." What a crisp image this lens produce, highly satisfied with its result....Although it's sharp, remaining so for the most part until it's wide open, it has some distortion and isn't as rectalinear - meaning straight lines appear straight - as I'd like, which is to be expected at this price point, and can be corrected in software.
Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G Standard Lens: Whether you're a beginner or professional, you'll love this compact, lightweight lens from Nikon. The normal angle of view captures approximately what the human eye sees, making it a great all-around lens. Plus, the f/1.8 maximum aperture is ideal for creating softly blurred backgrounds and shooting in low light.
Good Zoom...great idea...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....quick and easy to attach, love the way it takes pictures from a distance and the look like you are right at the object you are taking pictures of....Outside getting a combo lens (more money) this was excellent value included in the canon black Friday combo.

Great Buy...Love it...I bought this with the idea that it was lighter and less bulky than the traditional DSLR, however I opted to go for the weather proof Olympus, nothing wrong with this camera, I am just into extreme conditions and realized this would not do it for me....Purchased at the same time as our camera the lens was a perfect additional to our trip to Italy - so many great shots we would have missed without it....My purchase was an especially good deal as I bought it on Black Friday as part of a package but was then able to return the rest of the package for an adjusted refund.

Nice but...nice macro...This lens is very good to be so cheap, and unlike the east does not feel that it is made with low quality materialsThis lens is very good to be so cheap, and unlike others this does not feel that it is made with low quality materials...It allowed me to get the background of photos without having to move so far back like my 50 mm lens and it lightened up my photos without me needing to know how to use pro level features

Great Len...Awsome Lens...Recently while photographing the Pride Parade in SF, I used the IS setting that allows for panning/tracking with an EF Teleconvert III at f5.6 and was really excited about the results....This lens was my dream one , it is expensive but I love it , it give real good quality , however in low light it is risky for blurring the whole photo

Great Lens!...Very good...I recently got into DSLR filmmaking and totally ignored my colleagues' recommendation that I just buy a camera body without the sub-par quality kit lens....But in general the image quality is the best that you can get, a very very cool lens, the best of the best, if you are searching to take head shots only.
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. It's excellent for basic portraits and scenic shots, especially at night.
Nice Lens...Nice lens!...I have captured some neat photos from across the field from where I live (live in country), the subject was quite a distance from my back door also....The f 1.8 is really great and gives you perfect focus on the person and defocuses everything else - it's easy to set it how you like it in Manual mode.

Nice Lens...LOVE IT!!!...I was looking the camera for last one year which should very easy to handle for my son and same time high quality and professional for myself and finally this one has all....Its zoom range is great as an all day walk around lens (this lens stays on my camera 95% of the time, rarely when I need a longer focal length will I put on my 55-300 lens).

very cool...Good zoom...Very fun to play with and worked out awesome for those trips to Disney where you want a picture of something that may be too far away for the typical zoom!...I use this lens to record church service and sit near the back of church and it zooms in close and objects/subject is clear and makes it a lot easier than using the standard lens.
With Optical SteadyShot image stabilization, this Sony NEX SEL55210 lens makes it easy to take clear, steady photos and videos with your Sony NEX digital camera. The 3.8x zoom lets you hone in on distant subjects from far away.
Amazing Lens...Great lens!...Although limited by the maximum aperture that you can only achieve with a prime lens, this is a perfect workhorse lens for a variety of situations....While not really required the tripod mount provides a better balance - otherwise the camera lens combination tends to be somewhat front loaded specifically when used on light-weight DSLRs
