There are dozens of myths in photography. Like zoom or megapixels. Or "you need a DSLR to take good photographs" and finally "kit lenses are generally not very good lenses". Every myth is built around some sort of reality, and I am not here to say it's all a lie, but it certainly isn't all true either. A good example of this is the Canon EF-S 18-55 mm IS kit lens. (It is difficult to write about something very technical and professional in a very non-professional way, avoiding tech jargon and confusing phrases, which is why the review itself will be sandwiched into a lesson about kit lenses.) Well, first of all, what on Earth is ... Read the complete review

I bought this lens with my new Canon 450D, the difference between buying the camera as a body only, and with the lens was only £50 so I effective paid only this much for this lens. The price for the lens on its own is £145, so buying it with the camera was an incredible bargain. This is a new lens, designed to be the 'kit' lens for Canon's current range of entry level cameras (e.g. 450D). It is an update of the old 'kit' lens supplied with the cheaper Canons since the 300D but has several significant improvements. The lens covers the range 18-55mm which, when fitted to the Canon 450D, which has a 'crop factor' of 1.6, gives a 35mm equivalent focal ... Read the complete review

If you choose to buy an affordable Canon DSLR, more likely than not, the camera body will come with this kit lens, the not very succinct Canon EF-S 18-55mm f 3.5-5.6 IS. This lens can often be found in camera shops unused but sold at used prices because some buyers already have a set a lenses and do not need this one and so trade it in brand new. This lens is only usable on Canon's crop sensor cameras due to the lens fitment, these are cameras that have APS-C sensors. The lens is a short, black coloured plastic build with silver detailing . Most of the lens barrel is taken up by the zoom ring, the rubbery texture makes it easy to grip and is sufficiently ... Read the complete review

a review in one paragraph: it has a good range and is a good lens for lots of situations, but get rid of it as soon as possible if you want to take really good photos or make large prints. a slightly longer review: Now a days probably 90% of digital images are never printed, and stay on websites like flickr or facebook- if you don't look too closely (people call this pixel peeping) even a cheap lens can produce ok images when viewed on a screen, even a modest sized print (A4) will expose the flaws of a lens, and that's where a cheap lens like this can start to let you down. If you pay a load of money to go on a photo expedition, say you go to the ... Read the complete review

The 18mm of this lens lets you take wide shots which is great if you want to take an image of something thats huge. The other side, the 55mm lets you take slightly closer shots which is great if you want to take multiple images of something and make them all look different! I also have a longer lens for this which I have previously reviewed and Im saying this because this lens is super small, which is great if you do want to switch up your lenses! The downside is that the 55mm isn't really a 'zoom'. It barely zooms in much so you will be limited to what you want to shoot, (which is why i suggest buying a longer lens). If you just want ...
