Fine - But...
on 12 July 2016
I was really torn when I bought this lens. I didn't want to carry around two Canon lenses but I couldn't afford to buy a new all rounder from Canon. So I bought this and thought "I'm sure it will be fine!"
It is fine, but it really isn't great! The auto focus really struggles and the quality of the pictures just isn't as good as it is with the Canon lens. Also the zoom function is very loose and when being carried on a shoulder strap will naturally extend to its maximum.
For a "cheap" all rounder this is a good choice, and I have taken some good pictures with it, but it's not as crisp as the Canon lens and this is especially true when you are zooming.
Overall - everyday here and there is fine, or if you NEED to travel light this is good, if the quality of your pictures is important then save up and get the Canon.
