Ideal zoom lens to leave on your camera body,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Zoom Lens (Electronics)
At first you might think this lens is too light and has a less than solid feel but the lightness is an advantage with a heavy camera body. I use the Canon 60D. This is the first STM lens I have used. It is silent in auto focus and can be manually tweaked if needed without switching to manual mode which is a big advantage. Also the lens does not rotate when zooming or focusing so as I use a polarising filter this is ideal. A disadvantage is that Canon have designed a narrow focusing ring at the front of the lens which is covered by the lens hood when in the stored position. I suppose this is a minor inconvenience and only applies if you want to manually focus without the hood in its functional position. Overall the image quality is excellent and the Image Stabilising system is an asset for close up work. I am very pleased with the lens.
