Great starter lens. | Rating:
“This lens is a great value. feels well constructed, opitical quality is good(could be better but not for the price range). It’s great for beginers or amatuers. Used the lens for about 1 year and had no problems with it. great range, 28mm is very wide on 35mm format cameras. great walk around lens. “ – by Elijah Sheffler
I love this lens! | Rating:
“I love this lens and infact it has been on my Xti most over the others I have (50mm,75-300mm and the lens kit 18-55mm. It was well worth the $105.00 and for that price..” – by Lora A. Strazinsky
Pretty good | Rating:
“After having this lens for a while, I’m getting a little frustrated with the range and the iris. 28mm is not bad, but going out to 90 is often times close but not enough. If I could “do it again” i’d have sprung for a more telephoto lens. I still stand by the idea that the lens is good for beginners maybe marginally better than the “kit” 18-55mm lens, but again, you’ll look to change it up soon after.. “ – by Mr. Ben
So far so good | Rating:
“its very lightweight, which is nice on the old Film-based Canon body. I have an EOS7 that weighs a ton. the lens is very sharp and I love the wide angle it gives. As this comes with a nice zoom to boot, I think I’m going to enjoy using it for a long time.” – by Adi Hakkert
Nice addition to my hobby photo kit! | Rating:
“This lens was cheap and takes great shots. I am sure something with better glass and stabilization would be better, but for the price I am 100% satisfied. The lens is compact and I have taken several hundred city-scape shots as well as several hundred sports action shots with awesome results.” – by Christopher J. Livengood
Great Performance | Rating:
“Cannon is undoubtedly making the best digital cameras and lenses in the business. Shots are crystal clear. The zoom is easy to use and dynamic in function. “ – by John B. Kernan Jr
Better Than Expected | Rating:
“I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of this lense. A little tight on zooming, but better than too loose. Optics pretty good at most ranges and fairly sharp. Good at macro and sharp if stable. For someone on a budget this is a very good 28-90mm zoom lense.” – by Jim Darnall
Good Value | Rating:
“It’s not fancy, but for the price its a good value. I find its a little stiff, but the photo quality is fine. “ – by L. Ewert
3.5 Stars | Rating:
“In general I think that this lense is an excellent walk around lense that offers an adequate range for most individuals. I have used this lense on both an EOS Rebel K2 (kit lens for this camera) and a 30D (I only got the body). Of course, the 30D will easily out perform this lense and with the K2.” – by Jacob P. Lavender
