Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Reviews

Photographyblog reviews the Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM and writes;
“Image quality is pretty good rather than outstanding. Centre and edge sharpness isn’t great throughout the zoom range at the maximum aperture, but stopping-down by one stop sharpens things up considerably, whatever focal length you use. Chromatic aberrations aren’t very well controlled, though, and there’s obvious geometric distortion at the wider focal lengths and some obvious corner shading at the maximum aperture. “
