    Great lens, great price, warranty included.

    I started shooting (both stills and a good deal of video work) with a DSLR (Canon 60D) a little over 2 years ago and felt my photography/videography skills had advanced to the point where I could justify upgrading to Canon's L-series lenses. I had previously been using the Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II kit lens, a Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 prime and a Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4.0-5.6 IS II telephoto lens. I wanted to cut back on the amount of gear I carried to just one main lens + my 50mm prime so I started looking for a good "everyday" lens that I could carry with me that would cover a decent range for the type of shooting I do (walking around the city, nature, people, events, vacations, short films, etc.)I spent weeks scouring Amazon, YouTube, Flickr and many other sites looking at pictures/videos taken with and reading/watching reviews of the Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8 L II USM and the Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM.

    What an "L" lens is all about.

    I was happy with photos taken using the consumer kit lenses that came with my camera. I thought that they already gave me sharp and clear pictures. But I've been reading a lot of testaments saying that once you've tried an "L" lens you will never go back. I was curious to test this theory. So I decided to acquire this lens the moment I was able to save up enough for it. When I unpacked the lens from the box, I immediately noticed its build quality (it was solid and heavy), had ample weather-protection features (it had gasket-like seals), and smooth buttery operation (the focus and zoom rings glide smoothly). Once I tested it to take pictures, then I realized what a premium piece of equipment I got in my hands. I told myself, this must be what the pros have been talking about. This lens gave me tack sharp pictures, with good contrast, and great color resolution. They were simply magazine material quality photos..Most of those who saw the pictures I took praised... 5/5 Nom de Plume - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    For 28 bucks?

    So what do you get for 28 bucks?I am a pro and thought i would give this a try before i go and drop 5 large on a real wide angle lens.The Good:Pretty nice glass for the money, in the pic with the wire rim of my readers the glass is pretty clear, better than i expected for the money for the macro only part. Given you are putting another layer of glass between your subject and the sensor i could see using this now and again. It did mess with the AF a little so I switched to MF and simply moved the camera closer till i got the focus point I wanted.Doesn't take a lot of light away.As for the wide angle, well it's ok. If I zoom up a little to get rid of the vignetting it seems to have mostly a usable area but......Now for the Bad:The focus drops off severely around the outer edges and there is some color aberrations to contend with along the edges as well.

    For real estate/architecture - Major pro: Excellent edge-to-edge sharpness. Minor cons: flares/ghosts easily, barrel distortion

    I shoot a lot of real estate, and had been using the Canon 10-22mm as my main lens. After reading Ken Rockwell's glowing review on the 10-18mm, I thought I'd try it out. My first day with the new lens, I noticed a major drawback, which is that it flares very easily when photographing light sources. "Ghosting" may be the more appropriate term - you'll see green blobs show up underneath direct light sources, especially chandeliers or any kind of bare light source. (See attached bedroom picture.)It took me a little longer to notice the next drawback, but reviewing my photos after shoots, I was seeing that the lens has considerable barrel distortion in certain shots, probably mostly at the wider focal lengths. Some photos have a slight fisheye bulge to them where straight lines appear to curve. The attached picture of the bedroom was taken at 11mm - you can see the distortion on the door on the right edge.The one very nice advantage it has over the 10-22mm... 4/5 David Sparks - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Ultra wide zoom with top image quality

    The EF-S 10-18 4.5-5.6 IS STM is the least expensive and smallest ultra wide zoom among a small field of contenders. The EF-S mount fits APS-C (1.6X crop) cameras only, e.g., Rebel series or 70D. It does not fit full-frame models like the 5D or 6D. Here's my take on this able little lens after a couple months of shooting on a SL1.BUILD: Like the 18-55 STM, it's made of plastic, save for optics and electronics. However, it feels solid in hand: plastics are good quality, no play in the mount or barrel and it’s nicely finished in semi-matte black. It’s a featherlight 240g and easy to slip in a coat pocket or purse.FOCUS is internal--no front element extension or turning—and peppy enough, but slower than the EF-s 10-22 3.5-4.5 USM. However, focus is silent to onboard mics. The STM drive rendered pulls and Movie Servo silky smooth on my SL1.The "by wire," i.e., powered manual focus is smooth but lacks the control of a mechanical... 5/5 P.K.
