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

EFS18-55_35-56IS
Review Date: Mar 19, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Light, Inexpensive, fairly solid/stiff feel to the zoom, sharp! (Did I say Sharp?)
Cons:
Plastic build.

I originally bought the Xti with the 18-55 (NON IS) lens kit. It was disappointing with the softness, even in RAW and post processing in Photoshop. After shooting about 400 pictures I am amazed at the sharpness. Sorry, I haven't got an L lens comparison but the comparison to the non IS kit lens is absolutely amazing. All settings are default on the Xti and I tend to shoot in Av mode around F8 if possible. The price, $249.. Canadian was difficult to pass by, after reading numerous positive reports on this lens.
