Most helpful reviews

Jenny, North Devon

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
I love that the lens zooms in so much closer than the 18-55 Canon lens. It's compact enough to fit into my holster bag so is easy to carry round.
Bad points:
Sometimes has difficulty deciding on focus by 'hunting' but when I'm happy with the focus, I switch to manual and all is well.

Graeme, Keen amateur, Canon user

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Great travelling lens, can get everything I need with this and a 10-20mm wide angle. Feels well balanced when attached to the 20D
Bad points:
Slight loss of edge sharpness at the wide end. Some barrel distortion at the wide end too.

Claire, Newmarket Keen amateur

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
This has revolutionised my photography and has proved the ideal lens for capturing my summer activities. Highly recommended for anyone looking to expand their camera bag from the basic twin lens kit that most people start with.
Bad points:
It zooms the opposite way to my Canon lens which has taken some getting used to!
