In response to demands of photographers, this standard zoom lens is designed with Canon's Optical Image Stabilizer technology while retaining the compactness and lightness of previous models. Its stabilization allows sharp hand-held shots at shutter speeds up to four stops slower than otherwise possible. It consists of 11 elements in 9 groups and uses an aspherical lens element to correct aberration for excellent image quality throughout the zoom range and a circular aperture for exquisite rendering of out-of-focus backgrounds. Without a lot of size, weight or cost, this lens expands picture-taking possibilities any time slow shutter speeds are needed.

Canon EF zoom lens - 18 mm - 55 mm is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 45.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for beginners I’m personally pretty attached to this lens as it’s my first lens I’ve ever had. As most others have said, I received it in a beginner level kit and I think for beginners, it’s a very versatile lens. The focal length range is good for a number of different subjects from people to landscapes. Of course don’t expect professional level quality from this lens, but we all have to start somewhere. Zoom lenses are also nifty, though they tend to sacrifice clarity for this feature.It is a little noisy when focusing and I have trouble shooting in semi-dark areas like neon-lit rooms or dusky beaches. While nice and versatile, it is pretty average. I almost always find myself using Photoshop and Lightroom to adjust for a beginner-quality lens in post production. Overall, I highly recommend this lens for beginners and those first learning how to shoot in manual mode. However, I recommend getting a prime lens for intermediate level photographers or those looking for a general lens upgrade.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok for snapshots This is often the standard lens that comes with many of the DSLR's. At first glance, it's great that it's lightweight and has good focal length range.It's ok for everyday snapshots but ends there.Has terrible end distortion, especially at lower focal lengths(wide angle), which makes it an issue for landscapes, group pics, etc.If you're at all concerned about image quality, you'll want to buy a replacement for this lens sooner than later.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Throw away lens I should have waited The lens was included with a kit and is no longer included with the T4i kits with good reason! If I knew how poorly it was built and noisy it was (useless shooting video unless you use a external mic) yes it's loud might as well shoot video next to a passing freight train, as for the build I have never seen anything made by Canon built so cheap! I though it was a counterfeit lens at first until I read others reviews if I knew canon was going to remove it from the kit and replace it with a STM version I would have waited! I had to buy a new STM lens to shoot video, I don't know what Canon was thinking when they included this piece of plastic pretending to be a Lens.
