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

Postby jitteringjr » Fri Apr 18, 2008 4:02 am

First off this is my first post and I want to say thank you to Gordon. I found your review videos on Utube very helpful and I hope you are able to grow this website to include many more reviews.

A little about my photographic background: I used to shoot on a Minolta X-700 manual focus camera until the film advance shaft broke on it. I then got a digital point and shoot and pretty much loss interest in photography until just recently when I got a Canon Rebel XT. I bought it body only and got the 50mm 1.8 and the 18-55 IS lens that I’m posting pictures here now.

(all images are iso100 except for the dog photo which was iso400)

I love this lens especially for the money. I used to have a Quantaray 35-80mm f4-5.6 which should be similar to this with the 1.6 crop, but this can do so much more with the IS and it is so much more sharp. I would suggest that anyone considering an entry-level Canon dslr with the kit lens to buy the body only and get this lens instead. The extra $100US is well worth it.

Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS (Kit Lens)

I found it hard to get the flower stem in focus, but macro is possible, as proven in other results.

Image

Canon EOS 500D ~ ISO 800 ~ 1/100 ~ F/5.6 (above image)

Here's another macro shot, this one is slightly better, but I believe that if I used a tripod, different settings, and a different lens, I could have achieved better results, but these images are just to prove that it can provide macro images.

Image

Canon EOS 500D ~ ISO 800 ~ 1/125 ~ F/9 (above image)

Here is a general all round image, with no intended shallow depth of field

Image

Canon EOS 500D ~ ISO 400 ~ 1/150 ~ F/14 (above image)

All images are shot hand held with image stabalisation (IS Switch) turned on

Using Macro mode, yes admittedly I took the easy route this time :D

The depth of field could have been a tad more controlled.

The 18-55mm is the little kit lens that could!

Here's a couple of my shots on a 50D. (Click for link to my measly non-pro Flickr stream to see them 1024 wide).

f/5 1/500sec ISO100 45mm

Same shot as above, 100% crop

The noisy cricket? This guy was about 1cm long, and had a distinct preference for the other side of his twig (relative to my lens). Shot is 50% crop.
