Canon EF-S 18-55mm F/3.5-5.6 IS Review

A novel innovation for the Canon’s APS-C DSLR cameras is the Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS. Latest in the slot of budget-friendly DSLR kit lenses, the gadget was launched in the year of 2007.

 

Also known as a budget ‘kit’ lens, the new model by Canon boasts of a superior optical design. In this new product innovation, Canon has not only improved the blueprint but has also added a feature known as image stabilizer, something that today every smartphone comes with. The lens extends a bit towards the zoom range and the shortest physical reach of the lens is ballpark 24mm. For finer image quality, Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS offers a field view of 29-88mm on full format cameras.

 

Even though the quality of plastic used to manufacture the new Canon product is not exceptionally good, when it comes to functionality, the EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 is outstanding. Even though the camera looks bulky, it weighs merely 205g and measures 75cm in length. Also, since it is an EF-S lens, it can solely be used on an EOS APS-C body. Another drawbacks of the Canon EF-S 18-55MM F/3.5-5.6 IS is that the inner tube of the lens requires manual settings. Due to the rotational feature of the front element of the camera, it is difficult to use polarization.

 

The new Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS has extremely low manual focusing. Nonetheless, when it comes to zooming power, nothing can beat the new device. Auto-focusing via EF-S 18-55mm doesn’t take any longer than 0.15 seconds. As far as the focal length is concerned, at 18mm the angle view is 74 º 20'; and, at 55mm the angle view is 27º 50'. Controlling chromatic aberrations is also not a strong point of the new Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS. However, this negative is set by a reproduction ratio of 0.36x for 55mm focal length.

 

The Canon EF-S 18-55 f/3.5-5.6 IS also has an iris diaphragm with 7 rounded blades that adds to the quality of the Bokeh, a term that is used to describe the ‘out-of-focus’ photography areas (smooth / creamy / harsh). A little but an imperative thing about the EF-S18-55 is that the image stabilization that it provides is good enough for up to 4-f stops. Some other specifications about the camera are that it has 6 rounded aperture blades and also a barrel shaped hood that is optional.

  • The Good :
    Zoom functionality,Image Stabalization
  • The Bad :
