    Cons: Very cheap build quality, manual focusing is impossible. Noisy and slow AF. CAs, vignetting and everything.

    Pros: Cheap and not so bad over f5.6. Low price & AF & good zoom range.

    Summary: Good lens for beginners.....

    Pros: Very light, ideal for hiking. Reasonable optics considering the low price.

    Summary: The kit lens to my Canon 400D. Reasonable optical quality f7.1-11. Replace it by a Sigma 18-50 2.8-4.0 OS HSM
