If you're working on taking better pictures without spending a small fortune on a lens then this is the lens you're looking for. Once you see the difference between this and the kit lens this will instantly become your go to lens. Some people have complained about the plastic build of this lens, but honestly it hasn't bothered me at all. It makes it lightweight and keeps the price down without sacrificing picture quality. Like I said, I've used this lens weekly for nearly five years and it looks and works as good as when it was brand new.
My only problem with it is that it seems to regularly forget to contact my camera body. I'll press the shutter button and then it tells me that the contact points aren't connected, or something like that. This means I often have to ask my subject to freeze a moment longer while I try a second time (and it usually works). All my efforts at cleaning have failed to fix this. My other lenses do not demonstrate this issue, so it's a problem with the lens itself.
Additional word to the wise - check and double check your focus when you're using auto-focus and shooting somewhat close up! It's way too easy to come away with a beautiful photo...that's focused on the nose instead of the eyes. This is a user-error, not a camera error - but much easier to do with this lens (since the depth of focus is so shallow).
But all in all, I LOVE this lens and it has paid itself off many times. Happy photographer, happy customers = win-win situation!
One of my biggest complaints about this lens is it is SLOW to focus. When I first bought it my daughter wasn't running around yet so it wasn't a big deal, but now with a toddler it is a big problem. By the time the camera can achieve focus she is already moving away, I miss a lot of pictures that way. Another thing to note is this lens is loud, not usually a big deal to me but after using my other lenses I really notice how loud this one is! One thing I worry about a little is the build quality. It is made of plastic and doesn't feel very sturdy, but I am sure the price has something to do with this. I know people that call this a disposable lens because of the cheap build quality and for the price that doesn't bother me but I get worried about it getting stuck on my camera. I have talked to several people who bumped or dropped their camera with this lens attached and then it gets stuck. You can send it in to get it off but that costs money (plus your lens is toast) or you can google DIY videos and attempt this yourself but that freaks me out. That said, I have had mine a year and a half and haven't had any problems with it. I tend to be very careful with my stuff but I know accidents happen.
Overall I have been very pleased with my purchase of this lens and would recommend this to someone looking for a good beginner lens. I love that Canon made a nice affordable prime lens option because when I first began I had sticker shock over a lot of the lenses (now I have a wishlist of L series lenses, lol). Love the photo quality I have gotten but I just wish the focus was a little faster, then I would have given five stars.
