The design is straight forward, its about the size of a mini soda can and has ridges towards the middle of the body; this is for twisting and using the manual focus. The upper rim of the lens towards the wider opening moves as well and I'm not sure why. There's IS (image stabilization) that probably should be on at all times (its said you don't really need it when on a tripod but I cant see it hurting; professionals my say otherwise). There is another switch that's along side the stabilizer and that's the AF/MF (Auto Foucs / Manual Focus); use this according to what your camera and situation requires. I mostly use the AF because my camera has amazing auto focus. Lastly, you have the markings that display the millimeters to where the lens is set. Twist right to focus in and left to focus out. In essence the lens seems well built.
The functionality that really stands out to me is the STM ability. This stands for Stepper Motor which allows your camera to auto focus without any auditory noise while recording video. Its very smooth and becoming a staple on most setups from what I can see. Obviously, you don't need this if you're just shooting stills or landscapes but I say,"why not have it for the heck of it". Keep in mind this is an EF-S lens which means its compatible with full from cameras as well.
All in all I found this lens to be a great first buy for a beginner on a budget. The fact that I bought it used also speaks volumes and the reason for my 4 stars. When using the lens, and I don't know if this is indicative of the camera or lens, I receive and error stating the camera or lens are not reading correctly; error 1. I'm not sure if its the camera or if its the lens so I give responsibility to both. Great lens. Very affordable, but make sure it works correctly. As of this moment I can still clean both the camera and lens and get them to work together but the question is how long. Time will tell.
Hope this helps someone, and if you have any questions don't hesitate to ask.
Thank you for your time,
I am delighted that my daughter is getting into photography and she could not do much with just the T2i body! Anyway, this deal seemed too good to be true and it is in one way. Item is a white box / gray market item and does not come with warranty card. That said, at less than 1/2 the usual price for this lens if we have to replace it and buy another one we'll still be ahead!
The lens itself is typical kit lens, works well and is super silent with the "STM" designation, good for video. Mount is plastic which is not optimal but this is the type of lens which is left on the camera anyway. I would not recommend it if you intend to swap out to a telephoto or super wide angle lens frequently. Basically this is a good starter lens for a great price.
