  • Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 USM

    7 out of 10 points and recommended
    light, cheap, great images for lens price, nice bokeh
    slow & noisy focus

    For a kit lens, this is pretty nice. I have gotten many excellent images using this lens. It is super light and can take a pretty good range of images. My only complaint is that I find myself needing to focus manually a bit too often when it just cannot seem to figure it out. I think this is mostly because I am really pushing the limits on what this lens is capable of doing.

    I am one of those people who does not really stress lens durability so that was not much of a concern. I don't find myself banging my lenses into hard objects very often.

  • Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II

    8 out of 10 points and recommended
    cheap, great images
    could be more durable

    At this price, this lens is a no brainer... just get it. It takes great portraits, it is small and light so you won't mind bringing it along on a shoot. Yes, it is plastic and could be made better. Unless you routinely bang your camera around or drop your camera bag, you'll probably be ok.
