Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Standard Zoom Lens is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 45.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok for snapshots This is often the standard lens that comes with many of the DSLR's. At first glance, it's great that it's lightweight and has good focal length range. It's ok for everyday snapshots but ends there. Has terrible end distortion, especially at lower focal lengths(wide angle), which makes it an issue for landscapes, group pics, etc. If you're at all concerned about image quality, you'll want to buy a replacement for this lens sooner than later.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from ok This lens is good for what I bought it for. But colored lens cannot be used on this as there is no tread to screw the colored lens on. The lens cap does not fit very well on this. Even tho it says 58mm the lens cap is to big for it. So give that some thought before you get one. For the most part I really do like working with it. Just have to get a lens cap that fits.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from NO WAY...YES WAY!!! T3i purchased after long consideration given to cost and options...Best choice in a camera for this 45 year plus career photographer among the last four digital purchased.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Throw away lens I should have waited The lens was included with a kit and is no longer included with the T4i kits with good reason! If I knew how poorly it was built and noisy it was (useless shooting video unless you use a external mic) yes it's loud might as well shoot video next to a passing freight train, as for the build I have never seen anything made by Canon built so cheap! I though it was a counterfeit lens at first until I read others reviews if I knew canon was going to remove it from the kit and replace it with a STM version I would have waited! I had to buy a new STM lens to shoot video, I don't know what Canon was thinking when they included this piece of plastic pretending to be a Lens.
