Customer Review

Profile: freelance photographer

My equipment:

Canon EOS 550D / 600D - Canon 4.0 / 70-200L IS; ; Canon 18-135 3.5-5.6 IS; Canon 1.8 / 50; Tamron 2.8 / VC 17-50; Tamron 3.5-4-5 / 10-24

After I only with relatively light equipment'm traveling for 3 years, I had to reduce health vigorously the weight of my equipment, I am now landed exclusively at Canon 2011. No Asrüstung weighs more as 2kg.

Why Canon 550D and 600D:
- Professionally I go to play it safe and always have two cameras here
- The battery, the handle fit both cameras
- The 600D for shots where it without folding screen is very difficult to photograph
- Both cameras come with the stated objectives most marvelous

Plus points:

+ Very good workmanship, feels despite much plastic to stable and it is also
+ Zoom ring and Focusierring are very good to use
+ Vignetting due to the two cameras imperceptible cameras expected Vignetierung out very well
+ Sharp throughout the zoom range even at maximum aperture, dimmed by one step for a Universal Zoom very sharp (ideal aperture 5.6 - 11)
+ AF fits perfectly, is very responsive and is quiet
+ Colors are very natural reproduced
+ Very good detail reproduction that you have to look in comparison with other zoom lenses. The smallest details visible at Tamron / Sigma missing those fine details!
+ Landscape photos very natural
+ Portäts be imaged with very good skin tones and a nice bokeh, but is not a portrait lens, here is the 1.8 / 50 very good
+ Tierfotos in Hagenbeck Zoo thanks 135 Endbrennweite very good, is ideal for excursions as it always
+ 18-135 (29-216 mm film to APS-C Canon cameras - crop factor 1.6) ideal lightweight travel gear
+ 45cm minimum focusing distance throughout the entire range
+ Lightweight zoom lens (440gr.) With an ideal zoom range for most situations
+ 3.5-5.6 perfectly adequate, the rest in low light does the excellent IS Lens
+ Innenfocusierung so very suitable for filter element
+ The price of this lens as Universlzoom is very good, here's price performance

Bad points:

- Without lens hood, it must be said again and again, an impertinence of Canon
- Zoom very smoothly, here the Caps Lock key is not so lacking autonomously extends, so far this is not happening (3months lens in use)


# Used by me as Universal Zoom and easily in connection with the Canon 550D / 600D 1kg, perfect for the Sunday outing
# Thanks to the excellent imaging performance in this class super
# Very good imaging performance
# Absolute buy recommendation
