This lens has become my favorite to use. I use it for a bit of everything from landscape to weddings and everything in between. though I dislike the fact that the lens will not stay at the zoom I am at if I tip the camera forward even slightly.

Great Zoom Lens
Bought this lens with a 60D camera 18 months ago. Wanted something that would work for most shooting situations. Do not like switching lenses. This is a great lens for anyone that wants to use just one lens to shoot in almost every situation they encounter. Has worked out great. Have taken over 2000 pictures so far. Could not be more satisfied. Yes the lens does creep. Yes it is a little heavy. So far these have not been major problems. Would recommend this for anyone who wants to take great photos.

This is a good lens for my general use as a professional architect. The weight gives balance to steady freehand shots. Substantial lens creep is the only drawback as there is not allways a time for using the lock.

this lens came with my camera package from Costco. It does take great photos but I dislike the fact that when taking close ups at 18mm there is a shadow at the bottom of the picture. I also extremely dislike the weight and the fact that the lens will not stay at the zoom I am at if I tip the camera forward.
