Yet Another Review Of The Canon EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM (Video)

The Canon EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM is on the best way to become a best seller. Very good performance at a more than affordable price. The Canon EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM sells for $299 and is in stock at Adorama and B&H Photo. Kudos to Canon for making such a good lens and for selling it at that price.

German photographer Michael Schmidt posted a video review of the EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM. The lens was tested on a Canon EOS 70DMichael Schmidt writes:

– makes optically nice & sharp pictures
– great wide-angle look 
– great & silent Auto-focus works smooth in Video-mode
– good Images stabilizer (IS)
– good close focus range … almost macro feel to it
– works good for taking stills
– good price (around 270 EUR in Germany and $299 in the US)

con’s:
– manual focus ring is small and has no hard stops or markings on it so its a bit hard to manually focus
– non-constant aperture 
– built quality is not the best / its not exactly weather sealed 
– does not come with a Lens Hood
