Top 5 worst Canon lens
Jun 12, 2006

Well everyone always wants to know what lens to buy. How about what lens not to buy?

I can only start this list as my other lens (17-40 & 70-200) have been excellent.

Lets start with

  1. 1 - Canon EF-S 18-55 (kit lens)

What a piece of garbage. I have had better pictures with a Walgreens disposable camera with a scratched lens. There are plenty of people on here who constantly try to play this one up, but everyone should agree this is the worst.

  1. 2 - Canon EF-S 17-85

Not really a bad lens. Just don't take pictures of anything with straight lines, ever.

Thats the limit of my experience.

What is #3, 4 & 5?
