18-55mm STM sample
In reply to SeaScout851, Sep 1, 2013

I recently picked up a white box EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM as a lightweight carry around with my 60D. First time out I wanted to see how sharp the lens could be at it's widest as that's where I'll probably be using it the most.

This image is handheld, 18mm, f/8, 1/350 sec., ISO 200 and processed normally with DPP, a bit of contrast and sharpness added. The second photo is a 100% crop taken from the approximate center of the image.

I'm not disappointed in the quality of this $145 white box lens which weighs less than 1/4 as much as my 24-70 and less than half as much as my 17-40.
