In response to demands of photographers, this standard zoom lens is designed with Canon's Optical Image Stabilizer technology while retaining the compactness and lightness of previous models. Its stabilization allows sharp hand-held shots at shutter speeds up to four stops slower than otherwise possible. It consists of 11 elements in 9 groups and uses an Aspherical lens element to correct aberration for excellent image quality throughout the zoom range and a circular aperture for exquisite rendering of out-of-focus backgrounds. Without a lot of size, weight or cost, this lens expands picture-taking possibilities any time slow shutter speeds are needed.

I want to start out by saying that this is a pretty decent bi for a new photographer. And at just over $100 at the time of writing this review you can't go wrong if you want to practice with a wide-angle lens. But I might recommend trying the 50mm "Nifty fifty" lens located here: Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II Standard AutoFocus Lens - Gray Market
Now my reasoning for this. Basically most photographers and especially new photographers don't need an 18mm lens and to me zoom lenses sacrifice a lot over fixed zoom lenses. Now the 50mm that I linked to above has a really low f-stop and if you read on in this review I'll explain what n f-stop is and how it works. But I think it's lower f-stop will help many more beginning photographers create better photographs than having an 18mm to 55mm zoom will.
