hi, does anyone here own both these Canon lenses;
EF-S 50mm f1.8 prime lens ( £ 80 or so )
EF-S 18-55mm IS lens ( £ 120 or so )
the IS zoom lens is the new kit lens, included with 450d etc, and has had good reviews, I know the prime lens is cheap but has had amazing reviews for sharpness and clarity / colour rendition.
I would be interested to hear from anyone who has both these lens, and if so could they let me know how the IS zoom lens compared to the prime.
I have the stock 18-55 kit lens , which I have to admit I find very low quality, the sharpness is extremely poor for a slr lens of any price, Im used to Zuiko lens, with excellent sharpness and are the best kit lenses you can get, but as I also have a Canon slr, Im wanting to get rid of the stock lens, but am not sure about buying the new zoom IS lens, unless it is a major improvement over the non IS version.
so before I order any of those 2 lens, I really would like to hear from anyone who owns both and can make a direct comparison between them, and also compared to the stock non-IS 18-55 kit lens
