Reviving The Kit

It's been more than three years since I replaced my kit lens (Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS) due to busted AF function. I rarely use it right now and usually I resort to it when I do macro photography via reverse ring or tube extensions.

I tried to use it as the primary lens for my project this weekend and tried to check and see how it still performs on product photography that I have been doing for several weekends now.

Toblerone

So far so good for the Toblerone shot if I may say.

My sweet tooth seems to crave for more chocolates and I found more and ate one in the process.

After Eight
After that minty-chocolate stuff, I found a bottle of Vodka and it was a good thing that there was lemon to include in this shot.

Absolut Vodka
Too bad no drinking buddy that night but will be saving it for someday.

Those were the shots from the kit lens. It ain't bad after all I believe. What do you think? The only remark I could say with it is that even on MF mode, the focusing is very tricky as it is very wobbly and tends to get out of focus with minute changes or movement.

I still happy with the results with the kit lens. It would have been a more productive shoot if a better lens was used I think.

Product photography with the kit lens is still possible.

Cheers!
