I still have the Canon EFS 18-55mm that came with my Xt , I was just wondering if it's worth the effort to sale it . It's very unlikely there's much of a market for it ...

I kept mine, even after acquiring better glass, just so I would have lens to sell with my old Rebel when the time came. It is a LOT easier to sell an entry level DSLR if it comes with a lens.

The poor 18-55 I takes a lot of heat for being a piece of crap but there are some valid uses for it. WHen you do not need a faster lens or when shooting for the web display, or when you want a decent lightweight lens to bring along, it's ok. If the $100 or so you get for it is worth more, sell it.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.
I used to hate math but then I realised decimals have a point.

This. Keep it for when you sell your XT.

This, if it were the MKII it might be worth it. The original is an awful little lens but its always easier to sell an entry level body with a lens.

I have the Tamron 17-50mm 2.8 so this has lens just has been sitting for years . After looking on ebay , I think it would be hard to get $50 for it . I think I'll put it on the local craglist and see what happens ...

Lol , very true .. But actually I'm using my old Xt right now , at least until my 30D gets fixed or replaced . It's always good to have a back-up . As you can see , I'm not one to jump on every new body that come out , or lens.;)

I also have a Tamron 55-200mm , I thought about selling . But it is a handy little lens for the times I don't want to take out my better lens .

The truth is you might get $50 or so for it. Whether $50 is worth the bother is really up to you. I cant honestly imagine using it for anything, except maybe rolling rig shots for cars where there is a chance of failure.

+1.. those that haven't had a DSLR usually aren't interested in just a body- they want something to start out with. Most tend to prefer zooms ( which is why every Canon kit set is usually a zoom ).

When I had a 18-55 IS- I kept it for when I parted with the t1i.. When it was just a spare body- I'd loan it out with the 18-55 - sort of a cheap loaner lens.

By a $6 reversing ring and use it for macro photography. Every insect shot on my flickr page is taken with that setup. It works amazingly well for macro.
