Looking to upgrade your 350D / XT’s kit lens, but not sure which model to go for? Check out our video below which compares the standard EF-S 18-55mm against three popular general purpose alternatives, including the stabilised EF-S 17-85mm. The camera we used in the video was an EOS 400D, but all the lenses work on the EOS 350D and the comments equally apply. If you’re interested in seeing results from each model along with a detailed discussion of their pros and cons, check out our full Canon kit lens group test.
