My 18-55mm arrived just the other day and I've not really had a chance to take it out other than late last night. I drove to Dallas to see what it could do at night without a tripod.
ISO on these shots was 2000 to 2500. Shutter speeds were from 1/8s to 1/60s
Here we go....
The IOS of the 18-55 makes it much easier to use in low light situations. Thus far I have no real complaints about the 18-55. Seems to live up to all I have read about it.
