An EF-S lens eliminates the crop issue. An 18-55 EF-S lens will function as an 18-55.
You get the crop issue when you mount EF lenses on your camera.

It acts as 28-88mm lens. The "S" in EF-S stands for "Short back focus".
|Quoting JumboJim747 (Reply 3):|
The crop factor has nothing to do with the lens .
The crop factor is an in camera sensor feature and not a lens feature
The EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 is a standard zoom lens specifically designed for the EOS 300D digital SLR. Its effective focal length is equivalent to 29-88mm in 35mm film format.

Until we are told otherwise (by the manufacturers), all SLR lens focal lengths are quoted in the 35mm full frame format
|Quoting Kukkudrill (Reply 9):|
Lens focal length has nothing to do with sensor/frame size and won't change if you mount the lens on a camera with a smaller sensor. The only thing that would change is the image perspective produced by the smaller sensor, and this is what the crop factor is meant to indicate. My old Olympus C-740 has a focal length of 6.3 to 63mm which is quoted as equivalent to 38-380mm on a 35mm camera because the Olympus has such a tiny sensor, but supposing I could somehow detach the lens and mount it on a 35mm SLR the focal length would remain 6.3-63mm.

Until we are told otherwise (by the manufacturers), all SLR lens focal lengths are quoted in the 35mm full frame format, as most above have correctly stated.

I have had the 18-55mm lens for almost 2 years now and actually love the little thing...

I don't know why it seems to get such a bad press. Personally I think it's a great little lens and have taken some lovely shots with it.
