Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Lens

 

The Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Lens is a significant upgrade from the standard-at-review-time 18-55mm IS kit lens.It is an upgrade in many ways, but the 18-135's most attractive features are a wide (7.5x) focal length range, a relatively...

Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM

 

The Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM ($549.99 direct) is one of only two lenses from Canon that use STM focusing motors, the other being the EF 40mm f/2.8 STM . When paired with the new EOS Rebel T4i D-SLR these lenses provide smooth, silent...

Silent motor. Smooth video focus with T4i. Optically stabilized

Some distortion. Not quite as sharp as non-STM version of lens

The EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM is the best zoom you can get for shooting video with the EOS Rebel T4i, but it's not quite as sharp as its non-STM sibling.

I would like to complete a full Canon EF-M 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Lens review in the future.

An updated standard zoom lens with a new stepping motor drive for quiet auto focusing while shooting movies.

We found a significant improvement in AF performance when the review lens was used on the EOS 650D body. It wasn't quite as fast on the EOS 1100D so the gains probably result from improvements to the camera's AF system. They were most evident in low...

Really good all-round lens for the money ; Does both stills and video with great quality ; Rigid build

A little on the heavy side

When I don't have my 70-300L series on the 7-D I have this lens on it continuously. As previously mentioned, it can be used on a full frame body, AP-S bodies only. I have used this lens for weddings and it is great. One downside (onloy slight) is that...

Does Not Creep ; Should Be An L Series ; Tack Sharp And Fast

Full Frame Body ; Not Able To Be Used On A

Could be an "L" series lens

 

Saw this lens and read reviews stating how fast and sharp it was. It is truly hard to believe this is a kit lens. it is amazingly fast to focus, tack sharp and super quiet. for a non "L" series EF-S lens, it has the makings of a winner. I would...

Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM review by johnheiam

 

Compared to the Canon 28 - 135mm IS USM lens it is sharper in the center, and less sharp in the corners for all focal lengths. In general I prefer it to the 28 - 135mm IS USM lens.

Decent build quality, sharp images, light weight

a little slow to focus even in bright light
