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

 

The Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS ($499.99 direct) isn't the newest lens on the block, but it's still around despite a newer version being available. The newer lens is the Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM —it's $50 more, and its STM motor...

Very sharp. Long zoom range. Optically stabilized

Lacks STM capability. Some distortion

The Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS is an older lens that lacks STM focusing capability, but is still a step up from your D-SLR's standard kit lens.

Versatile Lens

 

Purchased this lens because of its wide range and my need for a single lens for a future trip. This is my first purchase so I do not have much to compare it too, however the pictures I have taken are all sharp and in focus. I couldn\'t ask for more...

Canon\'s 18-135mm IS is an excellent lens

This lens came with my 7D

 

This lens came in the kit with my new EOS 7D, still pretty new, (1 week) but so far seems great! It is a great all around general purpose lens. Images are sharp and clear. WINNER

Sharp Focus,Strong Construction

Consumer review by:

An Average Lens, Barely, Barely Acceptable

 

I purchased this lens to use with my 50D. I wanted a lens that had a good zoom range, which this lens has. However, the lens has issues which doesn't make it a good buy for the price Canon is asking.

none

Slow auto-focus, Poor build quality, auto focus mechanism jerky, not sharp, Poor Color Reproduction

Great lens and value

 

I find this lens to be a great value. It produces sharp images, focuses well and has the basic features of image stabilization and AF switches on the lens.

Super-sharp images, good value
