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

 

The Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Lens is designed as a step up from the standard-at-review-time 18-55mm IS kit lens.The 18-135's most attractive features are a wide (7.5x) focal length range, a low price, a relatively light weight/small package,and...

Canon EF-S 18-135mm f3.5-5.6 IS

 

It's also a sensible move for Canon to introduce what's effectively its first intermediate EF-S kit lens. Previously it was a big jump in price from the basic EF-S 18-55mm IS to either the EF-S 17-85mm IS USM or its successor the EF-S 15-85mm IS USM....

Flexible 7.5x range zooms 2.5x closer than basic kit lens., Effective Stabilisation with 3 stops in our tests., Metal lens mount and non-rotating filter mount., Affordable step-up from basic kit lens.

Soft in extreme corners, especially at larger apertures., Noticeable vignetting and geometric distortion., Loud AF motor, and MF ring rotates during AF., Some creep between 20 and 85mm (actual).

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

 

A new 7.5x standard zoom lens that automatically selects the optimum Image Stabiliser mode. Announced at the beginning of September, this new Canon standard zoom lens was designed to complement the EOS 7D body on which we tested it. Providing a focal...

You want an affordable general-purpose lens to match the 7D body., You'd like a lens that requires no readjustment when you fit polarisers and graduated filters. Don't buy this lens if :, You require high resolution at all focal lengths, along with...

Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS - Review / Lab Test Report

 

The Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS may be somewhat better than the EF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS but it's not exactly a good lens either. The resolution makes a rather wild roller coaster ride through the different quality levels. Large aperture...

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

 

Gary Wolstenholme takes a look at this lightweight 7.5x superzoom lens for EF-S compatible Canon cameras with Image Stabilisation.

Good resolution at optimum apertures; Lightweight design; Effective Image Stabiliser

Chromatic Aberrations at 18mm; Barrel distortion at 18mm; No lens hood supplied

For a budget superzoom, Canon's 18-135mm isn't that bad at all. It is capable of producing images with good sharpness across the frame at optimum apertures and the Image Stabiliser works very well. Sharpness isn't everything though, and owners of this...

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...
