PC Magazine

  • Conclusion: 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.
  • Pros: Silent motor. Smooth video focus with T4i. Optically stabilized.
  • Cons: Some distortion. Not quite as sharp as non-STM version of lens.

  • Summary: Canon's newly designed EF-S 18-135mm IS STM is slightly smaller that the previous version, with a few improvements as well. They have re-developed the IS system, allowing you 4 full stops of correction.
  • Pros: Solid and traditional Canon lens feel., Slightly smaller than the previous 18-135mm lens, IS system works as advertised, Silent and very low vibration AF is great for continuous AF video recording, Very easy to use, controls are smooth, Sharp images throughout aperture range, Affordable price tag
  • Cons: AF system, while smooth and quiet, is slightly slower than a USM lens, Some CA is easily visible in some of our sample images

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

photozone.de
2 November 2012
  • Conclusion: The Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 STM IS is a pretty obvious choice for those users seeking for a long universal range while keeping a very decent image quality. The new optical design with a large diameter UD element in the front lens group obviously makes a difference compared to its predecessor.

PhotoReview
23 July 2012
  • Summary: Slightly larger than its predecessor (which we reviewed in November,2009), the new EF-S 18-135mm f3.5-5.6 IS STM lens has been developed to match the EOS 650D and offers features to complement the camera's movie capabilities.
  • Pros: You want a general purpose lens for everyday shooting and it's offered with the EOS 650D body., You'd like a lens that requires no readjustment when you fit polarisers and graduated filters.

  • Excerpt: Не знаю, у кого как, но лично у меня всегда возникал вопрос: стоит ли при покупке новой тушки покупать кит или же лучше купить body и (за фактически те же деньги) недорогой, но светосильный «полтинник».
