Summary: very good lens,nice pictures,colors,well built...ect The lens is lightweight and takes nice pictures,in my opinion that's all you need to take with you if you are going on vacation.It's not as sharp as the "L" lens,but the picture quality is decent enough
Summary: I bought this lens to video kid activities. The lens is what I expected. It works great with my camera, especially for video. I have used it a number of times now, and am very happy with it. It is a good value for the money.
Summary: Sharpness is good for this range of zoom lenses. The image quality is not good as Canon EF 35mm f/2 but better than Canon EF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS. Focus speed is very good. I use it with Canon EOS SL1 (100D).
Summary: This is noticeably better in image quality than the original 18-135, still not L quality but great for family photographs. We use it paired up with the T4i and I would say that a professional or advanced amateur could see that this is not a pro lens, but your average snapshooter, would be very impressed. It really can breathe a lot of life into your family photos.
Summary: Compared to it's predecessor, the STM version is a bit of an improvement. This lens' biggest attributes are its size/weight and silent focusing operation. Its about a half inch shorter than the older model and the STM motor means quick and quiet focusing. On the short end at wide open (3.5) I found it to be a little weak (poor resolution & detail). This lens works very well stopped down. My 18-200 IS is much better wide open. Outdoors at F8 it works very well.
