  • Conclusion: 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.
  • Pros: Very sharp. Long zoom range. Optically stabilized.
  • Cons: Lacks STM capability. Some distortion.

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

Camera Labs

  • Summary: 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. Now the EF-S 18-135mm IS slots in-between in terms of price for those who want something classier than the budget model without breaking the bank. It's a great idea, but one that's been a long time coming.
  • Pros: 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.
  • Cons: 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).

  • Excerpt: 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 a very nice IS (Image Stabilization) implementation.

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

  • Summary: 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 length range equivalent to 29-216mm in 35mm format, the EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS covers both wide enough angles for landscape photography and is narrow enough for portraiture and sports photography.
  • Pros: 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 good flatness of field., You need close focusing and macro capabilities.
