Horrible noise/color distortion

  • Excerpt: Yes, you heard it correctly. I shoot video (mostly indoors) and the noise and color distortion on this lens at the widest aperture (3.5-5.6, depending on your zoom), is just awful. I just shot a home for a client, and I made the mistake of using this lens.
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: Blurry Focus, Color Distortion, Color Striping, Horrible Noise, Poor in Low Light, Slow Focus

  • Conclusion: I got this lens with my 60D as a kit. The lens has better build than the cheapest plastic mount lenses, but rattles a lot and has loose front elements and doesn't feel very sturdy. I find that frequently the lens is much sharper with the IS turned OFF when shooting on a tripod.
  • Cons: Semi-sharp images, Poor build quality, unreliable focus

This is not a good lens

  • Summary: Come On Canon, you must be able to do better! This lens lacks the sharpness you would expect for a lens that is considered a progression from the standard kit lens supplied. I use a Canon 550D and to be honest the 18-55 IS lens in certain situations out performs the 18-135.

  • Excerpt: Купил пофотографировать на праздники. Это просто ужас. Такое впечатление, что резкого фото на нем получить невозможно в принципе. Настоятельно не рекомендую начинающим: отбивает всякое желание фотографировать. Продал через 3 дня.
  • Pros: Диапазон фокусных расстояний. Цена.
  • Cons: Качество изображения.

  • Excerpt: До этого не снимал на цифровую зеркалку,были пленочные аппараты Зенит и другие,потом фотик Фуджи 5500 с 10х зумом.Теперь вот купил 50D и взял этот объектив.Юзаю 3 дня и не могу придти в себя от изумления,что мой Фуджик,купленный 4 года назад за 7000р и весящий 300гр снимает лучше,чем не самый плохой...
  • Pros: Добротно сделан и это, пожалуй,все.
  • Cons: Отвратительная резкость,страшные искажения картинки,темный.
