good for learning, not for pro use.

  • Excerpt: Ive got my 18-135 as a kit with a t3i last year. For a beginner upgrading from a smartphone or a p&s, this lens will yield amazing results. BUT, when you upgrade your selection to L-glass, you can be dissapointed with the quality of this lens. I always fear that my af will break because I forget to turn the af to manual. the build quality feels plasticy. Af is loud but it is actually fast. IS is silent and great. Image quality does suffer from CA and color fringing.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
  • Cons: Lens Creep, Poor in Low Light

I'm Upgrading

  • Conclusion: I bought this when I bought my 50D last spring. I travel and need a good travel lens. What I found is that this lens focusing capability was sluggish, especially in low light/flash and when at a greater focal distance. It struggles to focus in these conditions. There is a distortion around the edges that I don't like either. So...since I have my first big job coming up, I am going to trade up to a nicer lens ( or two).
  • Pros: inexpensive, lightweight
  • Cons: soft focusing, autofocus doesn't function well in low-light, auto-focus sluggish at telephoto end, doesn't have distance measure on body

18-135 lens, have concerns

photoeye, Canon

  • Conclusion: I've been shooting digital as an amateur for 15 years. Stepping into the Canon world I bought a 60D with this kit lens. I thought I would like the reach plus wide angle. I got this but I am very disappointed with the quality of the pictures. Color saturation is only OK, there's no snap to the results. I have reset the camera in different ways to increase saturation, changed other settings, etc, but still disappointed. Compared to the 18-55 kit lens this one falters.
  • Pros: good walk round lens
  • Cons: disappointing quality
