Came only lens

  • Summary: Came only lens without accessories. Not known for what I overpaid. So I could just buy and only lens, spending less money on it.

Convenient but you loose quality

Pilbara, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I have used this lens on three holidays. Two to outback Australia and one to Italy. It is very convenient to have such a range without having to change lenses. But the compromise is quality and colour. I owned an EFS-17-85 with my 30D and I got this with my 50D.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight

200mm is NOT 200mm

suv, Canon
16 December 2010
  • Conclusion: I can live with all other shortcomings of the lens (distortion, vignetting, lack of sharpness etc) for the sake of the huge 18-200mm zooming range. But, I did some testing, and found that the zooming range is not a true 18-200mm.
  • Cons: focal length is not accurate

  • Excerpt: This was the first lens I ever bought for my Rebel XS. I wanted to upgrade for the kit lens to have a greater focal range than the standard 18-55mm lens. This lens is defiantly a super zoom lens, and on 1.6x sensor it's the equivalent of a 29mm to 320mm lens; a nice multipurpose range.

Good Overall Lens, But Disappointed in Quality

Stephanie P., Newegg
7 November 2010
  • Summary: I do not recommend this lens - I recommend saving your money and buying a higher quality lens.
  • Pros: A great lens to bring along if you only have one, because it offers a nice range of focal lengths. I've brought it on many trips.
  • Cons: Disappointing quality. I'm fairly active and this lens goes with me on many outdoor activities. I've had to take it in for repair twice, when there has been friction with zoom in/out, and the lens lock functionality failed. I expected better quality from a lens at this price point.

Broke after 1 year

Will in Seattle, Amazon
8 February 2010
  • Summary: I was a fan of this lens until recently. I shoot a fair bit, even sell stock and found the quality of shots produced with this lens acceptable, even for stock, which can be picky. It's a very nice range for walkabout and the IS is quite good.
