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

Available Today

The Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM is a multi-purpose zoom lens designed for use with Canon crop sensor cameras like the Canon EOS T4i and 60D. The Ultra-Low Dispersion element, Aspherical element, and optimized lens coatings provide high resolution images with minimal optical flaws.

The Dynamic IS feature and STM focusing motor makes it an ideal wide-angle lens for both video and stills. With compatible cameras (Canon EOS T4i), it allows smooth, continuous Servo focusing during video recording. It is an inner focusing lens (meaning the barrel does not extend and front element doesn’t rotate during focusing), bringing high-quality performance to a consumer-friendly lens.

Only Works With: Crop sensor cameras (T4i, 7D, 60D etc…)

It’s a nice lens. A very nice video lens. If you want a decent lens to cover a wide focal range, it’s a better choice than a 10x superzoom from an image quality standpoint. But it’s not as good as a smaller range zoom.

Unfortunately, many people want “great image quality in one lens that will cover everything”. That’s a lot like having a bumper sticker that says “honk if you love peace and quiet”.
