Canon EF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS

Available Today

With this lens, Canon gives us a 10x zoom for the EF-S mount ((EOS T4i, 7D, 60D) cameras.

Its 4-stop equivalent IS provides an excellent one-lens solution for vacation or walk-around shooting. The lens definitely has a bit of barrel distortion at the wide end, and while it has excellent center sharpness, it gets a bit soft around the edges. In other words, it’s what you might expect from a good 10x zoom.

Only Works With: Canon crop sensor cameras (EOS T4i, 7D, 60D etc…)

Does Not Include: Hood

Let’s face it: a superzoom is kind of like a moped. It’s practical, reliable transportation and can be a lot of fun, but you feel a little embarrassed when a Harley pulls up next to you at a stop light.

This is a practical, reliable and extremely convenient lens with pretty decent image quality. I take it on vacation with a T4i quite a bit for a one-lens, one-camera solution. Although, I then cringe when someone stands next to me with a 5DMkII and a 70-200 f/2.8 IS then looks over at me with that smug look. I try really hard not to say something stupid like “I left my 500 f/4 L at home this trip.”
