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

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

Who It’s For:

This is Canon’s newest all purpose lens. This lens will have a better range than the standard kit lens for most Canon’s and will have better build quality as well. So, if you don’t want the kit lens and want to spend a little bit more money for better range and better build quality, this is the lens for you.

What We Like:

IS: Canon says 4 stops difference. I’d definitely agree, also for the first time there’s what is known as Dynamic IS, which is used for movie stabilization.

Movie Servo Compatibility: Shooting with the new T4i? You’ll be able to autofocus with this lens while shooting movies.

Size: This lens is very compact and great for small cameras.

Range: The 18-135mm focal range is all most people need on a DX format camera. Definitely a great all purpose lens.

Price:  Bundled with the T4i, this lens is very competitively priced for what you get.

What We Don’t:

Build Quality: As an entry level lens, the quality is going to feel a little plasticy and not as solid as more expensive lenses.
