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.
