Great Lens


from New Windsor, NY

Friends of mine talk me into getting this lens with the 60D body. I am glad they did. It does everything you would need for normal shooting for close and far objects.


Great Kit Lens


from Virginia

I got the lens when I purchased my Canon 60D. For being a kit lens this thing is a great value. Images are sharper than most other kit lenses I have used. The only negative thing I have to say about the lens is the amount of dust that can get inside of this lens is amazing.

Not For Anyone but the Pure Amateur


from Ohio

I purchased this lens in a kit along with my first Canon DSLR, the 60D. Just starting off, the lens satisfied me - its focal range is ideal but I wasn't quite sure what to look for quality-wise. As I have continued to use the lens, its low quality has started to become more and more apparent. The build is a bit weak; the focus ring has become loose and the silver design taping has begun to peel off. Additionally, the auto-focus speed isn't quite up to par. In post-processing especially, the low image quality stands out. There is a good deal of vignetting and warping around the edge of the image, noticeable aberration, and the images are of sub-optimal sharpness. In addition, zooming in to 5.6 can be painful in anything less than broad daylight. On the positive side, the IS makes this lens ideal for documentary-style filming, which I've done a good deal of. Anyone who considers themselves more than an amateur should consider investing more in a different lens for higher image quality and build.


A grat and timely purchase


from San Diego

I purchased a Canon 7D Mark II with this lens. I went to a surf contest the next weekend and shot well over 2000 pics for the day and both lens and camera performed flawlessly and I am very pleased with the pictures taken. A great purchase!!


Good Starter lens


from Undisclosed

This lens has a good focal range but with a constant vignetting problem. The auto focus works well in daylight, however searches too much in less adequate outdoor and indoor lighting situations. The lens is built well despite the other issues and would make a good starter lens. I like how this lens and other canon starter kit lenses have metal connection points to the lens bayonet, it increases durability when compared to lenses that have cheap plastic connection points.


Nice on clicking


from Dhaka, BD

Nice to have it in my bag for my Canon 60D. Can able to use for portraits and landscape.


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


from Gainesville, Fl  -  Casual Photographer

i'm pretty much an amateur user but like to take a lot of pictures. I have a Canon T4i. Have used a number of lenses in the past and find it a hassle to be constantly changing lenses. This gives me about the most versatility I could want. The focus is very fast and quiet. Have taken a few movies and seems to work very well. No problems at all so far. Arrived quickly and price was OK. Accessories work as expected.

My Favorite Canon Lens


from Los Angeles

I have seven Canon lenses and this is my favorite. 18 - 135 covers 95% of my photography. I also have the 18 - 200 but prefer the 18 - 135 for the lighter weight. In situations where 135 is not as much zoom as I'd like, I simply crop the photo to get the area I wanted to zoom in on. With an 18 megapixel T4i I can crop and expand a surprisingly small area and still have amazing quality in the finished photo. I travel a LOT, and this camera and lens go with me everywhere. I feel it is the best choice for a one lens travel kit. Lightweight but no compromise in picture quality. I have done extensive testing comparing my T4i with the 18-135 lens against a 5D Mark II with the 24 -105 L lens. Very little difference. You really have to crop and expand very small areas to find a difference.


Good replacement for kit lens


from South Carolina  -  Casual Photographer

I'm a casual amateur photographer. I photograph my children, landscapes and animals. The lens is a bit expensive, but it gives me greater range than the kit lens which I need for even casual photography. The lens is light and easy to use. It seems to focus quickly and accurately, but I've not used it indoors or in low light conditions. I've only had this lens a few weeks but I have not found anything I dislike. I gave it four stars simply because of the price. (It cost more than the camera.)


Great Standard use lens


from Brooklyn, New York  -  Photo Enthusiast

Love this lens, it's a wonderful everyday lens eliminates the need to swap out lens. I bought this one as a used lens, and haven't had any issue with it so far (D quality). The lens arrived in the stated condition. I've only been using it for a week, I replace my 18-55 lens, with this one. I shoot mostly outdoors, gives me everything I need and more out of a lens.Thanks Adorama!


Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Can this fit to any Canon SLR camera?
PEYRE L  It will only fit the Rebel series SLR. If you have a full size 35 mm camera the EF-S lens will not work.
ANDREA P  Is this kit the STM version? And if not does Adorama offer this kit with also with the 18-135mm STM?
HERBERT B  Not sure what a STM kit is, but if you're reffering to the cleaning & maintenance kit, it came with the lens. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.
ANDREA P  Thanks for your reply. I was referring to the newest 18-135mm lens which is an STM version.
