Wary when first offered as a 50D kit lens

Hello, When I went to pick up my 50D our dealer informed us of two kit lens available, the 28-135mm IS and the new 18-200mm IS.

Hello, When I went to pick up my 50D our dealer informed us of two kit lens available, the 28-135mm IS and the new 18-200mm IS. Since I already own a 28-135mm IS,16-35mm L, 28-70mm L, 28-300mm IS L, 70-300mm IS, 70-200mm IS 2.8L, 100-400mm IS 4.5L, 50mm 1.4 lens, and an 800mm IS 5.6L, my wife purchased as a surprise birthday gift, I was pondering whether to also purchase the new 18-200mm IS. Fortunately, I decided to take the 50D with the 18-200mm IS lens package. Upon getting home I anxiously put the lens on and took hundreds of shots along the beach fronting our yard. I have no regrets with the lens option and it seems as if it'll be my most used walk around lens. Off the subject, my wife and daughter also got me the new 5D II with the 24-105mm IS 4L package last week and that lens on the 5D seems like the combination was made for each other. Both are excellent walk around lens with their low weight, sharpness, quick focusing, and their IS properties. Of course, for specialized photo situations our other Canon lens are better suited when I need the zoom power, special situations, or for indoor portraits. My only and biggest gripe with Canon is they don't allow access to where we can purchase their proprietary apparel especially for men, such a shirts, windbreakers, caps, visors, product decals, etc. other wise I'd rate them a lot higher.

200mm is NOT 200mm

I can live with all other shortcomings of the lens (distortion, vignetting, lack of sharpness etc) for the sake of the huge 18-200mm zooming range. But, I did some testing, and found that the zooming range is not a true 18-200mm. For example, I set the lens at 200mm, and took pictures focusing at a series of distances (4 ft, 5 ft, 10 ft, 20ft). When focusing 4 ft away, the 200mm focal length was found to be actually only 110mm. Similarly, the 200mm is actually 115mm (at 5 ft), 136mm (at 10 ft...

Sorry for the disappointment if you think you have a 200mm lens, Also, the zoom range is not 11x as it is commonly called. Just shot an object at 4 ft away with your lens set at 18mm and 200mm, and compare the two sizes. You will find the size ratio is only about 7x, NOT 11x. People who are reading this, you don't have to believe me; just do it yourself, or compare the lens with any other lens (for example Canon 55-250mm).

Does a Nice Job

By

I haven't used this lens much, but so far I have been very pleased with it. It seems a little heavy, but I need just a single lens to carry on travels. So far I have nothing bad to say about the lens.

superb value , maximum coverage

By

My first DSLR was the Canon kit which included the 60D w/ the 18-200 Lens. I still own the lens, but not the camera. I've read all of the reviews, and would like to say that the cons on this lens are not a big deal, and easy to live with, considering what this lens does, especially for the money!! And YES, if you take care of your things, it makes all the difference in the world. This lens may not take the abuse that other more expensive lenses do. I don't consider this lens a poor build at all, it's just not an "L" lens, which causes some to rate it down. I now use it on my 7d and love it. I also own a 5d mrk III. The lenses I own are: (all Canon) EF-S 15-85 / 18-135 / 18-200 EF "L" 16-35 @ F-2.8 "L" 24-70 @ F-2.8 "L" 24-105 @ F-4

Great general purpose lens

By

I bought this lens in Oct, 2008 to replace the Canon 28-135. I like the longer focal length so I do not have to change lenses. Less chance of getting dust on the sensor. After 5 1/2 yrs of using it, I have had no problems to speak of. Barrel is still very tight, very very few specks of dust in the lens. I and my wife travel extensively and the lens is always used. Auto focus is as fast as with the lens with the USM. Some people complain about chromatic abberation, however I have not had any problems with that even with enlargements. Yes, there is lens creep but then if you know that up front, which a person should from looking at the lens prior to buying it, then it is not a problem. Quality wise it is not an L lens but then neither is the price. If people take care of their equipment and don't abuse it, then the lens should last a long long time or until Canon comes out with an upgrade you would want. I have used this lens with the T1i, T2i, 60D, and now the 70D.

Not particularly good

By

I've had this lens for about a month. I've used it for some landscape, some street pictures around town and some shots of flower gardens and macro photos of flowers. I've used it on a 50D body and a T3i body about equally. I've shot three or four hundred frames with it. Overall, I'd say that it's a pretty mediocre lens. Photozone.de has described it as "substandard". It is reasonably sharp at the center of the frame at all focal lengths, but it is very soft at the edges at both ends of the focal length range. The edges only get reasonably sharp in the middle of the range and when stopped down to f/8-f/11. It has high chromatic aberration at both ends of the focal length range and very high vignetting, as well. It's main claim to fame is the wide range of focal lengths. The focus is also reasonably quick and accurate. I never noticed any focus problems. Having said all of this, it is possible to take acceptable pictures with it. I'm going to use it for snapshot type photos and when I want to travel light, and only want to take a single body and lens. It'll be for when I am more interested in recording where I have been than in getting the best quality images. I bought this lens used from Adorama. It was rated by them as "D" grade and I was very impressed with the packing and quality. It arrived wrapped in three layers of bubble wrap and in pristine condition. If it had come out of a Canon box, I would have thought it was new. So, I'm completely happy with the Adorama service.

Great Perchase

By

This lens has become my favorite to use. I use it for a bit of everything from landscape to weddings and everything in between. though I dislike the fact that the lens will not stay at the zoom I am at if I tip the camera forward even slightly.

a great lens - just wish it reached 250

By

A great lens - I love using it. although it is marginally on the heavier side. my only real complaint is i miss the fact that it doesn't reach till 250 like the sigma lens does...

Great Zoom Lens

By

Bought this lens with a 60D camera 18 months ago. Wanted something that would work for most shooting situations. Do not like switching lenses. This is a great lens for anyone that wants to use just one lens to shoot in almost every situation they encounter. Has worked out great. Have taken over 2000 pictures so far. Could not be more satisfied. Yes the lens does creep. Yes it is a little heavy. So far these have not been major problems. Would recommend this for anyone who wants to take great photos.

Professional allrounder

By

This is a good lens for my general use as a professional architect. The weight gives balance to steady freehand shots. Substantial lens creep is the only drawback as there is not allways a time for using the lock.

Outstanding Lens

By

When I first bought this lens I was slightly disappointed in the photo quality. But as I have become more familiar with its high & lows in setting with camera I have discovered it capabilities and have exploited on them and it has become one of my favorites for a single carry lens whenever I travel short or long distance. Nice lens for the price.

all purpose lense that I use when I do not feel like carrying heavier lenses

Questions about this item:

rachel y  does this lens work on a FULL FRAME camera? like the 6D?
DONALD H  Rachel- I currently use my Cannon EF-S 18-200mm lens on the Canon 60D full frame camera and it works beautifully. This camera has a c-chip sensor, so you get effectively a lens with 1.4x the stated power. This means the 18-200 becomes an 25-2;80 lens, thus giving you even more magnification without the linear distortion of 18mm close up lens.
rachel y  Hi! Thank you! Just checking-- do you mean your 6D or 60D? I bought a lens that was made for crop sensor cameras and I had to return it and now im struggling!

Mary R  pI am an amateur photographer so soe of my questions are going to be basic. Will this lens work on my Canon 30D? Also will this lens allow me to take better shots of the wildlife around my house? Lastly, what is the best add on light source that has a buffer attached to it? Thank you - mmr
NEREIDA T  You should check if it works with your camara in canon's web site. If you are planning to use this lens to take pictures of birds, this is not for you, you need at least a 300mm. However, I love this lens, I use it all the time when I walk in the forest.
