    Compact, slightweight and a wide magnification range - this standard zoom lens features a wide focal length range from normal to telephoto equivalent to 29-320mm in the 35mm format. It features an Optical Image Stabilizer for up to 4-stops of effective correction even at full zoom. Since Canon's optical image stabilization system is in the lens, not in the camera, you can see the stabilized, steadier images through the viewfinder. And the circular aperture can give beautiful background blur effects. This new wide zoom ratio EF-S lens delivers excellent high-speed performance at an affordable price.

    I have been using this lens over a year now and it has an intimate relationship with my XSi (soon to be T2i). At 18-30mm this lens is extremely useful for crowded places and where space is tight. At 50-80mm It has resulted in some of the best people pics I've taken and is also great for architecture, landscape and local critters. And for those times (think zoo, outdoor parties, beyond fences & walls) the 200mm reaches places that I cannot actually touch. The stabilization is a fantastic feature for these long shots as well and when coupled with a 1.4x teleconverter you've got even more capabilities. Given the resolution of most of the EOS line, cropping the image after the fact can result in some really dramatic pictures. The lens does have a tendency to walk (move by itself) when tilted at more than a 30-45 degree angle. If you are hand-holding your camera then this is less of an issue. However, if you are using a tripod and shooting up (birds, two-row panoramas, moon) or down with a remote shutter release or the timer then you'll need to be more mindful. Like I said at the beginning, this is the lens that spends most of the time on my camera. It is what I had hoped for when I bought it and it has fulfilled it's promise of versatility, quality, and all-around value.

    So I'm not quite sure how to rate this. I bought it solely so I didn't have to take my professional quality L lenses on vacation to the mountains camping, or just out when we go see family and that. I feel more comfortable leaving the big $$ lenses at home. So I knew when i ordered it I wasn't going to have the same quality. I knew that going in. So here are my thoughts. I found the auto focus to be quick and quiet. It focused where I wanted it to. Now, I manual focus probably 95% of the time, but when I got it, i played around with the auto focus just to see how it reacted, and I was rather pleased. As far as the quality of image, I have found that when i am shooting distance the images turn out sharp. The closer I get, the softer the images become. Again, I knew I wouldn't be shooting with an L quality lens, but I was a little disappointed with the softness that it is providing. But, it's not so bad that it is going to ruin a family picture. You aren't going to be entering a major competition with the results. You can get some pretty good "macro" style shots. Always remember you can crop as close as you want, and depending on what camera you are using, you can probably crop even closer than others. So, for the money, i would like it to be a little sharper on the closer shots, but like i say, it isn't a deal breaker. Over all it's a fun lens. I don't have a need for any other lens when i take it out to use it for my purposes. For a professional lens, i would say save your money and get an L series. Always get the best lens as you'll be getting one eventually. I have a 28-135 that provides a much sharper image, but this is still a very nice entry level lens.

    Great for travel and everyday use

    Comments about CANON U.S.A., INC. Canon 2752B002 EF-S 18�200mm f/3.5�5.6 IS Lens:

    Bought this lens on the advice of the salesman. Was concerned about the weight, but that has not been a problem. I keep this lens on the camera all the time and rarely take it off. Great for taking shots in a car while on the road. Never use the flash indoors and it takes great natural light portraits at family reunions, functions, etc. Have even used it indoors in museums where flash is not permitted and gotten great shots. I have even gotten great wedding pictures without any camera distraction! Best sales advice ever and glad I bought it!

    Excellent Lens

    By JohnHW

    from Gautier, MS, United States

    Comments about CANON U.S.A., INC. Canon 2752B002 EF-S 18�200mm f/3.5�5.6 IS Lens:

    My wife gave me this lens for Christmas 5 yrs ago to go with my recently purchased Rebel t2i. Since receiving this lens I rarely use any other lens. I shoot indoors and outdoor. Landscapes and people; stills and action. I love this lens. I am planning on purchasing a 7D and will carry this lens with me. I wish Canon would continue to make this 18-200 or 18-300 range lens in an up graded lens, fixing the lens creep.

    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.

        Comments about CANON U.S.A., INC. Canon 2752B002 EF-S 18�200mm f/3.5�5.6 IS Lens:

        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

            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.

              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.

                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.

                  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.

                        This is a great walkaround lens. It takes suitably clear and sharp photos and can go from sem-wide angle to a good zoom quickly with quick focus. So I like the lens. What I don't like is the lens creep. I've put up with it because I don't have the warranty card (don't know if I EVER had one!). Don't know what lens creep is? You know how you walk around taking shots, with the camera over your shoulder, and the lens creeps out to its max zoom if you don't have it on lock? Or, using the Canon 60D with its vari-angle LCD monitor that you can twist around so you can focus on your target while holding your camera up over the target - but you can't do that because the lens creeps down to full zoom when you want it to stay at 50mm? I've read this on other reviews so have sort of let it go. I have an EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM that I've never had this problem with. Trouble is, Canon doesn't have any other lenses with this versatility other than the 18-200 that I'm complaining about now. So wake up, Canon! If you can do a superb EF 70-300mm, why not do a superb EF 18-100mm?
