Great Lens! Posted by: from: hurst, tx on i did a lot of research before buying another lens and i bought this one and i am very happy. this is the only lens i will probably ever need. it is a little expensive but it is definately worth it. i tried the tamron lenses and there was no comparison on the speed of the lens and the coloring plus the tamron i tried didn't have IS built in. This is the perfect all around lens that will let you take professional pictures at an amateur level. my wife could tell right away. depth of field is good in whatever you are trying to do. i can get the blurry background really good when you zoom in on something!

Very versatile lens but compromised image quality Posted by: from: Boston on I purchased this lens along with a Canon T2i, and they performed well together. I went for this particular lens for the versatility, I only wanted to take a single lens on my recent vacation, and this covered all my requirements in terms of focal length extremely well. If you are very fussy about your pictures though, this may not be the lens for you. To achieve that large zoom range, the optics have suffered. The biggest issue is chromatic aberration at both extremities of the zoom range. Next is softness in the corners. However, if you keep it stopped down, and use RAW file formats and process the pictures afterwards to remove the CA, you get acceptable results. Overall its a winner due to its versatility, I would buy it again.

Good carry around lens Posted by: from: Middletown, USA on I bought this lens to replace carrying my kit and zoom lens when not needed while travalling. It takes the place of my 18-55mm kit lens and 75-300mm zoom lens. It covers those same range distances but is not as good in low light, nor are the pics as sharp at the furthest zoom range. But within it's limitations it takes great pics and I am satisfied with it. At 1st it felt heavy, but as I got use to using it, I stopped noticing it. I bought a holster case with shoulder strap that my camera will fit in with this lens attached. It's so nice to not have to lug around my big bag and my other lens. No need to change lens for closeups and farther zoom shots. The lens seems to be good quality and is a joy to use. I wish I could have got this lens in my bundle when I got my Canon T3i, but it was not included. I'd read that Sigma makes a much cheaper version but I decided to stick with Canon after I tried the Sigma lens and didn't like it. Maybe the Sigma lens I tried was defective, I dunno. But from some reviews I've read, this Canon lens out performed the Sigma. I'm happy with this lens.

Nice range, expensive Posted by: from: Baltimore, MD on I bought this to replace the kit lens (18-55) that came with the Rebel camera I purchased. It was a toss-up between this and the 55-250 lens. I chose this only because I thought it would be better not to be switching lenses back and forth depending on the situation. The quality isn't fantastic. I'd say the lens qualtiy and construction is nearly the same as the 18-55. It's great for nature and wildlife images when you don't necessarily have the time to switch up your gear.

Great Lens!! Posted by: from: Long Island, NY on Some of the reviews out there beat this lens up....Saying it not as sharp as they would like it to be. Remeber this is not an "L" lens! It does take great shots at all focal lengths and is a one lens fits all occasions. It is a great walkaround/vacation lens. Its IQ is very good and I am very satisfied for the price. You will not regret this purchase!

That´s the lens for you fell no more an amauter Posted by: from: Campinas- Brazil on I have just replaced my preferred lens (18-55 and 19-35mm) by this one, and it is amazing the versatility that I had during my vacation with my family. I was able to take the right scene and momentum, widening or closing the zoom on at my kids. It´s worthy for a daddy!! Canon at this time, surpassed my expectatives even been more expensive, but it has a smooth and fast zoom motor, 3.5-5.6 giving more sensibility to indoor shots. It is heavy, but for all the pros I gained, it deserves a good evaluation.

Primary Lens Posted by: from: Richmond, VA on I started out with the 18-55mm lens. I had been using it for 1 year and realized it wasn't as versatile. Not doing much research, I purchased the 70-300mm. I think I should have made a wiser decision with the 70-300 but I didn't. I finally purchased the 18-200 after 2 years and what a fool I was. This lens should be sold with every camera. Its good for both short and long range, easy to transport, and can capture any moment you can imagine. A little heavy but manageable. If your getting a camera that comes with the 18-55, see if you can purchase just the body and purchase this lens. Trust me!

SUPERB lens in so many ways Posted by: from: Waynesburg, Penna. on This lens permits flexibility, ease of operation, and provides exceptional clarity and preciseness. I used this one lens to shoot over 750 shots at a wedding and reception. No more of fumbling around for other lens. It is compact and unobtrusive. It is very fast to focus and as all CANON lens are, the quality comes out in every photograph. This is the ONE lens I would recommend everyone purchase PRIOR to purchasing all the other zoom lens. This focal length permits candid photography opportunities from a distance as well as posed photos close up. FOR the money, it is the best money I have ever spent on lens, and I have several. I suggest take your CANON Camera to the store, put this lens on your camera, and shoot some photos. THIS lens sells itself!!!!

Great Lens for Price Posted by: from: Utah on I bought this Lens for my Canon T3i and so far I just love it, I have captured some great images ( when I do my job right) and love the fact that it shoots very good wide angle out to the full 200mm. I have the 18-55mm that came with the Camera and a 70-300mm that I bought later. I should have bought the Camera body only then put this lens on it. The F3.5 makes it a bit faster so for the price it is well worth it when you see the price jump to get an F2.8 or better.

Longest waited super-zoom EF-S lens Posted by: from: Portland, OR on This lens replaces the 18-55mm IS lens I have on my Rebel XSi, I have been waiting for this lens for quite a long time, carrying 2 lens and change them just too much hassle for me. Besides the 11x zoom, I also like its 2 UD Glass usually found in Canon's "L" lens. I would not mind to pay extra $200 if Canon would add USM and dust and moisture resistant to this lens to make it near "L" lens level. Finally the lens hood is expensive if you can find it at all.
