The Canon 18-135mm STM is a an excellent do-everything lens through effortlessly silent und extremely schon fast autofocusing

The enlarge 18-135mm EF-S ist lens was ns only lens ich needed zu shoot everything zum two weeks an Maui an 2010. Through this one lens ~ above a Canon 1.6x camera, you"re done.

I never ever needed any other lens for anything, und this 18-135mm ist easy zu pack, handle and shoot. Sie never need to take that off your camera. As proficient photographers know, if sie can"t record it with 135mm on small format (equivalent to nur over 200mm ~ above full-frame), a longer lens won"t conserve you: freundin need to get closer! in other words, don"t worry around this lens "only" going to 135mm instead des 200mm. If 135mm isn"t lang enough, nothing wollen be.

This new STM lens is in inch shorter und adds a zoom lock and instant manual-focus override to the older 18-135mm EF-S ist lens, however manual focus ist electronic. Ns focus runden isn"t connected zu anything, und there is a small time delay between when sie move the ring and the lens moving. Ns speed punkt which the lens move isn"t directly related kommen sie how far or how schon fast you turn the ring, dafür it"s weird. It"s notfall as great as having a ja wirklich manual focus ring like ns 15-85mm, 17-55mm or 17-85mm.

Another large improvement from die older 18-135mm EF-S ist is that die zoom variety from 24mm to 18mm has actually been spread-out on die zoom ring, dafür it"s much easier zu set specific wide-angle framing. Top top the alt lens, it was very cramped at die wide end.


As a Canon EF-S lens, this 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 STM works just with Canon"s mini-format (1.6x) digital SLRs.

It zu sein useless zum 35mm, full-frame and 1.3x cameras; that won"t also mount top top them.

Overall power top

The Canon 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 STM is a handy, mobiltelefon lens zum everything.

Its zoom range abdecken everything i might need.

Autofocus performance top

Autofocus ist silent and super-fast. Die lens" motor zu sein completely silent, much quieter than die 40mm f/2.8 STM.

Auto/Manual Switching

Just take the ring at any time an ONE SHOT zum instant manual-focus override.

Only move ns AF-MF switch kommen sie MF zu lock it into manual focus.

AF Speed

AF Accuracy and Consistency

I always gott perfect autofocus ~ above a Canon T4i.

Does focus hold when zoomed?

No; focus drifts as zoomed, dafür focus after ~ zooming.

Manual focus

Manual focus is electronic.

It only works if ns camera is on and awake.

The focus ring is merely bei input to a computer, which climate moves die lens as it sees fit. Therefore, i m so sad there ist a slim delay in response, and the really speed von the emphasis never rather matches what you"re trying zu do.

Video autofocus on die T4i

This lens on die T4i offers die best DSLR videobilien autofocus I"ve however experienced, however it"s still not as an excellent as a camcorder.

Video Sample Files power top

Here"s a sample 25MB videobilien clip, do with the T4i weist It aussehen very good, wie man it"s in focus.

Here"s another 19MB file von Ryan defying fatality with ns same settings, und at this speeds, it blieb tracks just fine. It take it a while for Ryan kommen sie wait zum me zu get emphasis reasonably locked before ich started zu roll, however once locked and rolling, it worked fine.

In every fairness, while various other DSLRs are nearly useless zum making video with autofocus of things that move (the totality point of video), ns video und autofocus von the T4i through this lens zu sein pretty useful. It möchte catch my kids doing most jene other 보다 running around an circles.

There zu sein no sound from die lens while it focuses, whoo hoo!
