Product description

Product Description

Canon EF-S 18-200 mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Lens - Black.

Manufacturer's Description

Zoom lenses are very convenient. The equivalent of two or more fixed focal length lenses in one unit. The maximum aperture of some zoom lenses changes as you alter the focal length, but through-the-lens (TTL) metering takes this into account to give correct exposure.

Compact, lightweight 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 wide zoom ratio EF-S lens delivers excellent high-speed performance at an affordable price.

I'm only writing this to correct any mis-representation in previous reviews. Some people only write to complain...and aren't using the product correctly. This is a compromise lens, designed to cover a wide and commonly used focal range. As such it can't be optically 'perfect' but for the majority of peoples needs I believe it does the job superbly. I'm more than impressed with its optical performance. What it does provide is convenience and speed, great for taking those opportunist pictures that all too often seem to vanish whilst fiddling to change to other lenses of different focal length. It will be great for traveling and holidays as a 'one only' lens.
The image stabilisation is impressive and also works well with panning. Autofocus is fast although it lacks USM...which would have cost more. The build quality is much better than I expected...it is surprisingly chunky and weighty...and there are no untoward rattles! As stated, the image quality is good.
If I had one criticism it's a general Canon one...they never supply a lens hood for the price (unlike Nikon), and the lens specific hoods are always ridiculously over-priced for bits of plastic. Canon take note!
'Zoom creep' as described by another reviwer isn't really an issue, any more than with any other weighty zoom lens...even of 'L' quality. A zoom lock is built into the lens if required. I must say I haven't had to use it.
I have already had a photograph on local television with this lens within a couple of days of owning it. I think it's great...and no regrets.

I bought this for one reason. When travelling, I was forever missing shots whilst fumbling to change from the wide angle kit lens to my Sigma telephoto. This lens gives you the complete range of the two so you don't have to miss a shot without the risk of dust getting into the camera body while exposed.

Purists will argue that there are lens aberrations at the extremes of wide-angle and zoom. This may be true, but for the majority of users this will not be an issue and is more than compensated by the ability to do it all out of one lens. After all if you miss a shot because of changing lenses, lens aberrations are irrelevant. I cannot see any defects in the shots I have taken.

Others have spoken about the lens extending under its own weight, and this is true. However, you quickly learn to carry the camera by the lens or flick the zoom lock switch on /off with your middle / third finger so this really is not an issue.

In addition, the image stabilisation built into the lens can also sharpen images, reducing the need for a tripod - although that's still a necessity for extreme zoom and low light. Finally your camera bag will be a lot lighter, because you can leave the separate wide angle and zoom lenses behind. This lens is now permanently on my camera (Canon EOS) 450D.

I was looking for a lens that could be left on-camera pretty much full-time; one that covered the full range of focal lengths I felt I needed. The 18~200 EF-S is just such a lens, and given its wide zoom range it still manages to be reasonably 'fast' too. The disappointment of it not being a USM ring motor design faded quickly once I discovered how fast focusing is with this lens. Subjects instantly snap into focus. I haven't had the opportunity to try it with other camera bodies, but I doubt it would be sluggish on any other model.
The image stabilization is very impressive. It's so cool when you press the shutter-release half way and the jittery viewfinder image solidifies, or at least becomes more treacle-like. It won't make your tripod redundant, but it does improve handheld shooting considerably, especially at the 200mm end.
The lens does extend under its own weight, but why would this be a problem to anyone? Adding this lens to your camera does make it a heavy combination, so you'll likely be holding it by the lens as well as the camera anyway.
I haven't held the lens up to the rigeur of scientific scrutiny as far as optical performance goes. That's not really my thing. Life's too short. A very slight barrel distortion in my pics of Torremolinos wouldn't cause me any sleepless nights. I've taken lots of pictures with this lens and I'm more than happy with it.

Verified Purchase
Firstly, a short story. This lens and I have a chequered history: since it first went on sale in 2008 I've owned 4 of them! I sold the first one to get the Tamron 18-270, wasn't happy with it, so re-bought the Canon (2nd lens). Some time later Sigma released the 18-250, so I sold the Canon again. I kept the Sigma for a year or so, but then tried the Canon again when the 7D DSLR came out, and bought it again (3rd lens). Then Tamron released the 16-300 which offered a substantial range increase over the Canon, so I had that for a year. And in January 2016, I tried the Canon again, and bought it gain (4th lens).

Let's get this out of the way: any superzoom is going to be a lens of compromises. At 11x zoom range, this lens is no exception - it's not going to compete for image quality with the high-end Canon 'L' zooms, many of which are no more than 3x or 4x zoom range. Superzooms are perfect lenses to carry around on a small DSLR when travelling and space is at a premium, or for those short trips where photography isn't the primary goal, but you don't want to be without a decent camera.

Now that we've dealt with that, this is still the best superzoom available for the Canon format - and as you've read above, I've tested a lot of them. There are a lot of options to choose from in this market: Sigma have an 18-200, 18-250 and an 18-300; Tamron have an 18-270 and a 16-300; and of course Canon have this 18-200.

Looking at image quality in a little more detail, this is probably the only superzoom I'd willingly use wide open. As with other superzooms, sharpness does improve down to f/8 and the extremes of the zoom range do suffer edge softness to some extent.
