Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Overview

A flexible zoom designed for both stills and video recording, the EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Lens from Canon is a 28.8-216mm equivalent wide-to-tele zoom designed for APS-C-format DSLRs. Benefitting multimedia image-makers, an STM stepping motor is used to deliver quick, quiet and smooth focusing performance that works in conjunction with select cameras' Movie Servo AF. An optical image stabilization system is also featured, to minimize the appearance of camera shake, and Dynamic IS specifically supports video applications by compensating for camera shake caused while walking during recording. Besides these performance attributes, the lens' optical design also incorporates one aspherical element and one UD element to reduce both spherical and chromatic aberrations for increased sharpness, clarity, and color accuracy.

The product comes supplied in a plain white box, instead of the manufacturer's packaging. It includes all the manufacturer's accessories.

Wide-to-tele 18-135mm lens, this EF-S-mount zoom is designed for APS-C-format DSLRs and provides a 28.8-216mm equivalent focal length range.
One PMo aspherical element is featured to reduce spherical aberrations for increased sharpness and reduced distortion throughout the zoom range. One Ultra Low Dispersion element is also included in the optical design to minimize chromatic aberrations for improved clarity and color fidelity.
Optimized lens coatings have been applied to reduce lens flare and ghosting for increased contrast when working in strong lighting conditions.
The STM stepping AF motor works in conjunction with select camera's Movie Servo AF mode to offer notably quiet and smooth focusing performance that is well-suited to video applications. This focusing motor also benefits from an internal focusing mechanism for quick and responsive performance to benefit stills shooting, too.
Optical image stabilization minimizes the appearance of camera shake to better enable working in low-light conditions. Additionally, Dynamic IS can be used during movie recording to control camera shake and ensure steady shots while walking or moving.
Rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.
A zoom ring lock prevents the lens from accidentally extending during travel or storage.

Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Reviews

Great Lens

By Kyle
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-03-11

I've been looking for a wide angle FOV that can zoom some for when I go into the woods. This will be a great everyday lens and will have great use when in a tree stand to photograph/film wildlife. Solid build and no zoom creep without the lock on. Enjoying this lens so far and looking forward to a lot more!

Great lens to use as an all around day to day lens.

This lens is very flexible. It goes from a very wide angle lens to a mid-range telephoto lens all with extreme clarity. I have used it indoors and out. If you are into birding or other extreme range photography you will need a longer telephoto lens, but this does everything else extremely well.

This lens is my new favorite lens. While the autofocus is a little slow, it does take an amazing picture. Additionally, this lens is slightly heavier than my other lenses but for me that is not a problem.

Wide range

My husband gave me this lens for my birthday for my Canon 90D, just before we went to the mountains and it didn't disappoint me. I am an enthusiast and really enjoy landscape and wildlife photography and this lens fits the bill.

Why didn't I think B&H years ago?

By Alan

I have the basic Canon Stock Lens 18-55mm and a Canon Zoom Lens 55-250mm. So now I have a bit of each and for the most part no further need to carry two lenses. The 10-135mm is all I need for most situations and is now my default goto lens. I was concerned about a bit higher price from B&H, but they made me feel good about my purchase. And wilh all of the feedback I received about B&H and their Excellent Customer Service, the extra I think I paid was and still is worth it. It's like buying an Apple product. Many folks call it the Apple Tax, but who does one call when you have PC/Microsoft issue? B&H is the benchmark for service in the retail Photo industry (and for many other products and industries as well). As far as getting the White Box product vs the manufacturer's packaging, as long as the product and the service is there, I'm good!
