Canon 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 overview

  • 1Description

The EF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Lens from Canon is a compact, lightweight and very versatile zoom lens that is specifically designed for the range of APS-C format EOS DSLR cameras with the EF-S lens mount. Combining powerful performance with high image quality, this lens offers the equivalent focal length range of 29-320mm in 35mm format. It is ideal as a general-purpose zoom lens, providing coverage from a wide angle to a telephoto perspective.

The EF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS lens incorporates Canon's 4-stop compensation Image Stabilizer technology. This allows the use of shutter speeds up to 4 times slower with no perceptible increase in image blur. Aspherical and UD lens elements minimize aberrations and contribute to overall image quality and fine delineation. A zoom lock lever holds the zoom in place at its widest point so that it does not extend while not in use. A wide rubberized zoom ring provides smooth and comfortable control over focal length adjustment.

Note: Compatible with cameras that have APS-C size sensors

Image Stabilizer
4 stop Image Stabilizer (IS) extends low light options to previously unavailable levels. Photographers normally shooting handheld at 1/250 sec can switch on IS to obtain a similarly steady and blur-free result with a shutter speed of just 1/15 second. Image blur in low light and at long telephoto lengths is significantly reduced.
Superior Image Quality
Two UD (Ultra-low Dispersion) elements and several aspherical elements are used to suppress the effects of secondary chromatic aberrations, to obtain crisp, sharp, high-contrast images without fringing throughout the zoom range.
Super Spectra Coatings
Optimized Super Spectra lens coatings and lens element shaping, suppress flare and ghosting. Coatings also help achieve true color balance and increase contrast for vivid hi-fidelity images.
Zoom Ring Lock Lever
The zoom ring can be locked in place at its widest focal length in order to prevent the lens from physically extending while not in use.

    Canon 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 reviews

    EF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Lens is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 501.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very convenient The best camera and lens are the camera and lens that with you when you need to take a picture. This lens may not be the best lens ever made by Canon, but it has a very special place in my heart. Whenever I go out with my wife and daughter, especially when heading to a new location, I will bring this lens with me instead of my EF 40mm or my EF-S 60mm. This lens is the reason why I have not bought a 70-200mm lens yet. This is because I don't want to be swapping lens or miss a shot because 70mm is too long. Some of the shots of my daughter are the get it now or forget about it shots. For this type of shooting, the 18-200mm range is perfect.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from My 18-200 Review Many great things about this lens, zoom, speed of focus, compact size verses zoom. Once in a while the auto focus get's confused on trickier shots, but the manual override can fix that when necessary. It's a heavy lens and the zoom slides out when pointed down if you don't have it locked, which wouldn't be terrible but the zoom lock is very poorly designed and cumbersome to use. Apparently a screw came out inside my lens, which I learned is a known issue. Canon will be repairing it at no cost to me. If all is well following the repair, I would rate this lens as a must have for the casual to semi serious photographer. It's a "one-lens" solution for me.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A very good all rounder lens Buying this lens will save you a lot of $$$$ and the hassle of switching lenses. This lens is just a perfect lens for me .. Earlier I used to to carry two lenses the 18-55mm and the 75-250mm but realized I never used the 75-250mm zoom lens in the same trip as it was painful to switch lenses. With this 18-200 I am so happy that i get the zoom that I need without the news to switch lenses. What I don't like about the lens is the weight, the basis design flaw where the lens creeps out due to its own weight and the slow / inaccurate focus speed. Having said that even with all these flaws it is a superb lens and I just love it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great All Around lense This is a great all around lense to keep on the camera where medium light and zoom might be necessary. I've taken this on many trips because of the versatility and relatively compactness all in one lense. Takes great photos and the 200 zoom is very handy for my needs. I have used this for sports and does relatively well in bright lighting but use the 70 - 200 2.8 lense for all other important low light , fast sports photography shots as this lense suffers for fast low light. The lenses after 2 months creeps and won't stay in place but for the overall versatiitly and compactness I just use the lock for the lense when not in use.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good all-around lens I've taken many amazing pics with this lens and others not so much. The auto focus is spot on about 95% of the time, but at other times I switch to manual just to make sure. Auto focus is very quick and works well with rapid fire shots. I have no complaints about the image quality. The lens is pretty heavy and large, but if I'm only taking one lens with me it has to be this one. It is very shock resistant. I'm a mountaineer and have taken this up many peaks while banging it against rocks (on accident of course). The picture quality has not suffered in the least. Excellent lens for anyone who wants to own just one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile Lens This lens is one of the canon package options when buying a DSLR and that is a great time to get it! I chose it for the added versatility over the other option (18-55 or 18-135) and for only $100 more. Ultimately you will get a $$lens for around $300 when buying as a package. It is a 72mm front element which allows for great light and color depth. In addition it's versatile and if you are thinking about making the purchase when starting out, it may help prevent you from having to buy multiple lenses at once. Also for active photographers who tend to hike gear into remote places,it reduces the weight of your pack. Also a much sturdier barrel than any of the other stock lenses.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all purpose lens This is my 2nd 18-200 lens which I received 3/9/16. The IS quit working on the first one I got in Oct, 2008. I was very happy with the first one and the 2nd one seems very good also. One thing I noticed is that there is no lens creep. The zoom ring seems to have much more resistance. I just got back from a 3 week trip and have taken several hundred pictures with it am very pleased with the performance of the lens. My first lens stayed nearly dust free for the years I used it and hope this one will do the same. With the zoom range you do not have to change lenses and therefore much less chance of getting dirt on the sensor. Auto focus seems fast even though it does not have USM.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from superb value , maximum coverage 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
