Canon 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 Overview

  • 1Description

An ideal all-around lens, the EF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS from Canon is a 28.8-320mm equivalent zoom covering a versatile wide-angle to telephoto range. Using both aspherical and ultra-low dispersion elements, color fringing, chromatic aberrations, and spherical aberrations are well-controlled for a high degree of sharpness, color accuracy, and clarity. A Super Spectra coating has also been applied to suppress flare and ghosting for improved contrast. Complementing the imaging capabilities is a four-stop-effective Image Stabilizer system that minimizes the appearance of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting. Additionally, a DC Micro Motor autofocus system delivers quick focusing performance and a minimum focusing distance of 1.5' is available for close-up shooting.

All-in-one zoom is designed for APS-C-format Canon EF-S-mount DSLRs, and offers a 28.8-320mm equivalent focal length range.
Two ultra-low dispersion elements are used to control color fringing and chromatic aberrations in order to realize greater color accuracy and clarity.
Two aspherical elements are used to reduce distortion and spherical aberrations throughout the zoom range in order to maintain sharpness and accurate rendering.
Super Spectra coating has been applied to individual elements to minimize ghosting and flare for greater contrast and color neutrality when working in strong lighting conditions.
An Optical Image Stabilizer helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake by up to four shutter speed stops to better enable working in low-light conditions and with slower shutter speeds.
A DC Micro Motor autofocus system provides quick focusing performance and a dedicated AF/MF switch allows for quick switching between auto and manual focusing methods.
Rounded six-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing out of focus quality that benefits the use of shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques.

    Canon 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 Reviews

    EF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Lens is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 451.
    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 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 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 A great CANON quality utility lens The EF-S 18-200mm IS lens is a great addition to the CANON lens set. I already have four CANON zoom lens in my kit. This handy size lens allows me to cover most everyday shoots with a single lens. I have already shot over 4000 frames with it and it's a winner. It can handle the high fps of my 40D for sports and wild life and is light enough to be hand held in low light conditions with it's IS capability. The lens focuses quickly and accurately. The only minor complaint is that the lens lock should be moved to the 3 or 4 o'clock position, because it's a bit awkward to find when a quick shot has to be taken. I would love to have an E series lens in this range, but for the price this lens can not be beaten. I highly recommend this lens.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Zoom Range, Slow or Will not AF. It is a reasonable value. I am not impressed with its focusing ability as compared to the 28-135 EF IS USM lens that came as the kit with my 40D. The price is about the same or slightly more if buying either seperately. The 28-135 seems to work better, but does not offer the zoom range that is useful for me traveling and wanting to minimize things I carry. So, I still use this lens instead and live with the slower or worse AF performance. If just a good general lens with a wide range of uses is what you want, this is an acceptable lens. You wont be excited or disappointed.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from An average lens I bought this lens so that I need not have to carry both my 18-55 and 55-250 while I travel. In a way it serves the purpose but I've noticed the following cons 1. it is too heavy 2. The lens zooms out by it's own due to the weight which makes it difficult to keep focus when you shoot something vertically down. 3. it is too risky to hang it on your shoulder or neck as it is too likely to get hit and damaged. Canon provides a lock on the lens which can prevent it from zooming out but I dont trust that lock as I doubt whether it could hold such a heavy lens. Also a lot of people have complained about broken locks. 4. It has a strong barrel effect while shooting at low focal lengths. To mention the pros 1. It takes good quality pictures (ignoring the barrel effect at lower focal lengths) 2. A good multipurpose lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Lens for budget. At this price you can't beat the performance of this lens. It can be from Ultra wide angle to 200 mm zoom. Light weight for a zoom lens best for Crop body camera like 60D & 70D. It is sharp lens with lock to hold the zoom mechanisms. Many people complain about the weight of the lens until they hold on 70-200 mm F2.8 II. I never bought canon lens without red ring but this lens is got my attention when I went out shooting with my friend and he introduced me with this lens. The performance quite please me. The only issue is that the aperture doesn't stay when zoom in and out but that is not a large issue. The lens came with image stabilizer which is is a big plus. Other then that I would give this lens a red ring category.
