Canon EF-S 18-135mm F/3.5-5.6 IS STM Review
The Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM is one of the two unique Canon lenses. These lenses are unique because they are the only ones using STM focusing motors.
This is to mean that these lenses work perfectly and smoothly producing flawless autofocussing when paired with the EOS Rebel T4i D-SLR. This is new technology that makes the lenses better when using and more efficient. The technology also gives the Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM an edge over its competitors. There have been much hype around these new kinds of lenses and much is expected from them. However, will the Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM be able to live up to its expectations and satisfy the needs of the customers? We are going to look at some of the main features of these lenses as well as its performance on different occasions.
To begin with, just like most of the Canon lenses, the build and design quality of these lenses is okay. The lens is quite compact and small in size. The black finish makes the lens look great and would definitely impress you. The cover is made of hard material that protects the lens adequately in case of external force such as when the camera falls down. This lens measures only 3.8 X 3.1 inches and weighs slightly over a pound. This is quite small and light as compared to many other lenses produced by Canon as well as other companies. The light weight is advantages as it makes the lenses easier to handle. One cannot feel fatigued carrying the lenses all day long. The small size increases portability and thus it is easier to carry the lenses from place to place. It can easily fit in a small bag and there wouldn’t be much problem transporting it. At its shortest length the camera lenses is only 18mm but the barrel extends as you zoom. You can also very comfortably use the 67mm polarizer with these lenses because the front barrel does not rotate when zooming.
Again when focusing, the front barrel does not rotate thus making it easy and efficient to use the lenses with the 67mm circular polarizer. After all is said and done, the main thing that would be of uttermost concern to you is the image quality produced by the Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM. When tested for image distortion, the Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM performed excellently producing minimal image distortion. It scored higher than most of its peers. When it comes to the sharpness of the images, the Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM is also at the top of the game. These lenses produce very sharp images that are clear in detail. For HD mode, the images are full HD and you would be impressed. Generally the picture quality produced by Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM is excellent and you would be impressed. This is definitely a recommended type of camera lenses.
