Default Canon EF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS

People around the net have been posting images with the 18-200 they received in their 50d kit, so lets start a topic and get the ball rolling.

Post em if you got em.

Well, here goes my first post to POTN, with one my first shots from new 50D with 18-200mm lens. This is RAW with a bit of tweaking in DPP. Full image is available on flickr (http://www.flickr.com/photos/jcharle...ol-908754@N22/). Thanks!



Shutter: 0.125 sec (1/8 ), Aperture: f/5.6, Focal Length: 200 mm, ISO Speed: 1600

So, what are your first impressions of those of you who own the new lens?

Good, bad, indifferent? Comparisons to other lenses?

I'd love the range but I'd like to hear owner's remarks before I pull the trigger.

This tiny little flower is only about an inch wide, so I needed to get pretty close to capture the shot.

Exposure: 0.003 sec (1/320)
Aperture: f/6.3
Focal Length: 200 mm
ISO Speed: 1000

Some pretty good shots here, just how macro is this lens? What's the MFD?

Lets see more, so what does everyone think, is this lens similar to other lenses you've used? Better/worse than expected, sharp/soft fast AF, slow? build...so on and so forth....

C'mon 50D owners hit us with more with tamron coming out with their new VC version of this lens & sigma has theirs, I'm excited to see how Canon's version measures up. I'll be snagging one of the 3 (most likely not Sigma... not a fan of it) as a nice lens while out with the family @ the zoo/parks/ fairs n such...

I second Lore's comment. I have the 28-135 IS lens and a 40D. I was planning on getting a Tokina 12-24mm to cover the wide end, and then going with the 100-400L to cover my long end for wildlife. If this lens is proven to be a true performer, I might consider going for it instead. While I doubt that the 18-200 can stack up to the 12-24 Toke on IQ and sharpness, it seems to match up with my 28-135mm lens. If I had this lens I would also pass up the 100-400, since the versatility would not be as important, and get the 300 f/4L IS prime. The 300mm lens is lighter, has the ability to be shot at f/4 which I like, and if I am not mistaken has a closer minimum focusing distance than the 100-400. I know that I would probably replace the 18-200 eventually with better and faster lenses, but in the short term on a budget the 18-200 IS and 300 f/4 IS sounds like a pretty good setup to get me by doing wildlife shooting. Plus I could get a 1.4X tc for the money I would save not having to purchase the 12-24mm Tokina lens, which would put me at 420mm with similar IQ to what I would get on the 100-400mm at 400. (probably not as good, but you get the idea.) If anyone has any suggestions I would appreciate the feedback. I was also wondering about the durability of the 18-200mm lens. Does it have a metal or plastic mount? Comparable to the 17-55mm IS lens? If it has the same build as the 17-55, I think that I am going to go for it. Thanks in advance for the input.

Here are a couple shots taken with the 50d and 18-200 combo:





You can see more shots taken with this combo at —> http://ajlipe.smugmug.com/gallery/61...87007608_2tTbH

This is a nice walk-about lens but I have mine up for sale and knew that would probably be the case when I purchased the kit. There is nothing wrong with this lens. I just have my lens selection the way I want for what I normally shoot so I really don't want to see this lens just sit idle.

The 18-200 isn't built like the kit. It's more comparable to the 17-55. It has a metal mount.

Sorry, my bad.....must have mis-read...

This is from SLRgear.com

http://www.slrgear.com/reviews/showp...uct/1219/cat/4

"Notable in the new lens design are two aspherical elements and 2 UD glass elements in a 16-element/12-group formula. Mechanical construction was described to us as "mid-grade": Not the built-like-a-tank level of Canon's L glass with gaskets and a metal barrel, but at the same time, far from low-end "plastic fantastic" construction as well. The complex optical formula also delivers a minimum focusing distance of 17.8 inches (45 cm) at all focal lengths, aided by a zoom arrangement that puts 5 lens groups in a helical zoom assembly, with only 80 degrees of rotation needed to go from maximum wide angle to maximum telephoto. The new 18-200 is 3.1 inches (78.6mm) in diameter x 6.4 inches (162.5mm) long at maximum extension, weighs in at 20.99 ounces (595g) and takes a 72mm filter."

Cheers
