I'm surprised this fairly new lens has gotten nearly no attention at all.

This lens has practically stayed on my T1i since I bought it back in October (my only other lens is the kit one :( ). Most of my current Flickr posting are from this lens. And I'd say it's done me well.

Started out feeding ducks and geese and all of a sudden this bird came along so I decided to test out the 7D AF system. All shots with the 18-135mm kit lens. I'm a noob, so feel free to critique and criticize.

Here are some I took during a recent trip. I really like the versatility this lens gives you.

I am thinking of getting this lens to updrage the kit lens for my xti. But I'm leaning towards the 55-250... The price is more appealing. Any thoughts?


My little list: Canon Rebel XTi, 580ex, 50mm 1.4, Tamron 70-300

I was worried about this lens after reading the photozone smackdown on it but after seeing the goods on this forum I got one and boy, am I glad I did! I'd say its IQ is on par with my 18-55 kit lens (which is pretty good), and its focal length range is perfect.

Sorry for the small shots - blame picasa.

I was worried about this lens after reading the photozone smackdown

After reading a couple of other (external link) reviews (external link), I have to conclude that the Photozone review is unfair, especially with regard to the barrel distortion complaint at 18 mm. (It's a freaking super-zoom... even the 15-85 mm exhibits a lot of barrel distortion).

The truth is that this is a halfway decent walk-around lens that is a half step up from a kit lens. I got one for $250 with my 7D, as I didn't have anything else in the wide-angle/short telephoto range (I was a Nikon guy up until recently). There's no way that it's worth the $400 that it typically sells for, but $250 is a good deal for this lens. Most of the distortion and CA are limited to the edges, and it focuses very quickly and accurately. My biggest complaints are the overly-plastic build and the focus ring rotation during AF (a stray grip could damage the AF motor). But, again, it's a half step up from a kit lens. I'll probably sell this lens sometime next year (heck, I might even make a small profit) and purchase the 15-85. But so far I've been pleasantly surprised with the quality, given what I paid.

I haven't used it all that much, but here are a couple of samples. All were shot with a 7D...

ISO 200, 1/500 sec, f/8, 135 mm (it was a bit hazy that morning)

was able to take the 60D with the kit lens to see the Lakers play the Jazz in a preseason game. All in all, I have to say that the kit lens worked admirably within the lighting in Staples Center...
