I just recently updated my camera to a T5i and replaced my 70 - 250 IS lens with the STM version. I would like to get the Canon 38 - 135 but it is a little out of my budget for now. Is there a lens made for the Canon T5i similar to a Vivitar Series I 28 - 90 that I used years ago with my Minolta 560. I go to antique tractor and engine shows and that Vivitar lens was great. I think a later version was 28 - 105. I just need to make sure the auto focus is quiet for taking video.

You would probably be better served by the EF-S 18-135mm STM if in your budget. The 38-130mm you mention is a bit long for the cropped body T5i unless you have something else. I do see you have the EFS 18-55 IS STM and EFS 55-250 IS STM. What do you expect to gain since you have the 38-130 range already covered.

I think it would help if you set your budget.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.

What kind of lens is a Canon 38-130 ? I have never heard of a lens like that and have no idea what budget that would be.

In any case, the Canon 18-55 STM would be very similar to the Vivitar Series I 28 - 90 that you used in the past. It would have a similar field of plus it would have Image Stabilization and STM focus both which are very useful for shooting video.

You can buy a new 18-55 STM for about $250: https://www.bhphotovid​eo.com …18-55+stm&mnp=200&mxp=300 (external link)

You can probably find a used one for about $150.

Agree with everything you said but actually the OP's signature seems to indicate he already has the 18-55 IS STM as well as the 55-250 IS STM. Hence the reason I asked what was expected to be the gained over what he already has.

Sorry, the lens should be 18-135 IS STM. I really messed up on my initial post.

If the 18-55 lens is similar, and I don't doubt what you are saying, I guess I really don't need the 18-135. I erroneously thought I would get a little more versatility in a setting where you cannot always get as close as you want and I don't want to be changing lenses.

The 18-135 STM is a great lens and it has the added focal length from 56mm to 135mm over the 18-55 STM. That range is also covered by your 55-250 STM so the only real advantage is not having to change lenses as often.

There is also a new 18-135 Nano USM which is even more expensive.

For now I would just shoot with the 18-55 STM and 55-250 STM until you can afford the 18-135.
