Title: Canon EF-S 18-200mm F3.5-5.6 IS E-TTL-II compatible?
Post by: magnum on January 21, 2013, 07:28:33 PM
Can anyone tell me if the Canon EF-S 18-200mm F3.5-5.6 IS lens is E-TTL-II compatible? On a compatible body(i.e. 7D or 600D (T3i) of course.

Great. I assume this means it returns distance to the camera's E-TTL-II for use with Canon EX II speedlites (such as 430 EX II)?

Neuroanatomist,

Thanks. It's pretty hard to find any mention that this lens is compatible in any of the Canon websites or manuals or even third party reviews.

Cheers,
Peter

DPReview mentions it, and it's listed as E-TTL II distance-transmitting in one of my books (NK Guy's Mastering Canon EOS Flash Photography).

Neuroanatomist,

Thanks. I just noticed it on the DP review specs list (last line) must have overlooked that before. Thanks a million.
