Looking for 18-135mm STM first impressions
« on: July 16, 2012, 08:34:21 PM »
I am fairly new to this hobby, just got a T4i with the 40mm pancake after I cancelled my amazon order because I couldn't wait any longer for the 18-135 STM to ship. I know some of you have ordered the lens separately from Canon and some are now showing up at best buy. I am curious to what your first impressions are with the lens, as the pancake has gotten so many good reviews (from what I have found).  Just curious as to what you think about it so far...

Its better, but a 7.5:1 Zoom is a compromise, so its not for those wanting high end performance.

Initial impression is that this lens is an excellent walk around lens for  someone that doesn't mind variable aperture and really wants to avoid switching lenses. The compromises are far fewer than they were with the older version and looks to be better than most other lenses that cover this range

The beginnings of my detailed review Canon 18-135 STM lens is taking shape http://digital.photorecommendations.com/recs/2012/08/18-135-stm-detailed-review/

I am happy to answer any questions, What would you like to know about the lens?
