Pros:Good construction and compactness, versatile focal hike, excellent stabilizer, fast AF. Sharpness: Considering the use for which this zoom has been designed, its yield is not disparable.
Cons:Excessive distortion at 18 mm., Lens hood missing.
Opinion:Bought the Canon EF-S 18-200 IS and found its strengths and weaknesses, trying to optimize its optical performance, I came, after several tests, to make the settings mentioned below, thanks to which I obtained visible improvements. Through the Camera menu I entered the program "photo style", selecting "Auto" (or "Standard", if the camera is lacking) and changing the sharpness to + 5 and contrast to + 1. I then activated "Highlight Tone Priority" to increase the latitude of laying and get a greater three-dimensional effect of the images. In addition, using the "center Weighted average light measurement", I tried to use the optics, as far as possible, with diaphragms from F/5.6 to F/9. Finally, I eliminated the UV filter that caused a slight drop in global sharpness, using, of course, the lens hood for both the protection of the front and to block unwanted internal reflexes.
Opinion:They are a beginner, and I was undecided as "evolve" from 18-55 of the basic kit. I then 50ino fixed, then 17-85, and then I moved to 18-200 that basically I never dismantled more, because it offers a priceless versatility, and an excellent performance at all focal lengths, at least for my amateur .rnsi located in used between 250 and 300 euro (October 2015), good advice to check the wear of the ring and a locking device, but it is well-made, solid and affidabile.rnrn
Opinion:First lens of reflex, as it should be. To understand: if you come from a bridge or a compact and scare you often have to change objective, or do not know that you'll be using focal, it is the solution for you. Great for learning. The factor "travel light" for me is a false problem, however there tired soon. Very soft at room temperature, improves between f / 9 and f / 11 to focal intermediate. The zoom is unusable for me is so bad quality, I find it frustrating that more than 150 mm. returns only ever images "mixed", with any opening. I do not exclude that this is my original, particularly botched. In terms of construction is done well, it is solid and does not come so much dust. Convenient the push-button to lock the extension, which prevents the elongation of the barrel with the machine shoulder. Ugly bokeh, woody. Pitch dark, if you can raise the ISO on your camera so you will often get into trouble, even if the stabilizer does its job well. AF decognawed. Objective certainly very practical, but recommended just to start, used to buy no more than 250 euro.
Opinion:It is worth taking a camera and use it with a 18 200? I say no, better to use a compact. However if you want to force a comprar obiettiov travel much better than the canon 18 135 a bit 'more clear at the expense of the slight decrease in focal length but can be used in almost all focal although light years away from the nitidità tamron 17 50 smooth. And 'one of the objectives the worst I've ever bought, resold immediately.
Cons:Coupling to lock sliding lens, lens hood lack, brightness
Opinion:Goal that use 90% on my 70D, I find "honest" about the quality of the photos. It 'a handyman, so normal that there are trade-offs with respect to objectives gamma.rnApprezzo very top of the stabilizer that performs its function effectively even at maximum brightness estensione.rnrnSul front, pay a bit' in low light conditions and on focal thrusts, forcing you to compensate by increasing ISO or shutter speed. rnrnIl mechanism focal elongation is very soft and with the machine shoulder rest position stretches alone; This has obliged to add a lock button which is very uncomfortable. I think as Canon could have done more, especially in comparison to another lens that I use, the Tamron 70-300, where the extension system is very focal migliore.rnrnPer finish, but it's a classic for IS lenses, missing hood and I think this is a gap that should be colmato.rn
