Canon EF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Telephoto Lens

Product information

This compact Canon 18-200mm, f/3.5-5.6 telephoto lens is ideal for photographers seeking an affordable, versatile lens with high magnification – approximately 11x zoom. It features a focal length equivalent of 29-320mm in 35mm format.

To combat the effects of camera shake, the lens incorporates a 4-stop compensation Image Stabilizer technology. This allows you to use shutter speeds up to 4 times slower with virtually no blurring.

You’ll enjoy crisp, high-contrast images without fringing thanks to an ultra-low dispersion lens element. A Super Spectra coating will also help combat ghosting and flare.

Q & As

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 13 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by An excellent lens for everyday use The 18-200 mm covers the most commonly required focal lengths that most amateur photographers are likely to want. This is an Ideal single lens for these photographers having easy handling, image stabilization and a wide enough aperture to compose and take everything from interior family groups to landscapes. the lock facility is useful for panning or videoing at a fixed focal length and the tripod fixing is useful for these shooting modes as well. Not the lightest of lenses but certainly not the heaviest of similar focal range either.; comfortable weight for me. All images are crisp and bright. 07 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Canon EF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Telephoto Lens This is a really nice lens of great quality as you would expect from Canon. Essentially it replaces 2 lenses; 70-300mm & 18-55mm lens. This greatly reduces the need to swap lenses. Although there is some loss of zoom it is acceptable as most of my photos are taken at 200mm and below. I did struggle to get a lenshood (EW-78D) for it. The filters are 72mm which is a lot bigger than the 58mm for the 18-300mm. I would definitely recommend this as a good general use lens. 29 May 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by very useful product the kit lens is not flexible enough for me and more convenient than travelling with /changing lenses. Still experimenting with my EOS 700d 27 January 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good all rounder Excellent all round lens. Only negative comment it is a little heavy, but good if you do not want to keep changing lenses 19 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very good Bought for Christmas present for my husband and he was very happy with the outcome of his photoshot using this brilliant lens. 29 January 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by What a cracker !! This is a cracking little lens. I took it on my trip to South Africa as an all-round alternative to my short zoom and longer telephoto and what a super job it did. Thoroughly recommend this as a very versatile everyday lens. It will now stay on my camera body and I am seriously considering putting my other lenses on ebay. 04 December 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great lens for the money This was purchased as a general purpose lens to cover wide angle and ielephoto opportunities without the need to change lens. It replaced two lenses - a EOS 17-85mm and a 70 - 300mm. The lens feels solid and produces first class results at all focal lengths. The quality is as expected from Canon. 12 November 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Best all-in-one lens I own a canon 550d and I bought this Canon EF-S 18-200mm IS Lens from John Lewis.This is one of the best buys if you dont want to keep changing your lens for different shots.Impressed with the product and the customer experience 11 August 2012
