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 4.6 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
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
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing Peter our other camera expert/enthusiast took this lens to a wedding at the weekend, to test it he says (to save him carrying two lenses I say). All his photo opportunities covered with just one lens and he loved it. 23 July 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Purchase & delivery of Canon EF-S 18-200mm IS Lens I am quite satfisfied with the product & was extremely impressed with the delivery arrangements. I opted to pick it up from Waitrose in Huntingdon which is only 5 miles from me & it was already there 2.5 hours before the quoted time. The people I dealt with at Waitrose were also very helpful & knowledgable. 21 July 2012
