I love my Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS II lens and my Canon EF-S 18-55mm standard kit lens… but I wanted something that would be in between those ranges, so that I didn’t have to keep changing lenses…. So I ordered myself the Canon EF-S18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens and it arrived today.
The 18-55mm is fine for taking photographs of flowers and buildings providing they are near.. but you are very limited to what you can take… and the 55-250mm is great for distance work but it is a bug-bare to keep having to change lenses, for shots that you want between 55-135mm.
I have thought about it, decided against it, and thought about it and then eventually opted to buy it from Amazon.
This picture is straight out of the camera.. no editing whatsoever.
And you can see the sharpness of the lens and it feels a sturdy lens… and it also has a locking button on it, to stop the lens creep, when the camera is not in use.
Naturally I have been snapping anything and everything, including the dogs who were trying to get some sleep…. and I just can’t wait to go out weekend and photograph some beautiful scenery with my new lens.
