Delivering impressive image quality over an incredible focal length range, the EF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS is a lens for all occasions. With its compact stature and exceptional 11x zoom, this is a standard zoom lens that will go with you everywhere. Instead of taking a backpack full of lenses, you can take just one – making it the ideal choice for day trips, hiking and travel. Of course, there is no point carrying around a lens if it doesn’t take great shots. Luckily, this lens not only meets optical performance expectations, it surpasses them. Utilising Canon’s wonderfully accurate Micro Motor autofocus, you will quickly and easily find the focus of your shot, allowing you to create images that are beautifully sharp with low distortion, vignetting and flare. Meanwhile, its 4-stop Image Stabiliser allows for easy handholdability in low light over a wide range of shutter speeds.

EF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent all round lens for 90% of your needs Just to add to a previous review - the zoom actually can be locked so that it does not extend when being worn around the neck - this makes the lens magnificent for a full days action. This is the favourite lens in my collection and normally is resident on the body for general use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wonderfully versatile Great lens for travel due to its versatility for landscapes, wildlife, macro, action and portraits. The only downside is its weight and that hanging around your neck it will slide the zoom all the way out. But if you are tight for space when travelling or don't want to carry a collection of lenses, then this is the lens for you.
