Score 8.0/10
Good points:
awesome holiday lens : with crop sensor 1.6x zoom the telephoto is incredible and wide angle still wide enough

its light weight and well built

I was really surprised how all my pictures from open aperture to closed and wide angle to tele all came out very well indeed - even when viewed on a 60 inch 4k TV
Bad points:
nothing really bad about this lens at all ... except image quality can be even bettered if you are prepared to spend 10 times as much on L series lenses and a full frame camera

Alan, Swansea Keen amateur Motorsport Nature

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Great image resolution even at full zoom, image stabilisation works well and it out performs my non IS canon 75/300 lens on hand held shots. Super focal length range, making the 18/55 lens almost redundant other than for its lighter weight. Well made and feels satisfying in the hand and durable. For me with the addition of simple macro extension tube this lens effectively covers everything from macro to 300 mm telephoto. Incredibly versatile!
Bad points:
Nothing really, i suppose its not light so if you really don't need the telephoto facility you might be better with the much lighter 18/55 IS STM option.

Manufacturer's Description

Compact, fast and lightweight
The EF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS is a compact, EF-S lens with high magnification – approx. 11×. It features an 18-200mm zoom ratio (the 35mm film equivalent focal length is 29-320mm) and has a maximum aperture of f/3.5-5.6. Designed to appeal to entry-level and advanced amateur users looking for a lens with an optical Image Stabilizer and large focal length range, it weighs just 595g and measures 78.6 × 102mm. The lens offers 0.45m minimum focusing distance at all zoom position.

The EF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS is designed exclusively for use with EOS cameras featuring an EF-S lens mount – including the EOS 50D, EOS 1000D, EOS 450D, and earlier models.

Aspheric and UD elements
High image quality has been assured with the addition of two high-precision aspheric lenses to correct aberration including curvature of field and distortion. Chromatic aberration common in wide-angle shooting is also combated by the inclusion of two UD lenses, ensuring optimum image quality and corner-to-corner detail.

Super-Spectra coating
Canon’s patented lens element coating minimises the ghosting and flare caused by reflections off the camera image sensor and internal lens surfaces. Light transmission is improved and reflections are reduced to deliver clear crisp images.

4-stop Image Stabilizer
A 4-stop optical Image Stabilizer – specially designed for the lens’ specific focal length range – works to counteract image blur, which can occur during handheld shooting, or at slow shutter speeds. Automatic panning detection ensures effective performance when tracking moving subjects. And, as the IS system is based in the lens, results are visible through the viewfinder during framing.

Durable build quality and Lead-free optics
Designed to be a hard-working lens the EF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS benefits from a robust design, which can match the demands of today’s photographers. Environmentally friendly lead-free glass is used throughout the construction of the lens.
