This lens is really sharp, so much so that I can blow up a selected portion of a photo in Photoshop and it's still pretty sharp. This effectively comes close to giving me the equivalent of a 600 mm telephoto (in 35 mm film) in a walk-around lens.
Unfortunately, the lens vignettes (i.e. the corners of the photos are dark relative to the center of the photo). The vignetting is most pronounced in the longer telephoto range. It is especially noticeable with a background that's uniform in color and lighting, such as a blue or overcast sky. Further, the darkening is more pronounced in the upper left corner compared to the upper right. I can correct most of the vignetting in Photoshop, but that program does not deal so easily with the differential darkening between the corners, thus some darkening remains. (Advanced Photoshop techniques should be able to deal with that, but so far I have not expended the necessary effort). Because photos I shoot tend to be more varied in color, lighting, and with more detail in the lower corners, the vignetting is not so noticeable there; thus I have no comment at this time re the behavior in those corners.
The lens also has a very heavy front element. When the lens is on the camera,and that combination is on the strap around my neck, this tends to keep pulling the combination down and then the weight further pulls the lens out into the fully extended telephoto position. Rather inconvenient!
But for these problems, I have would given this lens a 5 star rating; instead I gave it a 3.
Update: The lens is incredibly sharp. I took this lens as my only lens on a recent Mediterranean cruise. While docked in Pireas (Athens) I took a rock-steady, hand-held photo of a distant cruise ship at the 200mm setting -- like a 330mm shot for an old 35mm film guy like me. The cruise ship was still kinda small, so I cropped the photo in Photoshop to what's the equivalent of about a 1000mm shot (for 35mm film) and it's still incredibly sharp! Imagine having that kind of telephoto magnification in a camera you can carry around your neck! On this same cruise, I took lots of other photos at all the focal lengths offered by this lens, and all are good except when I myself messed them up! Vignetting is still a problem though, and I had to spend a lot of time in Photoshop applying fixes to many of the photos from that same trip: So still a 4 rating.
Cons: Hmm, don't know if this is normal, but 135mm-200mm doesn't seem too drastic of a difference; I've taken shots at both ranges and they seem to be nearly the same :(. Is there a defect with mine? Lens creep does come in when you're zoomed at 24mm and facing the lens toward the ground.
Pros: Great grip; the zoom bar is very wide and has a nice grip! The zoom placement is also very nice; you use your index finger to adjust the zoom! It's also not too heavy either!
Overall: Get this. It's cheaper than an 18-135, and works just as well if not better!!
Update: December 1, 2013. At 18mm you will be at f/3.6. 24mm you'll be at f/4.0. Roughly 40mm you'll be at f/4.5. 50mm f/5.0. 80mm+ f/5.6.
Love the fact that you can lock the lens at 18mm. Good for carrying it around without getting "boner lens."
Sports photography can be a pain sometimes (indoors) when you have to constantly adjust the iso and or shutter speed due to the change in aperture.
During an indoor birthday party, I had to remove this lense and put the lense that came with my Canon back on because this one would not focus as fast as I needed it to. It adjusted-adjusted-adjusted -- missed my shot -- adjusted.
For distant outside photography this is wonderful.
I am a purely amateur photographer who mostly takes pictures of my kids, my dog, and our family vacations. I'm using this lens on my Rebel XS and I love it! I was very tired of constantly switching between my standard and zoom lenses, and I'm so happy with this combination lens. It's obviously heavier than the standard lens but it's actually more lightweight than I thought it was going to be. The pictures are crystal clear and the image stabilization is a "must have" on any lens you buy. The focus is a little slower than the standard lens but, again, it's faster than I thought it was going to be.
All in all I couldn't be happier with this lens and I can't wait to take pictures at my kids' sporting events!
