The Canon EF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS is a versatile super zoom lens for APS-C format EOS DSLR cameras. It covers a very broad zoom range that starts moderately wide-angle and zooms in to a narrow telephoto focal length. Using this potent compact all-in-one lens means you can travel light without having to worry about missing a shot because you don't have a telephoto or need to change lenses.
The EF-S 18-200mm produces quality images thanks to a very sophisticated optical design that uses 16 elements in 12 groups including UD (Ultra low Dispersion) and Aspherical elements to maximum correction. Expect sharp contrasty results with good color rendition. The lens also incorporates an optical Image Stabilizer system that reduces loss of sharpness from handheld photography; it's invaluable if your not using a tripod as it lets you use shutter speeds slower than would otherwise be possible.
All together the Canon EF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS lens is a great multipurpose solution that's perfect for travel and vacations. It's a highly practical and convenient option for Canon EOS Rebel, 20D, 30D, 40D, 50D, 60D, 70D, 80D, 77D, 7D, & 7DII owners.
