How good is 18-135mm?

Does Canon 18-135mm have image stabilization?

The AF system makes use of a combination of a new ring USM motor and a stepper motor. This provides extra-fast sharpening. The Canon 18-135 mm USM is quieter than the Canon 18-55 mm STM. The lens also has built-in image stabilization good for about 4 stops.



USM lenses are much faster than STM lenses, which makes USM a better choice for action photographers, street photographers, and wildlife photographers. USM lenses also offer smoother manual focusing, given the mechanical connection between the focus ring and the focusing mechanism.

Why are USM lenses more expensive?

“USM” signifies the lens has an UltraSonic Motor for autofocus. That means AF is faster and quieter then the less expensive lens, which uses a conventional motor. It also means that you can manually focus the lens without having to switch from AF to MF mode.
