The weight of the lens is 16.0 oz./455g, while dimensions (diameter x length) are 3.0 x 4.0 in./75.4 x 101mm.

Refer to Canon USA for the official specifications, full description, MTF charts, technical details and other data.

Bear in mind that the 18-135mm, being an EF-S optic, can only be used on the newer 1.6x crop Canon digital SLR bodies such as the Canon EOS 7D, Canon T1i / 500D and Canon 50D.

The lens zoom covers a range of 29mm-216mm in 35mm terms (multiply the specified focal length range with 1.6).

Sample photos and examples, image galleries and user pictures, movie / video clips and footage

Here’s a couple of full-resolution sample photos from this lens with the new Canon T2i / 550D / Kiss X4 DSLR in this Japanese review (or see Google’s English translation of the article). The thumbnails are clearly labeled with the lens used.

There is only one web-resized, official sample photo is posted up on Canon Japan.

Not very useful for sharpness and detail evaluation, but the bokeh on the background looks very pleasant and exceptionally smooth.

Accessories and add-ons

The filter thread size on the 18-135 IS is 67mm, which means you’ll want to be looking at 67mm filters.

One item left out in the package is the EW-73B lens hood which is absolutely necessary to prevent flare from appearing in photos when shooting with the lens facing in the general direction of the sun.
