Get it? Got it. Good.
In the last couple of years I've had a ridiculous number of lenses. You can read all the reviews that you like. There's nothing like having the pieces in your hands and using them on your cameras. Some reasonably priced lenses, for instance the 24mm pancake, the 50mm prime, and the 85mm prime, have been consistently crisp and clear. Just excellent units at pretty low prices. You can't ask for better than that. The thing there is that traditionally, prime lenses were sharper and more consistently exhibited better focus than zoom lenses. That's changed. With primes, you carry a few of them. Zooms are really convenient. Convenience versus clarity is a decision that's no longer necessarily one that need be made. The 18-135mm USM Nano and the 70-300mm USM Nano are so much better than the other zooms that I've used that one must applaud the advances that have been made. They're not that expensive, not really at all, yet they regularly give me on point focus on the level that my primes did. Crisp focus with the convenience of a zoom at a nice price? That's something of a no brainer. Sure, L Series zoom lenses did and do offer clarity at the high level of primes. They do so though at a high retail price and they're big, clunky, and heavy. Yes, they're beautifully made and a pleasure to use if you don't mind lugging around a big lead weight or two. There are two lenses in my bag now. The 18-135 Nano and the 70-300 Nano. They cover a vast range and perform flawlessly. Why play around with lesser lenses when there's very little difference in price? Now I can understand Pros using L Series lenses for their superior light gathering capabilities. If you don't need that capability and don't care about the status that showing up with a fancy L Series lens confers, play it smart. Get one of these. You get great photos and you can snicker quietly at those that just don't get it.

Very versatle lens.
I got this to replace my Canon 15-85. I liked the 15-85, but my Canon 10-18 covered the 15-17 range. I wanted a longer all around focal length. The 18-135 USM also has a greater magnification for close ups. Since it has a 67mm filter it matches the 10-18, so I wont need step up rings when carrying the 10-18 and 18-135 together. There have been situations when I carried the 10-18 and 15-85, but wished I had a longer length than 85. This lens provides that. I will also be selling my 55-250 STM, which is a good lens, but the STM isn't fast enough for wildlife. I have taken some birds in flight photos with the 18-135 USM, which is a short focal length for wildlife, but I can use it in a pinch. The 15-85 was too short for "in a pinch" wildlife photos, and the 55-250 STM would have to "wake up" to be used for action shots, that I sometimes missed. I like the 18-135 USM.

Better than the original
This lens replaces an older lens of the same type that failed. The new lens does everything the old one did, but has a better motor, a zoom lock and provision for remote zoom control. Be advised that you can't manually focus the lens unless the camera is powered; the focus ring won't engage. This is a feature, not a bug; the manual focus ring is declutched for autofocus so you can't fight the focus motor.

Excellent overall and perfect for informal video work
The Canon 18-135mm series lens is a good step up from the kit 18-55mm lens if you're looking for something with a bit more reach and better image quality than the 18-200mm lenses with a focus on video recording. The sharpness is very good, even comparing to the surprisingly sharp 18-55mm, but what got my interest is the Nano USM focus system. This is Canon's latest and somewhat greatest, gearing mostly to video work. It's very fast (comparable to L USM lenses) but the highlight is the smoother/gradual and faster (more silent too) focusing when compared to lenses with STM. Overall, it's wonderful for video recording and more than sufficient for photos. This newest mark of the 18-135mm is so video oriented that Canon even has the Power Zoom PZ-E1 adapter especially for it. This adapter only works with this lens and gives it smooth, varied speed auto zoom. I got this lens mainly for casual/b-roll type videography so it's a perfect match for me. I think if I wanted something with greater zoom than the kit lens as a walkaround, I would opt for the 18-200/250/270/300mm superzooms out there instead. The modern day superzoom have good image quality and focusing speed, can be smaller, and of course, that extra reach you won't have regardless how fancy your 18-135mm lens is. So if you want a good zoom lens to replace your kit and you'll be doing some video recording, this is a good pick. Otherwise, for vacation and casual everyday pics, I would personally look at the superzooms. Have fun, friends!
Great Lens for Canon Rebel SL3
Great flexible lens. Quiet focus motor. Nice range for general purpose use. Works well for video and images. Smooth operation. Overall very nice. Good for pretty much everything except very low light level without flash and not good for macro. I'm using this on a Canon Rebel SL3.
