Designed to exceed expectations and ideal for video and still images alike, the new EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM marks a new standard for EF-S lenses. It features a refined Image Stabilization system that delivers up to four equivalent stops of shake correction throughout the zoom range; and offers a maximum magnification of 0.28x at the telephoto end, while remaining even more compact in size. This EF-S lens supports the Canon EOS Rebel T4i DSLR's Movie Servo AF feature for smooth and quiet continuous AF during movie shooting by utilizing a new six-group zoom system and the adoption of a stepping motor and focus mechanism. High-speed autofocus is achieved thanks to an Inner focusing system, high-speed CPU, and optimized AF algorithm. Appearing for the first time in a Canon lens is Dynamic IS (Movie Shooting Mode only) that uses a wide image stabilization correction range to help ensure steady video while shooting when walking.
Whether shooting movies or stills, image quality is phenomenal, with one UD and one PMo aspheric lens providing high resolution and high contrast images with reduced chromatic aberration throughout the zoom range. A 7 blade, circular aperture ensures beautiful, soft backgrounds and optimized lens coatings ensure excellent color with minimized ghosting and flare. A zoom ring lock even prevents the lens from accidently extending.

T5i is fun
The T5i is a great camera. It is fun to use. You can make it as easy or as complex as you like to take photos. The 18-135MM lens is a nice lens to have.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

from Granger, IN
I have owned three Rebels before, and the T5i with the 18-135 lens is by far the best yet. The features that are most important are the reticulating screen, the Menu system, an now the touch screen. - Wow. What a great addition. Some of the menu features like the HDR is working wonders. When I ordered the system, the salesperson made some suggestions, but agreed that my selection of lens, and optional equipment was the best for my needs. I have been a professional photographer for 54 years, and can't imagine the need for any more features than on this T5i. I received the FedEx shipment a day earlier than I expected. Thanks much.
