Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS

Review Date: Jun 23, 2018 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 8 

Pros: Mine is a Sharp Copy, Zoom Range, Price, Size.
Its STM vs.USM Nano but a very minor thing, Getting a sharp copy is like a lottery.

There are sharp Copies After All
I have tried this lens in STM & USM NANO both from the Canon Refurbished store and the IQ didn't come close to this STM copy I purchased used and were both returned.
In shooting the same test shots with this one I didn't expect much difference in the results. My thoughts were Canon's 18-135 series lenses were over priced and $150.00 was about right for a lens that 100% crops could not be used.

Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM

Review Date: May 15, 2018 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,700.00 | Rating: 10 

Pros: Very sharp MKII copy. Even with the 1.4X II extender.

I see the last review was in 2010. Its 2018 and my copy is a keeper. I traded in an original version for this very sharp MKII copy. I sampled my 1.4X II extender and finally feel like I'm getting what I paid for out of the extender. If it loses anything it may be just a tad contrast but is still sharp.
My hands are not as steady as they used to be and the MKII IS has put me back in the game over the original.
