Product Details

Canon Camera Lens - EFS1785M

Equivalent to a 28-135mm lens, this new EF-S lens brings true wide-angle to tele coverage to EOS 20D and Digital Rebel shooters. It has Canon's Image Stabilization system, allowing safe hand-holding at speeds up to three stops slower than otherwise possible. And of course, it's optically optimized for digital SLRs. A ring-type USM means both fast and silent AF, as well as full-time manual focus when in the AF mode.

Features:

  • Compact, lightweight design with a 5x zoom ratio -- 28 to 135mm equivalent
  • Excellent optical quality: Aspheric element with two Aspherical surfaces utilized
  • Close-focusing to 1.15 feet -- at 135mm, fills the frame with subject 3 x 4.4 inches
  • Ring-type Ultrasonic motor for superior AF performance; allows full-time MF
  • Image Stabilization extends the lens's usefulness in low-light levels
  • Circular aperture design -- natural highlights, even stopped down two stops
  • Non-rotating front element; lens length does not change during zooming
  • EF-S lens mount -- exclusively for EOS 20D and Digital Rebel bodies

Specifications:

  • Focal Length & Maximum Aperture: 17 - 85mm; 1:4-5.6
  • Lens Construction: 17 elements in 12 groups
  • Diagonal Angle of View: 78° 30' - 18° 25'
  • Focus Adjustment: Inner focusing system, with focusing cam
  • Closest Focusing Distance: 0.35m - 1.15 ft.

This lens is a great alternative to the standard 18-55mm IS. Its extended range makes this a great all-purpose lens. Superb quality for a Non-L lens. I do wish that the green/cyan chromatic aberration weren't as apparent. I used this lens in college and for some light commercial work. It has served me well for the past 3 years, and I will sad to see it go when I make the switch to the new 5D mark II and will no longer be able to use it. I purchased it with a 20D and it has been an excellent pairing.

I've had this lens since my 20D and have used it a lot for everyday photography. I have been very happy with the lens performance and the resulting photos I have taken. However, the lens started to malfunction recently - unable to achieve auto focus. The problem occurs in various lighting conditions and aperture settings. After searching a few forums for information, it seems that this is not an uncommon problem. I've read about several users having to have Canon replace the servo motor as the fix. So, great lens, but disappointing in what we have come to expect from Canon quality.

Excellent for teh Price

By 

from New York

Comments about Canon Camera Lens:

his lens is clearly an attempt by Canon to replicate the success of their earlier 28-135mm F3.5-5.6 IS USM, which gained a strong reputation as an excellent performer on 35mm film; and they did it.

good kit lens

By 

from central city, co.

Pros

  • good lens if you dodge a lemon.

Cons

  • Poor build quality
  • zoom creep

Best Uses

    Comments about Canon Camera Lens:

    There seems to be a lot of quality control issues with this lens. The main problen i have with this lens is "zoom creep". Its also hard to focus manually. Other than that, the lens is good. I traded the kit lens that came with the camera for this lens, and i'm glad i did. Going by the reviews, it seems like there are a lot of lemons that get by quality control, so its a hit or miss with this lens. I would look elsewhere if i needed a reliable lens.

        Comments about Canon Camera Lens:

        Excellent lens, when it works. The problem is I can't tell when it's going to work, and when it's not. It's almost moody. I stuck with Canon, and got 2 new lenses to replace it. Keeping it as a possible backup. I would not recommend it, especially at that price.

          communications failure

            Comments about Canon Camera Lens:

            Took 11, 000 pictures with this lens, then suddenly it had a communications failure with t3i. this is a known defect with this lens -- i.e., the flexible cable inside the lens that does the electronic communication wears out and fails. The lens then stops working completely. The lens was bought in 2012 and failed after 18 months (out of warranty of course). That it failed on a trip to an african country was very disconcerting. Fortunately I had an EF 35mm 4L, an EFS 10-22mm, and an EF 70-200 mm 4L with me. Will probably either get it fixed (have Canon replace the cable) or buy an EF 24-70mm 4L for a more dependable lens...having a lens fail on a trip is untenable. Such a product with a known defect-- particularly given the fact this lens was bought 4 years after it was introduced by Canon just shouldn't happen!! The defect should have been corrected within 2 years of its introduction.

                The autofocus failed during a trip at the Everglades, I had to work on manual mode all the time. The repair is a very difficult task and costly. I has the lens for over two years, Canon should stop advertising this lens.

                    This lens failed when I went to the galapagos. Good thing I had a backup, since having no wide angle would have been a big problem. Came home to find out these lenses are simply bad and wear out. Unreliable autofocus past 18mm means the lens isn't worth much. Buy something else.

                        I have had this lens for 5 years and before I bought it I was hesitant because of some bad reviews. My copy of the lens has been great. I have never had a problem and the pictures are razor sharp. I use it on a Canon 50D and T2i. It also focuses fast.

                            Lens stopped working during an important photo shoot. The quality is very bad for a Canon lens. Canon needs to recall these lenses and discontinue them. The 15-85mm USM IS is a better option/replacement.

                            I bought this lens in 2005 when I bought my 20D. I use it as my everyday walk around lens and it has traveled with me around the world. Never a problem. Never a hiccup. The only reason I would change this lens is if they made the same lens in an "L" series. If I can tear myself away from it I am going to send it in to be cleaned so I can use it with my new 7D.
