Hey all! I'm selling a Canon 18-200mm Image-Stabilized EFS lens. This is a great walk-around lens, as it can be incredibly wide or incredibly telephoto depending on your needs. It's also image stabilized, which makes it a great lens for birdwatching.

I bought this lens brand-new a year ago for $650 US, I'll sell it for $450 US or best offer. It's in perfect condition and comes with a Hoya Multi-Coated UV filter. I'm selling it because I've moved to a camera with an EF sensor.

Message me if you're interested -- more information is below.


Note: This lens will fit on the following Canon cameras:

EOS 20Da
EOS 300D/Digital Rebel
EOS 350D/Digital Rebel XT
EOS 400D/Digital Rebel XTi
EOS 450D/Rebel XSi
EOS 500D/Rebel T1i
EOS 550D/Rebel T2i
EOS 600D/Rebel T3i
EOS 1000D/Rebel XS
EOS 1100D/Rebel T3


The Canon EF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Lens is a compact and lightweight wide zoom range lens that is specifically designed for the range of EOS digital SLR cameras that use the smaller EF-S lens mount. Combining powerful performance with high image quality, this lens offers the equivalent of 29-320mm in 35mm format. It is ideal for use as a general-purpose zoom lens, providing coverage from a wide angle to a telephoto perspective.

The EF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS lens incorporates Canon's 4-stop compensation Image Stabilizer technology. This allows the use of shutter speeds up to 4 times slower with no perceptible increase in image blur. Automatic panning detection automatically turns off the Image Stabilizer in either the horizontal or vertical direction when following moving subjects.

Note! Compatible with cameras that have APS-C size sensors

Image Stabilizer
4 stop Image Stabilizer (IS) extends low light options to previously unavailable levels. Photographers normally shooting handheld at 1/250 sec can switch on IS to obtain a similarly steady and blur-free result with a shutter speed of just 1/15 second.

Superior Image Quality
Two UD (Ultra-low Dispersion) elements and several aspherical elements are used to suppress the effects of secondary chromatic aberrations, to obtain crisp, sharp, high-contrast images without fringing throughout the zoom range.

Super Spectra Coatings
Optimized Super Spectra lens coatings and lens element shaping, suppress flare and ghosting - more prone to occur with digital cameras due to reflection of the image sensor. Coatings also help achieve true color balance and increase contrast for vivid hi-fidelity images.

Aperture Maximum: f/3.5 - 5.6
Minimum: f/22 - 36
Camera Mount Type Canon EF-S
Format Compatibility Canon (APS-C)

You can read what people think of this lens here http://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthread.php?t=578814&highlight=18-200 . Doesn't sound a bad lens, though surplus for me.

Actually I think you can fit an EF lens to a Nikon using an adapter, and I presume that also applies to EF-S. I'll investigate.

I checked, and I have it round the wrong way. A Nikon lens can be mounted on a Canon body (using an adapter) but not the other way around.

I have the adapter to fit Nikon lenses to Canon bodies -- I'm surprised there isn't a counterpart.
