I did a review of this lens a long time ago only after using it for one weekend, now that I have had this lens for over a year I thought I would talk more about how I use this lens.
All the footage you just saw was from my family vacation to San Diego was taken with the Canon 28-135mm zoom lens and more importantly it was all shot handheld, just the bare camera and lens no other equipment besides a camera strap.
This lens really shines in outdoor use when I and running and gunning, a zoom lens is a must for me, there is no way I can follow my kids while changing out multiple prime lenses, that is just not going to happen. I like to travel light with just one lens in situations like Sea World.
My favorite thing about this lens is the IS Image Stabilization. I am kind of cheating here because I am using slow motion which makes it look even smoother but it makes me look like a pro even though I am not using any other extra gear.
It really doesn’t work as well inside, so I try not to use it too much indoors because the lens is not very fast at all compared to a prime.
Also over the past year I have compared it to many other lenses I have reviewed (mostly primes) and I can tell you it has always been the least sharpest lens.
I don’t use it for interviews or low light situations, but it is my go to run and gun outdoor lens.
But for the price (FIND PRICES) it is a great lens to own.
So if you are looking for a good travel zoom lens to bang around for video for outdoor use, this lens might be for you.
