Slightly more compact that the previous 18-135mm EF-S lens, it is also slightly heavier. The lens doubles in length when fully zoomed in to the full 135mm. At just over 1 pound, This lens is comfortably added to any dSLR camera without weighing it down. It is even comfortable on the smaller Rebel series of EOS cameras.

Here you can see the rubber grip of the zoom control and zoom lock. Rotating very easy, the zoom control is comfortable and offers very little resistance through the entire zoom range. The lock lets you "lock" the lens into the 18mm (most compact) position, which is a safer way to transport it.

Canon's switches for AF/MF and the image stabilizer are labeled well and easy to locate. They are also very stiff, meaning if you happen to run your fingers over them while shooting, you do not have to worry about accidentally switching them.

The 18-135mm EF-S STM lens uses a filter thread of 67mm to allow you to attach filters to the lens as well as a bayonet mount on the end for accessories like the included lens shade.

Canon's durable metal EF mount provides a great deal of durability to the lens.
