My New Canon EFS 18-200mm IS (image stabilizer) lens /f 3.5-5.6

Ok i have been saving a lot these past few days bec. I really wanted to buy a new lens for my camera. Finally, yesterday I went to Quaipo trying to be careful bec. of the cash I am carrying and went to the camera shops to look for the lens that i wanted but not every store has it since it was just recently released by Canon.

It was at HENRY's in Hidalgo, Quiapo (where i also bought my camera) where I bought my Canon EFS 18-200mm IS (image stabilizer) lens /f 3.5-5.6. I am trying to haggle for the price but my charm didn't work haha, they said that price is like that which I agree. Anyway, I bought it since I really wanted the focal range of it and this is the b-day gift for myself.


O talagang siningit ko pa mukha ko haha.
I was really overwhelmed with how big the lens is, imagine I was just using my 50mm 1.8 lens then shifted with a bigger lens. Wow, it was a bit heavy coz I got small hands but I know I will get used to it in no time.

I tested this morning and Here are
Sample shots.

@18mm ---------------@55mm

@135mm -------------------@200mm

I love the focal range of this new lens of mine but still I love my nifty fifty 50mm more bec. of the 1.8 aperture of it. Oh well, i got a new baby again and gosh I got a hole in my pocket now. pweeeh..
