CameraLabs reviews the Canon EF-S 18-200mm F3.5-5.6 IS and writes;
“It’s far from perfect, but the EF-S 18-200mm IS becomes one of the most compelling general-purpose lenses for owners of compatible Canon bodies, both old and new.”

SLRGear reviews the Canon EF-S 18-200mm F3.5-5.6 IS and writes;
“Canon 18-200mm ƒ/3.5-5.6 IS offers slightly better performance than we’re accustomed to seeing with vacation lenses, with image stabilization thrown into a very portable form factor. Users who seek optical perfection shouldn’t flock to this lens, but when used stopped down by one or two stops, it’ll give fairly impressive results.”
Rating: ★★★★½

Photozone reviews the Canon EF-S 18-200mm F3.5-5.6 IS and writes;
“The situation would have been a bit different a couple of years ago when the sensor requirements were lower but combined with the EOS 50D the lens is somewhat outdated straight from the start. Better look elsewhere unless you still intend to use an older generation DSLR for a while. “
