No USM on the EF-S 18-200 IS lens
Aug 26, 2008

I'm surprised that the EF-S 18-200 f/3.5-5.6 IS lens does NOT feature an ultrasonic motor. It uses a regular micromotor. Sheesh! Even the crummy EF-S 17-85 IS lens has USM.

On the bright side, the lens seems a bit hefty (4" long, 600 grams) compared to other similar lenses. Certainly, the extra heft isn't from the mediocre EF-S build quality. So hopefully the optics are good.
