Canon 18-135 MM IS for Portrait?
Nov 19, 2011

Hi All,

I've been wanting to get a longer zoom lens, mainly for portrait photo. I already have a 50mm f1.8 that I totally love. But due to the shorter range, I have to get pretty close for a tight frame on the subject sometimes. I'm thinking of getting a longer zoom one so I'm not right up in the subject's face. I actually love the 15-85mm one, but the budget is really well over my reach. Even the used one is like $500+.

I got a quite good deal on the 18-135 for around $280. However, the review that I read on that lens isn't very good. So wasn't so sure about buying. Can anybody with the lens let me know what you think about the lens and whether it'll be good for my main purpose of shooting? Thanks.
