I was hoping that the STM 18-135 would be better. I use the mk1 version for video at f8 only and outside, AND i have given up on any Auto focus and use manual. if desperate I will suffer the searching and and whitening of the frames as it focuses and take them out in post.

the 24-105L was ideal for me in this use but the range of the 18-135 was really useful

I hope Canon keeps trying, there is a market for this  type of lens

Here are some samples of video shot with 18-135 MK1 using both IS or tripod
