manual focus for the win

If you are planning on MF with the 18-135 STM, just be aware that the MF on this lens is "Focus by Wire".  There is no direct mechanical connection between the focus ring and the lens elements.  The focus ring is an electronic control which controls the focus motor.  "Focus Pulling" for video is next to impossible.  For MF, consider the Canon EF-S 15-85 IS USM, or maybe a prime, like the Sigma 30mm f/1.4 EX DC HSM.

When you get down to the nuts and bolts of photography, the results depend on the 'nut' behind the camera!
