Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM Review
Sharpness at 85mm
The sharpness tests for this review were carried out using a real-world subject rather than a test chart. The Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM lens was attached to a Canon EOS 80D body, which in turn was mounted on a sturdy tripod. Self-timer mode was activated. Slight tonal changes are due to slight changes in natural light during the session.
The full frame at 85mm
Centre sharpness remains high through from f/8 to f/11, with f/16-f/36 being adversely affected by diffraction. The edges are almost as sharp as the centre, with f/8 to f/11 again producing the sharpest results.
