If you're a Canon shooter and always wished Canon made a do-everything 18-200mm lens like others make, well, it finally arrived.

Canon on Tuesday announced its latest EF-S lens, the 18-200mm f3.5-5.6 IS. It offers an incredibly wide focal length range, with a 35mm equivalent range of 29-320mm. The lens features Canon's built-in optical image stabilization system, with a claimed 4-stop effect. With a minimum focusing distance of 18 inches, you will get pretty close for a big lens. Its focal-length versatility makes it ideal for traveling, and for anytime you don't want to carry multiple lenses. It will be available in October for around $700.
