Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/4-5.6 IS STM Lens

The new Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/4-5.6 IS STM is a compact zoom lens that provides basic reach for common subjects. This new f/4-5.6 lens is even smaller and lighter than than the older f/3.5-5.6, making it a great lens to bring with you on your everyday travels. The lead screw-type stepping motor (STM) has been greatly improved and now provides smoother autofocus and makes less noise during operation, helping you capture videos with great audio and minimal background noise so you won't distract your subject in a quiet photo environment. The Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/4-5.6 IS STM also features the same in-lens IS found in the f/3.5-5.6, which provides up to 4-stops of image stabilisation, helping you get clear and sharp results when shooting longer exposures such as in low light. Please note that this lens is made specifically for APS-C cropped sensor cameras and will not mount on full-frame DSLR's.
  • Basic 18-55mm zoom (35mm equivalent of 28.8-88mm) provides reach for common close subjects
  • 4-stop in-lens image stabilisation greatly helps to reduce camera shake induced blur
  • Lead screw-type STM autofocus motor provides fast and near silent autofocus operation
  • Compact and lightweight: small dimensions of Φ66.5 x 61.8mm, and light weight of 215g
  • Close minimum focus distance of 25cm
  • 7-bladed circular aperture provides pleasant out of focus bokeh
