Canon designed this lens for premium performance with their EOS SLR cameras. It features a focal range that's ideal for capturing everyday and wide-angle shots. A large maximum aperture throughout the focal range means you'll get well-exposed photos, even when shooting in lower light with slower shutter speeds. Use this lens on your camera when you're hiking, and you'll be able to take group photos at dusk without using a flash, or snap pictures of a sweeping landscape from the top of a mountain.
Designed for great optical performance
Superior optics ensure you'll get crystal-clear, high-contrast images. Your photos will be clear and detailed across the entire field of view from one edge to the other thanks to three aspherical elements. A powerful ultrasonic motor (USM) provides silent, precise auto focusing.
