Standard Zoom Design: The focal range of the Canon EF-S 18-135 f/3.5-5.6 IS USM
zoom lens gives you versatile wide-angle to telephoto shooting
options. It features a focal length range equivalent to 29-216mm in the 35mm
Optical Image Stabilizer (IS): The lens features an Optical
Image Stabilizer for up to 4-stops of effective correction even at full zoom.
Since the Optical Image Stabilizer system is in the lens, not in the camera, you
can see the stabilized, steadier images through the viewfinder. The Stabilizer
switch is located on the barrel of the lens.
Nano USM: The EF-S 18-135mm IS USM lens features Canon's new
Nano USM AF system combining a Ring USM (ultrasonic motor) and an STM (stepping motor)
for near-silent video and high-speed auto focusing. The tiny chip-shaped
ultrasonic motor delivers smooth, precise auto focusing, plus allows full time
manual focusing when using One-Shot AF.
Faster Auto Focusing: The new Nano USM motor focuses
approximately 4.3 times faster at the telephoto end (135mm) and 2.5 times faster
at the wide end (18mm) when using the viewfinder, compared to the previous model
(EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM).
Optional Power Zoom Adapter: The EF-S 18-135mm IS USM lens
is compatible with Canon's new
Power Zoom Adapter, which allows you to control the zooming electronically.
The PZ-E1 features adjustable zoom speeds, a locking mechanism, and can be
controlled by remote control. The adapter is ideal for enhancing your camera's
video capabilities by providing smooth and near-silent powered zooming.
Electrical contacts are provided on the barrel of the EF-S 18-135 IS USM lens
for connecting to the adapter.
Auto/Manual Focus Modes: To shoot in Auto Focus mode, you
must set the focus mode switch on the lens to "AF." The Auto Focus adjustment is
gear-driven by a DC monitor. To manually focus the camera, you must set the
switch to "MF," and focus by turning the focusing ring. The AF/MF switch is
located on the barrel of the lens.
Optional Accessories: The lens has a 67mm filter thread
diameter for optional filters and lens hoods. The following accessories are
- Lens Hood: The optional EW-73D hood can keep unwanted
light out of the lens and also protects the front of the lens from rain,
snow, and dust.
- Extension Tubes: The optional EF12 II (1.2x) and EF25
II (2.5x) extension tubes can be added for magnified shots.
- Filters: You can add an optional 67mm UV protector
filter or a 67mm Circular Polarizer filter to this lens. In addition, with
the use of an optional gelatin filter holder, you can add various gelatin
filters for creating special effects.
- Case: The LP1116 case helps protect the lens when it's
not in use.
