A dynamic lens duo for on-the-go shooting

Canon packaged two of their best-selling lenses together for a kit you can take anywhere. The super-versatile EF 50mm f/1.8 STM lens is perfect for close-ups and portraits indoors or out. If this is your first prime lens, you'll love the dreamy image quality you get from its large aperture. You can also use it to capture street scenes and landscapes by day or night. It's an all-around great everyday lens.

The EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM lens is an ideal travel companion for crystal-clear, wide-angle images anywhere you go. The built-in Optical Image Stabilizer minimizes blur, for sharp low-light photos at slower shutter speeds. Both lenses are lightweight enough to take anywhere. And if you like shooting movies with sound, you'll appreciate the smooth, ultra-quiet autofocus these lenses' stepping motors give you.

Specifications

Bundle Overview: The Canon Power to Create 2 Lens Kit (Portrait & Travel) includes two Canon lenses: EF 50mm f/1.8 STM and EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM. The EF 50mm lens is ideal for portrait photography, while the EF-S 10-18mm zoom lens can capture wide open vistas and beautiful scenery when you're traveling. Both lenses have the standard Canon EF-mount, and come with front and rear lens caps.

EF 50mm f/1.8 STM Features

AF/MF Switch: A switch on the lens barrel lets you select Auto Focus (AF) or Manual Focus (MF). Full-time manual focus allows you to manually focus with the focus ring, even while the lens is in AF mode.

Stepping Motor: The gear-type Stepping Motor (STM) provides smooth and quiet continuous auto focusing. It supports the Movie Servo AF, making it ideal for video shooting as well as shooting still photos.

Optional Accessories: The following accessories are available directly from Canon:

  • ES-68 Lens Hood: The ES-68 is designed specifically for the EF 50mm f/1.8 STM lens. It helps to prevent stray light from entering the lens to avoid unwanted glare from affecting your photos.
  • LP1014 Lens Pouch: The optional LP1014 lens pouch can protect the lens and keep it clean.
  • Extension Tubes: You can attach the optional Canon EF-12 II or EF-25 II Extension Tubes for magnified shots.

EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM Features

Image Stabilizer (IS): The built-in Optical Image Stabilizer can be used in the AF (autofocus) or MF (manual focus) modes. The Image Stabilizer gives the equivalent effect of a shutter speed four stops faster. Two 2-position switches located on the barrel of the lens allow you to turn the image stabilizer on and off.

Stepping Motor (STM): The EF-S 10-18mm lens is equipped with a Stepping Motor (STM) with lead screws that drives the focus lens, and also controls the focus lens during zooming. The STM and the newly-designed focus mechanism support the Canon EOS Movie Servo AF function to provides quiet, smooth auto focusing during video recording, as well as when shooting still images.

AF/MF Switch: A switch on the lens barrel lets you select Auto Focus (AF) or Manual Focus (MF). The rear focusing system, high-speed CPU, and improved AF algorithm allows high speed auto focus. Full-time manual focus allows you to manually focus with the focus ring, even while the lens is in AF mode.

Optional Hood and Filters: The EF-S 10-18mm lens has a 67mm mounting thread on the front of lens for attaching screw-on type filters. The optional EW-73C lens hood blocks out unwanted light, and protects the front of the lens from the elements.
