Overview

Our take on the Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/4-5.6 IS STM

An agile all-purpose lens

This 18-55mm lens from Canon gives you the flexibility to shoot sweeping landscapes with the entire scene in focus, expressive portraits with dreamy blurred backgrounds, and everything in between. You can even capture detailed close-ups from less than a foot away.

Features

Overview: The Canon EF-S 18-55mm F4-5.6 IS STM lens is a standard zoom lens for Canon EOS cameras with an APS-C image sensor. When used on full-frame cameras, the focal length is equivalent to 29-88mm. The lens features a Stepping Motor (STM) for smooth, quiet auto focus, and Image Stabilization (IS) for blur-free images.

Stepping Motor (STM): The EF-S 18-55mm lens is equipped with a Stepping Motor (STM) that drives the focusing lens. The lens is especially effective during movie shooting with cameras that have the Canon EOS Movie Servo AF function, allowing quiet, smooth auto focusing.

Image Stabilizer (IS): The lens features shifting Image Stabilizer lens groups to compensate for camera movement so the image appears steady on the image plane, ensuring crisp, clear images, even in dim light. It provides shake reduction equivalent up to 4 stops of shutter speeds.

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.

Construction: The EF-S 18-55mm lens features a textured black leather coating that gives you a precise, comfortable grip. It has smooth-turning focus and zoom rings that deliver accurate movement.
