About the Canon EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM

Dave Bar

The ideal traveling companion

Canon's compact 10-18mm zoom lens and your EOS SLR camera with an APS-C sensor make a perfect match for capturing crystal-clear, wide-angle images wherever you roam. The lens' stepping motor (STM) and refined autofocus system give you virtually silent operation for smoother-looking videos with better sound. The built-in Optical Image Stabilizer helps keep your shots blur-free. And at just 8-1/2 ounces, this lens won't weigh you down when you're ready to hit the road. It's the perfect choice when you're not sure what's next — a dramatic landscape, a child's face out on the playground — or a candid group shot.

Product Research


Overview: The Canon EF-S 10-18mm F4.5-5.6 IS STM lens is an ultra-wide angle zoom lens for Canon EOS cameras with an APS-C image sensor. It presents a field of view equivalent to that of a 16-28.8mm lens in 35mm photography. The lens features a built-in Optical Image Stabilizer (IS), as well as a Stepping Motor (STM) for smooth, quiet auto focus.

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.
