Affordable, high-quality zoom
The EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS is a high-quality, standard zoom lens that will appeal to photographers who prefer to travel light. With a focal length equivalent of 29-88mm in 35mm format, the lens’ wide zoom range is suitable for most general photography. For close-up work, auto focus continues to work at distances of just 0.25m (25cm) throughout the zoom range.

Image Stabilizer
To minimise risk of image blur, the EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS incorporates Canon’s 4-stop Image Stabilizer technology. This allows photographers to use shutter speeds up to 4 times slower than normal with no perceptible increase in image blur - ideal for shooting in low light.

Aspherical lens element with Super Spectra coating
As well as ensuring true colour balance and sharp, high contrast images, Super Spectra coatings combat ghosting and flare by absorbing light reflecting off digital camera sensors or internal lens elements. An aspherical lens element delivers crisp, high contrast images - even with the aperture fully open.

Circular aperture
For shots taken at full aperture, a circular aperture diaphragm creates smooth, even blur to your background, helping to emphasise subjects and remove distractions.

Lead-free glass
Only environmentally-friendly, lead-free glass is used in the construction of the EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS.

Accessories
The EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS is supplied with a lens cap and dust cap. A lens hood (EW-60C) and lens case (LP814) are available as optional accessories.
