The EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS features Canon’s 4-stop Image Stabilizer (IS). Ideal for low light conditions when a tripod can’t be used, the Image Stabilizer system allows shutter speeds of up to 4 stops slower than normal to be used without causing image blur.
The EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS also features a textured exterior finish for a sophisticated look and feel that matches your EOS camera.
A new DC autofocus motor combined with a high-speed CPU and improved AF algorithm enables quick and accurate auto focus performance.
Canon’s Super Spectra lens coating is used to prevent flare and ghosting, which are more prone to occur with digital cameras due to reflection off the image sensor. The use of optimised lens coatings prevent flare and ghosting and ensure excellent color balance and contrast.
A 6-blade circular aperture enables you to blur your background creatively. This can be used to enhance portraits by creatively blurring background detail making the subject more striking.
