Detailed Features

Take a more detailed look into the Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II

Affordable, high-quality zoom


The EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II 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, the working distance is 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 II incorporates Canon’s four-stop Image Stabilizer technology. This allows photographers to use shutter speeds up to four 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 wide apertures, a circular aperture diaphragm gives a smooth, even blur to your background, helping to emphasise foreground 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 II.

Accessories


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