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