The Canon 18-55mm EF-S f/4-5.6 IS STM is a lightweight, versatile lens featuring optical image stabilisation and a silent stepping AF motor. The standard zoom range lens is perfect for everyday use, from portraiture and event photography to wide-angle landscape shots.
Versatile Zoom Range
Designed for use with APS-C-format DSLR’s, the 18-55mm lens has an ultra-versatile zoom range that makes it an excellent all-rounder lens. The compact lens weighs only 215 grams and packs easily into a backpack or satchel, making it a convenient choice for everyday use shooting wildlife, sporting events, portraits, wide-angle group shots, and more.
Silent Stepping AF Motor
The lens features a lead screw-type stepping motor (STM) that provides smooth, silent and precise autofocus without any mechanical noise, which is especially handy for capturing videos with quiet dialogue or nature scenes.
Optical Image Stabiliser (OIS)
An improved optical image stabilisation (OIS) system allows the lens to compensate for up to 4-stops of camera shake to ensure sharper images when shooting handheld, particularly in low-lighting conditions. Using the built-in OIS you can shoot still subjects needing a tripod, and capture sharp images without increasing the ISO.
Lightweight Stylish Design
The EF-S 18–55 mm f/4–5.6 lens from Canon has a stylish, textured easy-to-grip focus barrel while the smooth focus and zoom rings are conveniently positioned to maximum control.
