The Canon 10-18mm EF-S IS STM Lens is designed for Canon’s extensive APS-C DSLR camera range. It represents a high quality, affordable ultra-wide angle zoom that is well suited to DSLR filmmakers thanks to its Image Stabilisation and smooth Stepping Motor focusing.
With a 35mm equivalent focal range of 16-29mm, the lens delivers flexible composition possibilities ensuring your final result perfectly matches your creative vision. It allows beginner and enthusiast photographers and filmmakers to shoot in confined spaces and explore the exciting world of landscape photography.
The f/4.5-5.6 aperture is complemented by built-in Image Stabilisation (IS) to deliver excellent edge-to-edge detail and minimise camera shake, ensuring your images are tack-sharp. The stabilizer is especially useful when shooting in low-light scenarios and yields an approximate four-stop advantage. This equips you with the ability to use a slower shutter speed to capture the real-life ambience of the scene without resorting to artificial flash lighting.
Autofocusing is fast and accurate thanks to Canon’s Stepping Motor (STM) technology which delivers smooth, whisper quiet movement that is ideal for DSLR filmmaking. When used in conjunction with the Canon EOS Movie Servo AF mode, it is capable of producing beautifully smooth pull-focus transition effects and will continuously autofocus smoothly, eliminating the ‘focus hunting’ that can occur in lenses not equipped with STM.
Its optical construction consists of an Ultra-Low Dispersion (UD) element which is used to correct chromatic aberration and deliver excellent colour and detail throughout the zoom range. Anti-reflective coatings are also utilised to minimise flare and ghosting resulting in better contrast and increased overall clarity.
Weighing approximately 240g, the compact and lightweight design of the Canon EF-S 10-18mm IS STM lens combined with the STM autofocusing and image stabilisation ensures this lens is ideal for a broad range of photo and video scenarios.
