The Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Lens is a versatile standard zoom lens that boasts a useful wide- angle to telephoto focal range suitable for a host of uses from general photography to travel, portraiture and action. It features an all-new “stepping motor” (STM) AF system that provides fast and super-quiet autofocusing, ideal for capturing video. High image quality is assured thanks to 4 elements including a UD lens and PMo aspheric lens to keep chromatic aberration to a minimum whilst Super Spectra lens coatings minimize ghosting and flare. Intelligent Optical Image Stabiliser offers up to 4-stops compensation and detects whether the user is shooting normally or panning engaging the appropriate IS mode. Dynamic IS mode engages when shooting video to capture smooth, stable footage.

High Magnification EF-S Standard Zoom Lens – The Canon 18-135 has a useful focal range for a wide variety of photographic purposes from travel and portraiture to action and movies. For use with Canon APS-C DSLR cameras.
Quiet and Smooth Movie Servo AF – a new stepping motor and focusing mechanism delivers very smooth and super-quiet autofocusing, ideally suited to shooting video where noisy focusing can be picked up by built-in or onboard mics. Perfect for use with the new EOS 650D that now offers continuous AF when shooting movies.
High Speed AF – a new high-speed CPU, optimized focusing algorithm and inner focusing system provides fast and accurate autofocusing.
Full-time Manual Focus – full-time override of autofocus so you can jump straight into manually focusing without having to switch out of AF mode.
Intelligent Optical Image Stabiliser - offers up to 4-stops compensation and detects whether the user is shooting normally or panning engaging the appropriate IS mode. Dynamic IS mode engages when shooting video to capture smooth, stable footage.
4 Lens Elements - Chromatic aberrations significantly reduced by using a UD lens and a PMo aspheric lens
Super Spectra Lens Coatings – minimize ghosting and flare for high contrast images.
Zoom Ring Lock – locks the zoom in place and prevents accidental extension of the lens.
7-bladed Circular Aperture – Creates pleasing look to out-of-focus elements of the image, particularly at wide aperture and at full telephoto zoom. An Electro Magnetic Diaphragm (EMD) allows very accurate control over aperture settings.
