EF-S 18-135mm f3.5-5.6 IS

Canon press release 1 September 2009

Canon today strengthens its EF-S series of lenses with the launch of the EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS. The lens matches the style and performance of Canon’s new APS-C sensor camera – the Canon EOS 7D.   

The EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS is a powerful all-in-one lens for EOS EF-S mount bodies. It features a 4-stop Image Stabilizer and a 7.5x super zoom range. The lens covers a wide range of focal lengths with a 0.45m minimum focusing distance. A general-purpose zoom, it is ideal for photographers looking to make the step up from a standard kit lens. 

The lens offers great low-light performance due to the inclusion of a 
4-stop image stabilizer that automatically detects panning and tripods, responding accordingly to help photographers take steady shots in any situation.

The addition of ultra low dispersion (UD) lenses and aspherical lens elements – as well as lens coatings optimised to combat ghosting and flare – ensure high quality throughout. Both products also include a circular aperture for beautiful background blur (bokeh). 

The lens features Canon’s updated exterior design that offers an improved high-grade look and feel compared with previous EF-S lenses. 

Offering a wide range of focal lengths it is an ideal all-purpose lenses.
