EF-S 18-55mm f4-5.6 IS STM

introduced 15 February 2017

Excerpt from Canon press release

Alongside the new EOS cameras – EOS 77D and 800D – Canon welcomes the EF-S 18-55mm f4-5.6 IS STM – the smallest non-retractable DSLR kit lens of its focal range (among 18-55mm non-retractable lenses as at February 2017, according to Canon research).

The new EF-S 18-55mm f4-5.6 IS STM kit lens is an ideal lens to get started with and complements an all-rounder DSLR with the capability to shoot a wide range of pictures, from landscape to portraits. The smallest in its class, the lens is packed with a 4-stop Image Stabilizer for steady low-light or full zoom shots, 7 blade circular aperture for pleasing background blur in portraits. For video scenes Servo AF with near-silent STM is perfect for focusing without distracting noise.

EF-S 18-55mm f4-5.6 IS STM key features:

• Compact design
• 61.8mm long and weighs just 215g
• 4-stop Image Stabilizer
• STM mechanism for near-silent shooting

Accessories
The EF-S 18-55mm f4-5.6 IS STM is supplied with a lens cap and dust cap. A lens hood (EW-63C) and lens soft case (LP1016) are available as optional accessories.
