EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II
A standard zoom lens with a short back focus (thus the acronym EF-S) the EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II is your everyday go to lens for all types of photography. Due to the crop factor of 1.6x on Canons APS-C sensor powered cameras the lens becomes a mid-range tele-lens and is ideal for portraits, travel and other types of photography. The lens comes with four stops of image shake correction for superior hand-held photography.
In response to demands of photographers, this standard zoom lens is designed with Canon's Optical Image Stabilizer technology while retaining the compactness and lightness of previous models. Its stabilization allows sharp hand-held shots at shutter speeds up to four stops slower than otherwise possible. It consists of 11 elements in 9 groups and uses an Aspherical lens element to correct aberration for excellent image quality throughout the zoom range and a circular aperture for exquisite rendering of out-of-focus backgrounds. Without a lot of size, weight or cost, this lens expands picture-taking possibilities any time slow shutter speeds are needed.
