Compact, lightweight ultra-wide angle zoom lens
Compact and lightweight (240g) with a compact design that’s ideal for travel, this ultra-wide angle 10-18mm zoom lens fits more in the frame – even when you are close to your subject - so you can capture more in every shot without stepping back. Designed for EOS DSLRs with APS-C sized sensors, it adds impact to landscapes, cityscapes and skies, and allows you to capture expansive interiors and architecture with ease.
Smooth, near-silent STM focusing in movies
Recording high quality movies that are always sharply focused is easy with STM (Stepping Motor Technology). It delivers steady near-silent continuous focusing, so your movies are smooth, and soundtracks only capture the surrounding sounds and not the noise of a focusing motor. The Image Stabilizer counteracts camera movement when shooting movies handheld.
Sharp images with 4-stop Image Stabilizer
The EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM delivers steadier shots in all situations, particularly when shooting handheld in low light. The lens incorporates a 4-stop optical Image Stabilizer to capture superb low light photos, as well as steadier movie footage.
Great image quality
Designed specifically for digital photography, the lens includes aspherical and UD lens elements, which correct any spherical and chromatic aberrations that might spoil your images. The lens also features a Super Spectra Coating that helps ensure accurate colour balance and high contrast as well as suppress flare and ghosting, for beautiful images in any lighting situation. An exclusive optional lens hood can further reduce the incidence of flare.
0.22m minimum focusing distance
With only a 0.22m focusing distance you can get closer to your subjects and still enjoy an ultra-wide field of view.
Take control with manual focus ring
Take control of your creativity with a dedicated manual focus control ring that allows full time manual focusing even when shooting movies or using a filter.
A 7-blade circular aperture allows for a pleasing background blur when shooting with a wide aperture; ideal for creating a sense of depth and getting your subject to stand out from the background.
