The Canon EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM Lens is a wide-angle zoom lens designed specifically for EOS APS-C DSLRs, where it provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 16-28.8mm. The optical design incorporates one aspherical element, one UD (Ultra-low dispersion) element, and one large-diameter element to minimize chromatic aberrations throughout the zoom range and contribute to notable image sharpness and clarity.
Enhanced lens coatings have also been applied to lens elements to minimize lens flare and ghosting for maintained image contrast and colour neutrality.
Benefitting working in difficult lighting conditions, an Optical Image Stabilizer has been integrated into the Canon EF-S 10-18mm lens design to minimize the appearance of camera shake by up to an effective four shutter speed steps.
Pairing well with Canon’s EOS Movie Servo AF, an STM stepping AF motor produces smooth, near-silent focusing performance that is further benefitted by a rear-focus design, high-speed CPU, and intelligent AF algorithms for quickened focusing. Full-time manual focus override can also be utilized for fine-tuned focusing precision as closely as 8.7″.

The Canon EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM lens combines optical excellence with cutting-edge performance, providing an ultra-wide angle of view in a compact, portable package, perfect for EOS cameras with an APS-C sensor. It has a 4 group optical zoom system and includes a large-diameter element, an aspherical lens element, a UD lens element and enhanced lens coatings for high-contrast, high-resolution images with minimal glare and aberration.
A circular, 7-blade aperture helps ensure fine background blur and the Canon Optical Image Stabilizer system provides up to four equivalent stops of shake correction.
The Canon EF-S 10-18mm lens has a stepping motor (STM) and a refined focus mechanism for smooth and continuous AF during video recording. It also has a rear focusing system, plus a high speed CPU and improved AF algorithm for high-speed AF; and offers full-time manual focus for quick adjustments.
The EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM delivers reliable, speedy and quiet wide-angle performance, making it an ideal lens for everyday photography, travel, stills and video recording.
A flexible wide-angle zoom in a compact form factor, the EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM from Canon is a 16-28.8mm equivalent lens designed for EF-S-mount DSLRs. Helping to reduce the overall size while maintaining high optical quality, a four-group zoom design is employed along with one ultra-low dispersion element, one aspherical element, and one large-diameter element to produce sharp, clear imagery void of chromatic and spherical aberrations.
A Super Spectra coating has also been applied to suppress flare and ghosting for increased contrast and colour neutrality. Benefitting both photo and video applications, an STM stepping AF motor is used to realize quick and near-silent autofocus performance along with full-time manual focus override. Additionally, a four-stop-effective Image Stabilizer system is also featured and minimizes the appearance of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting.
- Wide-angle zoom is designed for APS-C-format Canon EF-S-mount DSLRs and provides a 16-28.8mm equivalent focal length range.
- One ultra-low dispersion glass element noticeably reduces colour fringing and chromatic aberrations for high clarity and colour fidelity.
- One aspherical element limits distortion and spherical aberration in order to realize greater sharpness and accurate rendering.
- Super Spectra coating has been applied to individual elements to minimize ghosting and flare for greater contrast and colour neutrality when working in strong lighting conditions.
- An Optical Image Stabilizer helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake by up to four shutter speed stops to better enable working in low-light conditions and with slower shutter speeds.
- An STM stepping AF motor realizes smooth, near-silent autofocus that is complemented by a rear focus system, advanced AF algorithms, and a high-speed CPU for fast AF performance. Additionally, full-time manual focus override is also available.
- Rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing out of focus quality that benefits the use of shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques.
Compact, lightweight ultra-wide angle zoom lens
Compact and lightweight 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 Stabiliser
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 Stabiliser 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.
A DSLR Camera is ideal when you want superior quality and you can get the ultimate DSLR lens you need for you specific photographic event. Also if you need to print in big sizes this is the only medium you should look at.
DSLR cameras have large sensors and therefore capture more info and that gives you more detail with the correct DSLR lens, Digital SLR Camera Bodies can be upgraded and you can keep your old lens makes this the best way to upgrade your camera in the future and be current.
This is some of the Camera Specials we have on Digital Cameras for sale from Foto Discount World. Digital SLR Cameras as well as Mirrorless Cameras and Compact Digital Cameras On Sale.
