EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM
This is a premium-grade standard lens for any EF-S compatible camera, giving coverage equivalent to 24-135mm on a traditional film camera. Optical performance is excellent, with good sharpness throughout the broad zoom range, and its smooth, solid mechanical quality is a marked step above entry-level standard lenses. It's a great choice for travel, weddings, and any application where one lens that can cover many tasks is desired. Its Image Stabilization allows shooting hand-held at shutter speeds up to 4 stops slower than otherwise possible, further increasing this lens's practicality.
- Great lens for any business or professional user needing to document various subjects, and needing a broad zoom range to cover different types of subjects
- Virtually silent and fast ring-type Ultrasonic Motor AF; allows full-time manual focusing, with the lens still in its AF mode (simply turn the manual focus ring)
- Relatively compact design, in spite of strong, solid build quality
Note: Canon EF-S lenses are exclusively for compatible APS-C sensor cameras (EOS 20D through 60D, EOS 7D, and all versions of EOS digital Rebel), and cannot be mounted or used on other Canon EOS digital or film SLR bodies
