EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS
This is an extended-range zoom lens, with coverage roughly equivalent to about a 28–200mm lens on a traditional film camera. It's a modern, surprisingly lightweight design, with Image Stabilization that allows hand-holding at shutter speeds up to 4 stops slower than would otherwise be possible. The broad zoom range makes it an ideal travel lens for amateur users, but it's also potentially useful for institutional or business users who occasionally need longer telephoto coverage. Like all EF-S lenses, it's exclusively for compatible EOS cameras with the smaller APS-C size imaging sensor.
- An excellent and versatile choice for outdoor work, and Image Stabilization makes it practical for shooting in many dimly-lit conditions as well
- Great step-up from standard zoom for photographers wanting more telephoto coverage, without losing real wide-angle capabilities as well
- Close-focusing down to 1.5 feet (0.45m); can fill the frame with a subject about 4.4x3 inches (11x7.5cm) in size
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
