Features

High performance in a small, lightweight package, the EF-S 18–55mm f/4–5.6 IS STM puts a versatile zoom range of 18–55mm into a compact, non-retracting body that's easy to carry. Its optical system is designed to help ensure high image quality while keeping the lens compact and easily portable so it stays out of the way and is with you when you need it. Bring the EF-S 18–55mm f/4–5.6 IS STM and your camera with you in your daypack or camera bag so you can capture life's adventures on a hike, vacation or in your own backyard.

When it comes to recording video, you want to be sure you capture all the subtle sounds of what you're recording. Thanks to its lead screw-type stepping motor (STM), the EF-S 18–55mm f/4–5.6 IS STM focuses smoothly and near-silently. There's virtually no mechanical noise from the lens to distract in your movie – just the dialogue, music or other important sounds you want to capture.

For consistently sharp results, the EF-S 18–55mm f/4–5.6 IS STM features an improved Image Stabilizer system that provides enhanced shake reduction for up to 4 stops* of shutter speeds. This means more reliable handheld performance and clearer detail in low-light situations, without having to increase the ISO or decrease the shutter speed. Because of its enhanced stabilization, the EF-S 18–55mm f/4–5.6 IS STM can also help minimize the need for a tripod.

* Based on CIPA (Camera & Imaging Products Association) standards. Testing performed using the EOS 7D Mark II digital SLR camera at a focal length of 55mm, 35mm-equivalent 88mm. The number of stops may vary based on the camera model used.

The innovative design of the EF-S 18–55mm f/4–5.6 IS STM combines style and usability. The exterior of the lens is textured with a black leather coating that allows for a precise grip that feels comfortable in your hand. The smooth-turning focus and zoom rings were designed for ease of use and accurate movement. A platinum ring behind the zoom ring adds a touch of sophistication, and the EF-S 18–55mm f/4–5.6 IS STM's non-retracting design combined with its lightweight body makes it easy to carry with you wherever you go.

MTF Charts

A Modulation Transfer Function (MTF) chart measures a lens’ expected optical performance at the center of the picture area and measures repeatedly along the diagonal line, further and further toward the corners of the image. The higher a curve is shown on the chart, the better the lens is performing in the area the chart is measuring. As a curve moves from left to right, it displays the lens' results from center towards the corners. For more information on understanding how to read Canon Lens MTF charts, please click here.
