EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM
An already-impressive EF-S lens has been completely updated with an eye toward EOS Movie shooting. The most important new feature is STM technology — a unique stepping motor is used for AF, providing the super-smooth and quiet AF needed for Canon’s latest movie servo AF. STM focusing likewise is a big benefit for Live View shooting of still images. And, the AF remains powerful, quick and quiet for conventional still shooting, too. The broad zoom coverage (equivalent to a 28-200mm lens on a full-frame camera) makes this lens ideal for many video and still applications, even for experienced enthusiasts.
- Totally re-designed version of the previous EF-S 18-135mm IS lens; improved resolution, closer minimum focus, and slight reduction in overall length
- New: Electronic manual focusing… when focus ring is turned, lens actually focuses using the internal STM AF motor — result is positive and super-smooth manual focus, with full-time MF available if camera’s custom functions are set for “back-button” AF activation
- Light, easy handling, and up to 4 stops of Image Stabilization correction (applicable to both hand-held video shooting and still shooting)
- New Dynamic IS further targets HD video user — specifically reduces shake at wide focal lengths when walking with subject during recording
