Canon EF-S 10-18mm f / 4.5-5.6 IS STM Lens
A flexible wide-angle zoom in a compact form factor, the Canones EF-S 10-18mm f / 4.5-5.6 IS STM is a 16-28.8mm equivalent lens designed for EF-S mount DSLRs. To help reduce overall size while maintaining high optical quality, a four-group zoom design is employed in conjunction with an ultra-low dispersion element, an aspherical element, and a large-diameter element to produce crisp, clear images without chromatics and spherical. aberrations. A Super Spectra coating has also been applied to suppress flare and ghosting to increase contrast and color neutrality. Taking advantage of photo and video applications, an STM stepping AF motor is used to achieve fast and near-silent autofocus performance along with full-time manual focus override. Additionally, an effective four-stop Image Stabilizer system is also included that minimizes the appearance of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting.
The wide angle zoom is designed for APS-C format EF-S mount Canon DSLRs and provides a 16-28.8mm equivalent focal length range.
An ultra-low dispersion glass element dramatically reduces color fringing and chromatic aberrations for high clarity and color fidelity.
An aspherical element limits distortion and spherical aberration for greater sharpness and accurate rendering.
Super Spectra coating has been applied to individual elements to minimize ghosting and flare for greater contrast and color neutrality when working in bright lighting conditions.
An Optical Image Stabilizer helps minimize the appearance of camera shake by up to four shutter speed stops to allow better performance in low light conditions and slower shutter speeds.
An STM stepping AF motor performs smooth, near-silent autofocus that is complemented by a rear focus system, advanced AF algorithms, and a high-speed CPU for fast AF performance. In addition, full-time manual focus override is also available.
The rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasant blur quality that benefits the use of shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques.
