EF-S18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II

Despite a compact, lightweight design that makes it highly portable, this lens includes a newly developed image stabilization mechanism. The IS provides camera shake compensation up to an equivalent of approximately four full shutter speed steps*1, enabling natural looking photos in dim environments under existing light. Tack-sharp images and a 0.25m/9.8inch minimum shooting distance are maintained over the entire zoom range. Flare and ghost are minimal, and the circular aperture produces beautiful background blur effects. Also featuring high-speed autofocus, this IS zoom lens is an excellent choice as “standard” lens.

NOTE: Can only be used with digital SLR cameras that support EF-S lenses. Compatible with EOS Digital SLR cameras: EOS 50D, EOS 40D, EOS 30D, EOS 20D, EOS 20Da, EOS Kiss X2/DIGITAL REBEL XSi/450D, EOS Kiss F/DIGITAL REBEL XS/1000D, EOS Kiss Digital X/DIGITAL REBEL XTi/400D DIGITAL, EOS Kiss Digital N/DIGITAL REBEL Xt/350D DIGITAL, EOS Kiss Digital/DIGITAL REBEL/300D DIGITAL (as of August 2008)
