Our Silent Wave Motor (SWM)’s ultra-quiet autofocussing complements the refined optics by ensuring that your subjects are always in precise focus.



For effortless performance, this powerful zoom lens features our Vibration Reduction image stabilisation.

You’ll capture stunningly sharp photos and HD videos when shooting handheld, as well as images with crisp edges when shooting in low-light conditions.
