Canon has announced the launch of a new standard zoom lens.
The new EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM is the perfect lens for EOS 700D and EOS 100D users to start their photography adventure. From sweeping landscapes to portraits, the versatile 18-55mm zoom range means users can enjoy the flexibility of getting close to subjects or getting more in the shot.
Images are captured with precision detail and clarity thanks to a 4-stop Optical Image Stabilizer, which also lets photographers use lower ISO levels and longer shutter speeds. The full time manual focus ring allows users to make precise focus adjustments, while the near-silent STM technology also ensures noise is kept to a minimum whilst focusing – perfect for when capturing movies.
