EF S 18 55 IS STM FRA

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.

Key Features:
  • Versatile focal length range
  • Compact design
  • Four-stop optical Image Stabilizer
  • Smooth focusing with STM motor
  • 0.25m closest focusing distance
  • Super Spectra Coating
  • Non-rotating front element
  • Manual focus ring
  • Circular seven-bladed aperture
The EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM is available from late April, with an SRP of £239.99.

This is ludicrous, 250$/240 for a plastic crap. Canon has gone mad.

It is not plastic. Same build as 18-135 kit lens. Crap is matter of opinion.
