Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM Lens

The Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM is a all-around zoom optimized for capturing both stills and video, is a 28.8 thru 216mm equivalent lens engineered for APS-C-format DSLRs. Integrating NANO USM technology, this lens features the combination of a fast, still image-optimized ring-type Ultrasonic Motor and silent, smooth, video-optimized Stepping Motor for versatile focusing operation to benefit multimedia type image-makers.

This dual-purpose autofocus motor also offers notably faster performance through the entire zoom range for more receptive shooting from near to far. In addition, also promoting both photo and movie recording, an Image Stabilizer function compensates for as much as four stops of camera shake for crisper handheld shooting, while a Dynamic IS function specifically assists in reducing camera shake when capturing video.

The lens is also congruent with the optional PZ-E1 Power Zoom Adapter for added native and controllable zooming operation. Updated to handle the increasing presence of video in a photographer's productivity, this zoom is versatile in both focus treatment as well as with its wide-angle thru telephoto reach.

One Ultra-Low Dispersion element is featured, in the optical design along with a single PMo (precision molded) aspherical element, to diminish chromatic aberrations through the entire zoom range as well as curb spherical aberrations and distortions, for enhanced clarity and sharpness.

A standard zoom engineered for APS-C-format Canon DSLRs, this 18-135mm lens offers a 28.8 thru 216mm equivalent focal length range that handles wide-angle thru telephoto perspectives.

The optical layout makes use of one UD element and one aspherical element to diminish chromatic and spherical aberrations all through the entire zoom range for increased clarity.

NANO USM system features both a ring type USM and an STM device to handle quick and precise focusing that is also smooth and nearly-silent to handle both photography and video operation. This focusing system also delivers full-time manual focus control when shooting in the single-shot AF mode.

An Image Stabilizer indemnifies up to four stops of camera shake for crisper handheld photography and also offers a Dynamic IS setting for smoother video outcome.

The exterior of the lens has a smooth satin finish, metal lens mount, committed focus mode with Image Stabilizer switches, plus a black ring that definitely separates the zoom and focus rings for intuitive use and an aesthetic look.

An optional PZ-E1 Power Zoom Adapter can be employed for smoother, more innate and silent zooming control when capturing video.
