The Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/4-5.6 IS STM is a normal-range kit lens designed for Canon’s crop-frame cameras. Key features include:
4-stop image stabilization
28.8-88mm Full Frame Equivalent
STM Autofocus Motor
Cost Effective Walkaround Lens
EF-S Standard Zoom. With a focal length equivalent to 28.8-88mm, it covers the semi-wide to short telephoto focal range.
Optical Image Stabilization. The built-in IS unit provides up to four stops of correction.
STM Motor. The internal stepping autofocus motor supports Canon’s EOS Movie Servo AF, allowing smooth and continuous autofocus during video recording on compatible cameras.
Common Uses. Serves as a good walk-around lens for shooting outdoors in daylight with Canon crop-frame cameras. Its f/4-5.6 aperture is a bit too slow to use in low light, but can be supplemented with fill-flash.
This lens is designed for cameras with an APS-C / Super35 sensor and does not cover a full-frame sensor.
