The EF-M 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Lens from Canon is a standard zoom lens that's designed for the EOS M series digital cameras. The focal length is equivalent to approximately 29-88mm in the 35mm format, which makes it a versatile everyday lens.

The lens features Canon's optical image stabilization technology, which provides up to four equivalent stops of shake correction for eliminating image blur caused by camera movement and slow shutter speeds. This enables clear, crisp imaging, even in dim light. Equipped with Movie Servo AF, the EF-M lens provides smooth and silent autofocus which is important when shooting video. It also features Dynamic IS, which provides image stabilization in video mode and can reduce the shakes that accompany a video shot while walking.

The EF-M lens has a seven blade, circular aperture. This promotes beautiful, soft backgrounds. Plus, optimized lens placement and coatings ensure minimized ghosting and flare. The lens also features three aspherical elements, which reduce aberration throughout the zoom range and create high resolution, high contrast images.

The product comes supplied in a plain white box, instead of the manufacturer's packaging. It includes all the manufacturer's accessories.

          Pros: Very good IQ.
          Well made feeling solid
          Good price point
          Cons: Only gave it 4 stars because I'm not
          convinced I can see a difference in IQ with
          or without IS on this lens.
          Would also have like longer zoom range but
          certainly knew beforehand what I was
          purchasing.

          Works well when you don't want to use the 22mm f2.0. It's light and has a metal mount.

          Comments about Canon EF-M 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Lens (White Box):

          While trendy opinion makers will follow each other to proclaim how poor the EOS M is as a camera, I just use it and get what I need from it. It's a good, powerful compact aps c camera. The lens does matter though. The 18-55 will slow it down in lower light though the camera's firmware update renders its AF speed the same as other cameras in this style particularly with the 22mm pancake. For whatever reason the 18-55 is sometimes difficult to focus; also for manual operation I have to set the camera to full manual. That aside the image is quite good. I think it's slightly softer than the 22mm at certain stops. If you find any anomalies remember that Lightroom takes care of them instantly. So what is the lens good for? The image stabilization works well for video. The stm motor also keeps the focus decently in good light. Perhaps it takes work to outfit it with the rigging capabilities of 'pro' gear but you know what? Who cares about any of that, really? It can be done. People work themselves into fits trying to fit in with what they believe is expected. Life is full of objects to be used creatively. The M with it's 2 lenses and adaptor can be used as creatively as the photographer is willing to be creative. I love it.
