The EF-M 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Lens from Canon is a standard zoom lens that's exclusively built for the EOS M Digital Camera. 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.
