Canon EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM Overview

A flexible wide-angle zoom in a compact form factor, the EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM from Canon is a 16-28.8mm equivalent lens designed for EF-S-mount DSLRs. Helping to reduce the overall size while maintaining high optical quality, a four-group zoom design is employed along with one ultra-low dispersion element, one aspherical element, and one large-diameter element to produce sharp, clear imagery void of chromatic and spherical aberrations. A Super Spectra coating has also been applied to suppress flare and ghosting for increased contrast and color neutrality. Benefitting both photo and video applications, an STM stepping AF motor is used to realize quick and near-silent autofocus performance along with full-time manual focus override. Additionally, a four-stop-effective Image Stabilizer system is also featured and minimizes the appearance of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting.

Wide-angle zoom is designed for APS-C-format Canon EF-S-mount DSLRs and provides a 16-28.8mm equivalent focal length range.
One ultra-low dispersion glass element noticeably reduces color fringing and chromatic aberrations for high clarity and color fidelity.
One aspherical element limits distortion and spherical aberration in order to realize greater sharpness and accurate rendering.
Super Spectra coating has been applied to individual elements to minimize ghosting and flare for greater contrast and color neutrality when working in strong lighting conditions.
An Optical Image Stabilizer helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake by up to four shutter speed stops to better enable working in low-light conditions and with slower shutter speeds.
An STM stepping AF motor realizes smooth, near-silent autofocus that is complemented by a rear focus system, advanced AF algorithms, and a high-speed CPU for fast AF performance. Additionally, full-time manual focus override is also available.
Rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing out of focus quality that benefits the use of shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques.

Canon EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM Reviews

Decent lens

By Matthew
Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2022-06-07

It's a decent lens for the money. The fact it can go down to 10mm is attractive. I have noticed some barrel distortion on pano pictures but that is easily corrected in post.

Fantastic Wide Angle

By Bryce

Using this lens with a 90D and even with the 90D not being a full frame sensor this gets a nice wide shot there is very little if any distortion. The STM focus is very quiet on for video and the quality is great. The only downside is it does need a good amount of light for it to work right, but if being used outdoors in the daytime that is not an issue.

Great Lens

I bought this lens about 10 months ago and so far the image and build quality has been excellent, although the lens has noticeable distortion and chromatic aberration towards the edges the images came out great. The lens is not the greatest in low light but that is to be expected from a wide-angle lens in this price range

Good wide angle lens

I had been looking for a wide angle lens that wasn't a fish eye, to capture a greater area of landscapes and such. This one is especially nice as it keeps distortion low! Also doesn't suffer from chromatic aberrations as much as some others do.

Super Value High Performance Must Have Lens

By James
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-02-15

High performance, low cost lens is extremely useful and truly expands your capabilities in many situations. The ability to capture extra wide images adds a new dimension to one's repertoire. This lens is sharp enough with good bokeh. One can shoot large objects and buildings without running a quarter mile away. You can get closer and still see a large view, avoiding the narrow tunnel vision provided by normal lenses. It is great for capturing large groups, especially indoors, and expansive landscapes without stitching multiple images as a panorama in post processing programs to get the big picture. It is especially adept in museums, factories, restaurants and other close quarters where you want a wide, full view. While it is not a professional lens with a price tag to match - it IS a good, high quality, reasonably sharp low distortion, useful lens at an affordable price. It definitely punches above its weight class. I wish I had purchased this lens years ago. As always, B&H promptly and safely delivered the right item at a competitive price. JR

Asked by: Dindo
I tried this lens but returned it, it is fine up 20-24 megapixel, not good enough for my 90D which is 32.5 mp, my Sony is a full frame A7R full frame and I use the MC11 and it works well, but I cannot say about the 6300, I think the MC11 would work and the lens likely would be fine, buy from BH and you can return if it don’t satisfy.

Asked by: Lisa
Yes this lens will function on the Canon EOS R with an EF-R adapter. However, the lens is formatted for APS-C, so there will be a reduction in your resolution and vignetting.

question

I noticed this lens is Comparable to a 35mm Focal Length: 16 - 28.8 mm. What does this exactly mean? I already have a 17-50 tamron lens but I wanted a wider angle lens. Thanks
Asked by: Anonymous
The focal length on an APS-C sized sensor is 16-28.8mm compared to if this were a 35mm or full frame sized sensor, as an APS-C sized sensor has a 1.6x crop on most Canon cameras. Check out the Sigma 8-16mm f/4.5-5.6, which will give you a focal length equivalent to 12-24mm: http://bhpho.to/1rRooRz
