A versatile wide-angle to telephoto zoom, this 18-150mm lens is designed for APS-C-format EF-M-mount mirrorless cameras, and provides a 28.8-240mm equivalent focal length range.
Optical design maintains even sharpness and illumination throughout the zoom range.
A maximum magnification of 0.31x and a minimum focusing distance of 9.8" at the 150mm focal length position benefits working with close-up subjects.
An Image Stabilizer minimizes the appearance of camera shake by up to four shutter speed stops for sharper handheld shooting.
When used in conjunction with the EOS M5 camera, Combination IS is available for enhanced image stabilization while shooting video, which employs both camera-based IS and lens-based IS for more effective correction.
Stabilized panning is also available with the EOS M5, which automatically adjusts the panning speed for more effective subject tracking.

Canon EF-M 18-150mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM Reviews

Good lens but plastic lens mount and too expensive?

By Thomas
Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2022-01-26

I bought three of these lenses for myself and two of my adult kids. I like this lens. It's compact and light. I haven't really checked just how good or poor the image quality is but mainly I don't expect great image quality from a lens with this zoom range. I bought it as a light travel kit with a Canon M5 for me and M50 for my two adult kids. The only downside I see is the price at $499 and that the lens mount is plastic. For $499 one would think the mount would be made of metal even if it added an ounce or two in weight. And the fact you have to pay an extra $29 for the lens hood. All that said, I did buy three of these lenses.

I am excited for a time for the conditons where I will need to use the range; where subjects might be close or ordinary distance, or might be a little further - a little far away.

Wanted a small camera, got the Canon M200 and just love it. To make me even more comfortable purchased the 18-150 This lens is great, you can get close when the opportunity presents itself or you can stand back a bit and compress. Love the lens and the compact camera

The Best Bet as an All-Around Zoom Lens for my Canon EOS M50

By Frederick
Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2020-06-05

I bought this lens as a single-lens-does-everything solution for my Canon EOS M50 camera, and am mostly happy with the result. The small size of the lens and excellent mechanical quality are strong points (the turning action of the zoom ring is easy and smooth). I also have the Canon 15-45mm and 55-200mm EF-M zoom lenses, and the Tamron 16-300mm EF zoom lens (which requires the Canon EF-EOS M mount adapter to attach to the M50). I am giving up considerable zoom range at both ends with the 18-150mm (compared to the other lenses), but gain the single lens advantage with the small size and weight. I was also hoping for optical superiority with the 18-150mm lens, but so far have not seen it. At 150mm, the 18-150mm is a touch softer than the 55-200mm set at 150mm. The Tamron 16-300mm and the 18-150mm are about equal at equivalent focal lengths, with a slight edge going to the 18-150mm. Nevertheless, the 18-150mm takes very nice, sharp pictures throughout it's zoom range.

Look out for the lens mount

The lens is as sharp as the rest of the M series. The issue is with the plastic mounting ring. I have the "old" 18-55 EF-M that has a metal lens mount. This was supposed to be a replacement. because of the greater range. Fortunately, the mount broke on my flight home from Japan. Canon replaced it since it was still in warranty. I still use this 18-150 extensively on my M6, however, my 18-55 is always near by on my M10 or M100 in case the 18-150 fails again. From what I see, this isn't the only lens in the M-series lineup that went to the plastic lens mount. I love the size of the M series since I can carry 3 bodies, with the 11-22, 18-55, 22, 70-300 (off brand), and a Canon 430EXIII-RTSpeedlite in a small gadget bag.

It may be unfair to compare this lens to the Canon RF 24-105 f/4L IS lens, but that is one that I use on my R5. I have the 18-150mm on a Canon M6 MKII and it is only ok throughout its range. I would not print larger that 11x14 or crop very much with this lens.

question

Would this lens be ideal for travel vlogging using selfie-mode or would the 15-45 lens be a better option?
Asked by: Josaih C.
The 15-45 lens is a much better option for selfies because it is so light and short and wider. The only reason to get the 18-150 mm lens is to take photos when traveling. This is highly useful for your Instagram account.
