Canon RF-S 18-45mm f/4.5-6.3 IS STM Overview

By B&H Photo's

A versatile zoom range in a compact package is the promise of the Canon RF-S 18-45mm f/4.5-6.3 IS STM Lens. Made specifically for Canon's APS-C-format R Series mirrorless line, it delivers a wide-angle to short telephoto equivalent zoom range of 29-72mm. Plus, a retractable design makes it ideal for everyday carry where you want to stuff the camera in a bag.

Canon has taken care with the optical design, using two aspherical elements and the Super Spectra Coating to minimize aberrations and reduce ghosting and flare. An Optical Image Stabilizer will help ensure sharp imagery, providing up to 4 stops of shake correction or up to 6 stops of Coordinated IS with a compatible camera body. Additionally, the lead screw-type STM AF system is fast enough to keep up with speedy continuous focus while being smooth and quiet enough to work for video.

Product photos show a lens hood but the hood is not included in the "Whats is the box" list. Is a hood included? Yea or Nay.
Asked by: Rod
The Canon RF-S 18-45mm f/4.5-6.3 IS STM Lens only includes the rear/front caps and a Canon USA warranty in the box. The Canon EW-53 Lens Hood (B&H # CAEW53 • MFR # 0579C001) is the dedicated lens hood which is sold separately.
