Key Features

An impressively lightweight wide-angle zoom, the RF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-6.3 IS STM Lens from Canon provides high-quality imagery and peak mobility. Designed for APS-C-format RF-mount mirrorless cameras, this lens gives a 16-29mm full-frame equivalent focal length range. In-lens optical image stabilization offers four stops of correction, or six stops with Coordinated IS when paired with a compatible camera. Two ultra-low dispersion elements and one aspherical element help create sharper images and reduce chromatic and spherical aberrations. The RF-S 10-18mm benefits from Canon's Super Spectra coating, which minimizes ghosting and flare while boosting contrast. Additionally, this lens attaches to both APS-C and full-frame EOS R-series cameras without the need for an adapter because of its RF-mount.

Smooth, Quiet Autofocus
A lead screw-type STM stepping AF motor drives the RF-S 10-18mm, producing near-silent autofocus for photo and video applications. Full-time manual focus override is available allowing for more options when focusing, which is particularly useful for close-up work. Any out-of-focus areas of your frame are rendered more visually pleasing by the lens's seven-blade diaphragm.
Incredibly Lightweight
Weighing just 5.3 oz and measuring 1.8", this wide-angle zoom is the perfect travel companion that allows you to shoot handheld for hours without discomfort. While the lens's compactness allows you to store it in most camera bags, its versatile zoom range is practical for vlogging as well as an array of shooting applications such as landscape, interior, nature, and architecture photography.

Asked by: Suren
The 10-18mm f/4 does not come with a lens hood. It would need to be purchased separately. I'll provide a link to the proper lens hood if you are interested. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1793983-REG/canon_6264c001_ew_53b_lens_hood.html
