Compact standard zoom is designed for APS-C-format Canon EF-S-mount DSLRs, and offers a 28.8-88mm equivalent focal length range.
One aspherical element is used to reduce distortion and spherical aberrations throughout the zoom range in order to maintain sharpness and clarity.
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.
A Micro Motor autofocus system provides quick focusing performance and a dedicated AF/MF switch allows for quick switching between auto and manual focusing methods.
Minimum focusing distance of 9.8" is available throughout the zoom range for working with close-up subjects.
Rounded six-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing out of focus quality that benefits the use of shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques.

question

is this a macro lens for capturing tiny details and does it fit Powershot SX700 HS? If not please advise how to accomplish this. Thanks
Asked by: Anonymous
The Canon EF-S 18-55mm lens is not a macro lens. The Canon Powershot SX700 HS is a point and shoot camera and cannot accept an SLR lens, however, this camera has a macro setting which is designated by the symbol of a flower.
