Product Overview

Canon EF-S 18-55mm F4-5.6 IS STM is a standard zoom lens for Canon EF-mount. It covers the APS-C image circle. Introduced by Canon in 2017 as the new "kit lens" for EF-S, it has 12 elements in 10 groups.
Like most zoom lenses, the Canon EF-S 18-55mm F4-5.6 IS STM is externally-zooming. Unfortunately, Canon has opted to omit weather sealing for this lens, so owners should pay extra attention when shooting in incremental weathers.
A standard zoom lens with moderate aperture, the Canon EF-S 18-55mm F4-5.6 IS STM is more of a "volume seller" than a premium option. Still, some photographers may find the results "good enough". The lens is also stabilized, making it even easier to use for videos and stills alike.
