A superior performance, ultra-compact telephoto zoom lens with Canon's Image Stabilization. These Diffractive Optics elements are combined to reduce size and boost image quality. AF is super-fast and silent with a ring-type USM, and it focuses down to 4.6 feet without rotating the front element. A new zoom lock button keeps the lens safe and secure when not in use or used at the wide angle.
- 3 UD elements eliminate secondary spectrum chromatic aberration
- Three-layer type DO (Diffractive Optics) lens is optimised for zoom lens optics and provides class-leading low size and weight
- Optimised lens coating to minimise ghosting and flare
- Zoom ring locking mechanism that locks the lens at its shortest total length
- Image Stabilizer gives equivalent effect of a shutter speed three stops faster during hand-held shooting
- Circular aperture producing attractive background defocus
- Manual focusing enabled even during the AF mode
