Canon EF-S 18-55mm Lens

The Canon EF-S 18-55mm lens f/3.5-5.6 is a wide-angle to mid telephoto zoom lens for digital single-lens reflex cameras with an EF-S lens mount. The field of view has a 35 mm equivalent focal length of 28.8-88mm, and it is the standard kit lens on Canon's consumer DSLRs.

There have been four releases of this lens:

  • Mk I (USM and non-USM),
  • Mk II (USM and non-USM)
addressing sharpness in the original lens, and
  • IS (non-USM only)
addressing general image quality problems of the Mk II.

The 18–55 IS is currently sold as a bundled kit lens with Canon's consumer DSLRs, replacing the 18–55 Mk I/II (USM-less version) in this role.

On 7 February 2011, the 18-55mm 1:3.5-5.6 IS III was announced to be bundled with the Canon 600D and 1100D. This lens is identical in specification to the previous version, and features exactly the same optics and IS system, but has a revised external design.
