A versatile zoom range in a compact package is the promise of the Canon RF-S 18-45mm f/4.5-6.3 IS STM Lens. Made specifically for Canon’s APS-C-format R Series mirrorless line, it delivers a wide-angle to short telephoto equivalent zoom range of 29-72mm. Plus, a retractable design makes it ideal for everyday carry where you want to stuff the camera in a bag.
Canon has taken care with the optical design, using two aspherical elements and the Super Spectra Coating to minimize aberrations and reduce ghosting and flare. An Optical Image Stabilizer will help ensure sharp imagery, providing up to 4 stops of shake correction or up to 6 stops of Coordinated IS with a compatible camera body. Additionally, the lead screw-type STM AF system is fast enough to keep up with speedy continuous focus while being smooth and quiet enough to work for video.
Offering a versatile zoom range in a lightweight and portable design, the Canon RF-S 55-210mm f/5-7.1 IS STM Lens is well-suited for sports and wildlife applications. Providing an 88-336mm equivalent focal length range, this sleek telephoto zoom lens is designed for APS-C-format EOS R-series mirrorless cameras. The lens also offers a minimum focusing distance of 2.3′ for working with close-up subjects. Complementing the optical design and telephoto reach, an Optical Image Stabilizer compensates for up to 4.5 stops of camera shake to benefit handheld shooting with slower shutter speeds. Additionally, an STM stepping motor is also featured, which produces fast, smooth, and near-silent autofocus performance to support both stills and video recording applications.
