Affordable, high-quality zoom
The EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II is a high-quality, standard zoom lens that will appeal to photographers who prefer to travel light. With a focal length equivalent of 29-88mm in 35mm format, the lens’ wide zoom range is suitable for most general photography. For close-up work, the working distance is just 0.25m (25cm) throughout the zoom range.
Compatibility:
As this lens features a Canon EF-S mount you are only able to use this lens on a Canon camera with a cropped sensor (APS-C), such as the Canon 350D, 450D, 550D, 600D, 7D. This lens is not suitable for full-frame cameras, such as the 5D Mark II/III, EOS 6D, 1D X.


Image Stabilizer
To minimise risk of image blur, the EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II incorporates Canon’s four-stop Image Stabilizer technology. This allows photographers to use shutter speeds up to four times slower than normal with no perceptible increase in image blur - ideal for shooting in low light.

Aspherical lens element with Super Spectra coating
As well as ensuring true colour balance and sharp, high contrast images, Super Spectra coatings combat ghosting and flare by absorbing light reflecting off digital camera sensors or internal lens elements. An aspherical lens element delivers crisp, high contrast images - even with the aperture fully open.

Circular aperture
For shots taken at wide apertures, a circular aperture diaphragm gives a smooth, even blur to your background, helping to emphasise foreground subjects and remove distractions.

Lead-free glass
Only environmentally-friendly, lead-free glass is used in the construction of the EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II

Accessories
The EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II is supplied with a lens cap and dust cap.

Spanish sun...

Our absolute favourite find was the Museo Sorolla, a celebration of the life and work of Joaquin Sorolla (1863-1923). The museum was once the home of this influential painter.
