Canon EF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS

A general purpose lens that does it all.

Delivering impressive image quality over an incredible focal length range, the EF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS is a lens for all occasions. With its compact stature and exceptional 11x zoom, this is a standard zoom lens that will go with you everywhere. Instead of taking a backpack full of lenses, you can take just one – making it the ideal choice for day trips, hiking and travel. Of course, there is no point carrying around a lens if it doesn’t take great shots. Luckily, this lens not only meets optical performance expectations, it surpasses them. Utilising Canon’s wonderfully accurate Micro Motor autofocus, you will quickly and easily find the focus of your shot, allowing you to create images that are beautifully sharp with low distortion, vignetting and flare. Meanwhile, its 4-stop Image Stabiliser allows for easy handholdability in low light over a wide range of shutter speeds.
