Canon EF-S 18mm – 55mm 1:3.5-5.6 IS Lens- See How Powerful It Is The Canon EF-S 18mm – 55mm 1:3.5-5.6 IS lens is one of the newest lens in its line of affordable DSLR’s kit lenses. The DLSR’s kit lenses which started with the 18mm – 55mm way back in the year 2003 as an accompaniment to the innovative EOS Digital Rebel/300D which is widely considered to be the camera which began the cheap DSLR revolution. This lens is a much flexible compare to the other ZUIKO lenses that was produced along with the 8 megapixel Olympus E500 DSLR camera. The focal length was selected to be equivalent to the most popular 28mm – 90mm kit lenses that is available for entry-level SLR cameras with a 35mm equivalent. In addition to that, the Canon EF-S18mm – 55mm 1:3.5-5.6 IS lens has a lightweight plastic construction. This is the reason why this lens is a much affordable compare to the more expensive ZUIKO lenses that you can get along with the 8 megapixel Olympus E500 DSLR camera. The design of the EF-S 18mm – 55mm 1:3.5-5.6 IS lens of the Canon industry was a little bit refreshed with the introduction of a MK II version to come with the Digital Rebel XT/350D, but this only actually featured slight cosmetic changes along with no improvement to the optics. That optics gained a reputation as rather average performer and was never the strong point of this lens since a lot of the people are looking to upgrade quite fast. On the other hand, today, the Canon industry produced a major improvement in the shape of this Canon EF-S 18mm – 55mm 1:3.5-5.6 IS lens that is looks destined to become the new standard kit lens for the APS-C DSLR cameras of the Canon industry which include the EOS 450D. Now, what is the IS stands for? Well, it stands for Image Stabilization. The good thing about this new lens that you can’t be found in the ZUIKO lens of an 8 megapixel Olympus E500 DSLR camera is that it features the completely new and simplified optical image stabilization module. As a matter of fact, the Canon claims that the optical image stabilisation which is packed in the new Canon EF-S 18mm – 55mm 1:3.5-5.6 IS lens offers the same performance to that given in their higher end and much expensive IS lenses. Unlike to the ZUIKO lenses of an 8 megapixel Olympus E500 DSLR camera, this new Canon lens is a clear response to the economical and competitive threat boasts by the other manufacturers that offers a sensor-shift stabilization in quite affordable DSLR cameras. If you try to compare the 18mm – 55mm 1:3.5-5.6 IS lens to the non-IS MK II version, you can really see that it provides more than simply the addition of an IS unit. Actually, this new lens is a little bit longer comparing to its predecessor. Aside from that, the front element of the 18mm – 55mm 1:3.5-5.6 IS lens is significantly larger in diameter, the optical diagram also unveils that the next three elements are larger. Most probably, this is to provide the demands of the optical IS unit. Author Info: Latest cameras are showing in the market nowadays and it’s really important to know their features and what are they offering compare to other SLR or Camera. Right now I’m using Canon EF-S and Olympus E500. They have both great features and I’m very satisfied on them.
