The Canon 15–45mm zoom lens comes along with the M100 mirrorless camera. It has an aperture range of f/3.5–6.3 and offers a viewing angle of 84° 30'–33° 40'. The lens design comprises 10 optical elements in 9 groups. Three aspherical elements are included in the lens construction to ensure image sharpness and clarity throughout the zoom range. An STM stepping motor handles the autofocusing performance, facilitating a quiet and quick operation. The optical image stabilizer ensures there is no shaky footage up to 3.5 stops when shooting handheld. In addition to the lens focus, the camera comes with a Dual Pixel CMOS AF system that is akin to the focus offered by a camcorder. The Dual Pixel CMOS AF provides accurate focus with its 49 phase-detection points. For recording videos, the Movie Servo AF ensures smooth focusing, with automatic detection of different subjects and distances in the scene at hand.
